Marlborough, MA (PRWEB) May 15, 2013
Last week, Altico Advisors, http://www.AlticoAdvisors.com, was a proud participant in a team building exercise at the Boys & Girls Club of MetroWest. Team building began with solving math, word, and logic problems, and culminated in the building of 5 bikes for 5 worthy children.
The program was run by The Ant & the Grasshopper, a company that specializes in team building activities that mix business with pleasure. The Altico Advisors staff was divided into 5 teams. The first task was to define five characteristics of successful teams and then prioritize them. Some teams focused on qualities like integrity, others focused on skills such as leadership and communication.
The second task was to solve a series of math, word and logic problems. An example of a word problem was: How many words can you create using the root word “cycle.” An example of one of the easier math problems was: What is the next number in this sequence: 1, 2, 6, 24, 120, 720 … ? Logic questions were a bit more complicated.
After discussing what tools and strategies were used to resolve the problems, each team received a bike in a box. The bikes had to be assembled, after which a bike expert checked them for safety and they were then presented to the 5 children who had been chosen to receive them based on need.
“Altico Advisors has always been dedicated to giving back to the community,” explains Mike Kean, President. “This was an extraordinary experience that combined team building with a heartwarming opportunity to make a difference in the lives of 5 children.”
