What Is Your Teams Energy Like? What’s your energy like? What is the energy like in your team? What was the energy like at your last conference? When I say energy, I mean the pulse, the vibe, the buzz? What does it feel like when you walk into your office? Personal energy and team energy is a funny thing in many ways. It’s not something that is easily measured but we all know when it is not there. We cant always see it but we can always feel it. We all make a contribution to it every day and a negative energy has a huge impact on all aspects of our home and work life. When someone asks you what the vibe was like at a party, what do you say? Do you have an answer? We generally would. It may have had a great vibe at the beginning of the night but got worse as the evening went on. It may have had a terrible vibe early on, but once some friends arrived, the vibe was better. What is the energy like in your workplace or your team? What does it feel like when you walk into a meeting?  How does it feel when you leave the meeting? What’s the level of conversation like in the workplace? Is there a buzz? What is your own energy like? What type of energy do you take with you? What type of energy do you bring with you? Are you an energy vampire? What type of feeling do you leave behind after you interact with colleagues? Is it a great one? As you can probably gather from the questions, energy is everywhere. Every personal interaction has it, every group of people has it, every event, conference or meeting has it. Austin Powers had plenty of it, he called it his Mojo and was spent a whole movie looking for it. I visit a lot of work places around Australia and the one thing that always jumps out is the energy in the office. Sometimes it feels like a sad camp and other times it’s buzzing. We have a Media Client and every time we are in their offices it’s alive. The offices are full of colour, vibrancy and energy. You can feel it the energy. It’s a nice place to visit. What I do know, is that a great vibe is a positive thing. It makes everyone feel good. It’s infectious, it’s catching. It’s motivating, empowering and makes people smile. People enjoy coming to work where there is a great energy. You enjoy going to work when there is a great...

Creative Team Building: Good For Your Health? I came across a great article today that spoke about the benefits of creativity for ones health. The article states: We all know the sport and physical activity are important for good health but what about art and music? According to experts, being involved in the creative activity can have a positive effect on health. This is increasingly being recognised with many new projects now using art to deliver health messages and to promote wellbeing. Research has shown that being involved in communal art activities could even increase life expectancy, according to WA public health physician Marisa Gilles. “The arts don’t just improve mental health but also physical health – to the extent that you live longer,” Dr Gilles said. “The arts improve mental health and that in turn affects physical health directly – as we know, the two are interconnected.” Dr. Gilles said work in UK hospitals on “healing from within” had shown that art classes, ballet performances, and music could speed up recovery times in patients. Read the rest of the article here I agree wholeheartedly. When you do something creative, it feels good. It’s as if your soul has been replenished and you have restored some of your natural internal balance. We are being the way we should be. The big thing that stops you doing something creative is the internal heckler who gives you a hard time about what you may look like. The bloody heckler, he/she makes life hard! Once you get past that and wallow in the joy of being creative without the heckler giving you a hard time, it feels great. That is why Visual Funk delivers creative team building programs where we get our clients doing creative activities together. We know that people are designed to be creative but making that step to silence the heckler can be tough. We help people to silence the heckler and great things happen. Whenever we finish, say a creative art program, I always get everyone to reflect on what a nice vibe there is in the room. You can really feel it, as can all of the participants who take part. It’s as if some great energy has been unlocked and everyone is on a high. It’s a great way to leave everyone at the end of a program. Participating in a creative activity opens up great new lines of communication between those taking part and also allows for some great self-expression. We were designed to express ourselves creatively. I always point out that man was drawing, singing and dancing along time before they were creating spreadsheets....
