One of senior instructors, Dan Eckelman, facilitated a Build-A-Bike ® team building workshop for the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill a couple of days ago, and one of the local news stations decided to cover the event. UNC organized the event for their MBA students as a way to develop leadership among the students and also give back to the community. Dan was able to customize the content for the students, and as the introduction, he helped them memorize the core values of their business school in just a couple of minutes. At the conclusion of the event, after all of the bikes were completed, a group of local children who had entered an essay contest were invited into the room to receive a brand new bicycle.

Partnering with The Leader’s Institute ® for charity team building events can create a fun activity for your team, help build teamwork and leadership skills, and possibly create a feel-good story for your local news station!
