Vulcan’s mission is to create and advance a variety of world-class endeavors and high impact initiatives that change and improve the way we live, learn, do business and experience the world. A culture of transparency, collaboration and trust is the only setting where this kind of progress can happen.
Collaboration and trust were exactly what a Senior Director wanted to develop within his team and across the organization. Vulcan’s smart, dedicated people were so focused on delivering client projects they often missed the opportunity for strong and consistent collaborate with other teams. He recognized that what was needed was a shared experience to provide a platform for building community and cross-functional relationships. Colleagues who had seen incredible results from BECAUZ Events referred him to us.
The BECAUZ Events team delivered a custom-designed, one-day ‘Discovery Trail’ team offsite that brought 30 participants together to build a new foundation of trust and shared commitment. By gradually increasing the level of challenge, the day forged the thinking, collaboration and connection teams need to succeed. What was revealed was a more courageous way to function for higher performance, job satisfaction and goal clarity. Thinking shifted from “How can I work harder and faster?” to the more creative and satisfying “How can I think differently with my peers to get different results?”
With newfound communication skills, stronger relationships and accountability, the team and the individuals within it were transformed by the end of the day. Most importantly, the cultural shift persists today and Vulcan benefits from a continuous return on its most important investment, its people.
“BECAUZ and the challenges they posed caused us to open up and make the changes needed to become the leaders we were meant to be.”
– Senior Director, Design & Construction
