Yellow Camo Crew: Introducing Jen Chacon

19 July 2023

In this week's newsletter, we are continuing to introduce readers to the incredible team we have at On Purpose Adventures.

On Purpose Adventures' founder, Ben-Jamin Toy, was introduced to Jen Chacon by Jimmy Sorrells, owner of Liberty Networking . He spoke at a few events in Greenville, South Carolina and didn't meet Jen when he was in town. A few weeks later Jimmy introduced them and Ben-Jamin asked Jen if she had more bandwidth. If she could take on more and she said yes. Jen felt like being a team building facilitator was a calling for her and we set to determining how to best utilize and promote Jen's skills.

Team Building, Bonding & Entertainment in Kayaks

10 May 2023

Many organizations have done the same things over and over while expecting different results. This applies to team building & bonding as well.

They gather the team together then do trust falls. Or they leave the office for a 2 hour ropes course excursion. Or they take the team bowling one afternoon.

Then leaders are surprised when the teams aren't magically communicating and working cohesively the next day.

Dynamic Change as a Strategy for Success

26 April 2023

Is your organization willing to change?

Many leaders stand by the most dangerous phrase in business: "This is how it's always been done." They have this stale mindset that just because something has worked in the past, the business never has to change.

The "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mindset shows leaders who are only thinking about the day to day. They can't get outside this mindset to see the big picture and imagine the great heights their business could reach through dynamic change.
