What is considered a corporate event? 🤔

A corporate event is more than a cocktail hour or company kickoff. Professional development is geared toward team bonding, inclusion, and community. 

Corporate events often focus on learning through engagement. This means frank discussions that touch on serious topics like diversity, mental health, and conflict resolution. Rewarding professional development workshops build excitement among your team and encourage lively discussion.

Hosting a virtual corporate event is rife with benefits you’ll notice in the workplace immediately.

  • Your team’s professional and social skills are sharpened 🗣
  • Stronger bonds give your team an edge over the competition 👯
  • A robust sense of confidence that comes with knowledge 💪
  • Conversations without the pressure of deadlines and projects are honest and can even be eye-opening 👀

The 5 best corporate team building events 🙌

1. Mindful Leadership Workshop 🧠💪

Metacognition is the concept of thinking about your own thinking. How can you lead a team unless you understand yourself through and through? 

Mindfulness leads to clearer thinking, sharper decision-making, and deeper insights. This workshop guides you through the process of opening up to yourself.

Why is this a great corporate event? 

No matter your level or department, self-aware thinking is key to success. Your team will come away with thoughts organized ready to apply all their fresh knowledge to the workplace.
