ADVENTURE AWAITS... AND WE HELP YOU FIND IT
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.
In today's diverse and dynamic workplace, teams comprise individuals with varying personalities and work styles. While these differences can pose challenges to team cohesion, it is essential to recognize and value the unique contributions of introverts. By leveraging team building activities, we can create an environment that allows introverts to have their voices heard and maximizes their potential within the team. In this article, we will explore the benefits of team building for introverts and provide strategies for maximizing their participation and engagement.
We have a great team at On Purpose Adventures and I'm excited to have the opportunity to share more about them in this newsletter.

It's often said that failure is not fatal if you keep moving, it's merely a lesson. Let's dive into how we can embrace risk, learn from setbacks, and develop a resilient mindset.
Learning from Failure
One of the most significant benefits of failure is the opportunity to learn and grow. Each setback presents a chance to analyze what went wrong, identify areas for improvement, and adjust our approach.
May 24th is one of my favorite days of the year. Happy National Scavenger Hunt Day, LinkedIn community!
Unleash your adventurous spirit with a Scavenger Hunt to celebrate. Scavenger hunts offer a unique blend of adventure, teamwork, problem-solving, and entertainment, making them a popular activity enjoyed by people of all ages and backgrounds.
Exploration Through Scavenger Hunts
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.
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.
