“In a perfect world, every dog would have a home and every home would have a dog.”
Whoever first uttered those words might have worked at a pet shelter, where today in America more than half of all animals that enter shelters are euthanized*.
Your company can help by choosing Happy Tails, a fun team-building workshop that benefits local animal shelters by donating adoption care packages.
Helping Pets Get Adopted- a Worthwhile Cause in Any Locale
Everywhere, the idea of giving locally is a growing trend- why not make a connection right in your own neighborhood? By choosing our Happy Trails charity team building workshop, you’re making an investment in your team and in your own community.
Donations can be made to the ASPCA, a local pet shelter, or a program of your choosing.
How Your Team Contributes
Not everyone knows this, but up front expenses often prevent people from adopting or rescuing pets. Happy Tails workshops have teams put together care packages full of things like food bowls, collars, chew toys and other incidentals new pet owners will need.
By helping to ease the burden of pet adoption, Happy Tails participants make a difference…right in their own community.
How Helping Pets Get Adopted Results in Stronger Teams
Although participants have fun putting together their care packages, it’s what’s going on behind the scenes that matters the most. Each customizable Happy Tails workshop is developed with the goal of helping team members develop an understanding of personality styles.
Why is that an important skill for teams? Because once they understand that different personality styles communicate in different ways, doors start to open up to new routes of communication.
By developing a sense of how different people like to be talked to in different ways, team members have gained a high-level skill they’ll take back to the workplace. Communication barriers are dissolved. Conflict is avoided. Participation levels skyrocket. Just watch how productivity soars!
Hands-On Activities Make For an Engaging Workshop
You’ll be impressed at how facilitators are able to “hide” the challenging lessons amidst a high-energy series of activities. Groups must earn the items for their care packages by completing puzzles. These puzzles can only be solved using the targeted high-level communication skills.
Participants are easily engaged by the time-tested modules presented to them in each workshop.
They’re also motivated by the common goal of working for the Happy Tails cause, and in the end they’ve had a great day…and come away with important skills to take back to work with them!
