Treasure Hunting Team Building!

Posted by Chris Hill on Wednesday, July 27th, 2011 - 6:03 pm

What a happy ending that will now introduce a new team building event – Treasure Hunting!  On Sunday, my wife lost her wedding ring at the beach but thanks to Chris Turner from www.lostjewellery.com and his private ring and treasure finders my wife’s ring was found two days later. They asked for nothing for the hours spent combing the beach, of course I offered a reward. My wife’s tears of sadness (and there were many) turned to tears of shear joy!

This has given birth to a new teambuilding treasure hunting concept and we will be putting it to test and developing it over the next little bit.

Concept: Teams will go to pre-determined areas where “treasure” has been hidden, they will then use metal detectors outside or special locator devices inside to procure as much “treasure” as possible. Working as teams, they must decide the best patterns and strategy to find the treasure. It can involve multiple locations, travel, digging, maps, detectors, gps and above all, it will be fun.

Stay tuned for this new offering from Slixer Entertainment! If you would like a Treasure Hunt, simply email chris@slixer.com and we’ll offer you a great rate as our first treasure hunt testers.

Toronto Murder Mystery!

“Thanks so much for all your hard work…nothing but positive things about the evening.” say HB Group / The Co-operators about their Murder Mystery Dinner we performed at The Old Mill the other day. Another day in entertaining our guests and more great feedback!

We supplied the venue, organized every aspect from cocktails, dinner to casting and hosting the Mystery. The only thing the client had to do was show up with a smile and pay one easy bill.

We love to entertain Toronto!

How To Motivate

Posted by Chris Hill on Friday, July 8th, 2011 - 2:42 pm

When it comes to motivation, there’s a gap between what science knows and what business does. Our current business operating system-which isbuilt around external, carrot-and-stick motivators-doesn’t work and often does harm. We need an upgrade. And the science shows the way. This new approach has three essential elements: (1) Autonomy – the desire to direct our own lives; (2) Mastery – the urge to make progress and get better at something that matters; and (3) Purpose – the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves. Daniel H. Pink – Drive

There you have it, employees and yourself work best when left to your own devices, to allow the mind to flow, to hit the zone where true creativity can shine. To many organizations require regimented attendance combined with review after review to monitor progress which only turns up the treadmill but does not produce better productivity.

Working solely for monetary reward is fruitless; we need balance and that can be achieved through the three aforementioned essentials.

Now let’s look at what Slixer has to offer and how we can help turn the monotonous drudgery of the daily grind into a more flowing environment of creative input and positive results.
