Every team in Vermontivate is unique. Today, at Christ Episcopal Church in Montpelier, Team Interfaith Power and Light had a serendipitous team meeting. It was not planned as a team meeting but three of the four team members attended a Vermont Ecumenical Council meeting with about 46 other Christian friends of several denominations to talk about our hopes for the future. How faith communities can lead the way toward sustainable use of our planet's natural resources arose as a topic of discussion throughout the meeting. The game Vermontivate never came up except when two team members who had never met introduced themselves to each other, but the spirit of Vermontivate was present with interactions with many non-team members. It would seem that today's meeting was a launch party PLUS...and there was food!!
Team-Building Challenge #6
Help your team throw a great launch party.
“The grace of God means something like: Here is your life. You might never have been, but you are because the party wouldn't have been complete without you.”
― Frederick Buechner
Launch parties are a great way to galvanize the teamy nature of your team and share what you're doing with your community.
- Check out Resource for All About Launch Parties.
- Brainstorm a bunch of great party ideas: places, activities, snacks, etc...
- Share your best idea with your team (and tell us too).
Launch party already happened? Have your own or share the story of your team with someone new.
