In all businesses, equations are a fact of life. Gross revenue - expenses = net revenue. Occupancy rate = units occupied / number of available units. Often, in our focus on the mathematics of running companies, we forget the most important formula: happy employees = successful businesses.

At our annual Leadership Conference this month, the science, in addition to the math, of teamwork was explored. Teams who incorporate fun into their work environment generate energy. Teams fueled by energy
instill higher morale, boost company sales,
and increase employee retention. 

Bonaventure is a people company that happens to be in the real estate business. Here is our equation: one team + one set of core values + working together as one
= one, big, happy family. And happy employees = successful businesses.

What's your equation?

Our Tidewater teams came together on March 15th for our monthly BonaBrews. A huge thanks to the team at Oak Lake for hosting and preparing an amazing St. Patty's Day themed Happy Hour. We were all feeling very lucky to be a part of the #BonaFam! 

2018 Leadership Conference

What if teamwork doesn’t just "make the dream work” but it's also the very foundation that makes the dream come alive?  That’s the question that kicked off the 2018 Bonaventure Leadership Conference in Virginia Beach, VA.  According to the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, if you’re looking at a hill and trying to determine how steep it is, standing next to someone you consider to be your friend will make the hill look 10-20% less steep than if you’re looking at the exact same hill by yourself.  As we listened to speakers from Franklin Covey and the FISH! Philosophy, we brainstormed ways to generate more energy and fun into work everyday.  After all, better communication, more engagement and stronger teamwork can make the projects (and hills) that come our way on a daily basis seem a little more surmountable when we conquer them together - and the climb may be the best part of all.

Teamwork Is What Separates the Good From Great Companies

As a team and workplace specialist, I believe teams are at the heart of every successful organization. If you think about today’s workplace, everyone is working in some form of a team whether it’s a team of two or twenty. It could be a sales team, global team, admin team, engineering team, leadership team or project team. The bottom line is that an organization thrives when teamwork is at its best.

There are plenty of books on the topic about what makes a high performing team or how to get the most of team members. This isn’t rocket science and yet, many companies struggle with how to work collaboratively and effectively together. How often have you heard people talk about being part of a team but not “feeling” like a team?
