Building Team Cohesion Through Social Gatherings

With the holidays just around the corner, it is the season for gatherings. The holidays remind us of the importance of coming together: to reconnect, create new shared experiences, and deepen bonds. It allows us to practice small talk, or civil discourse—with restraint. We may trash talk each other’s favorite football teams, but then happily make plans to watch more games together. If things go well, we will leave with a better understanding of each other and at least a civil relationship with that one person who tends to raise our blood pressure.

Escape Simple. Give Your Brand Purpose

Safe. Generic. Blends in. Nothing a company would want to be associated with regarding their brand identity. Unfortunately, many companies suffer from a lack of uniqueness, memorability, and diversity within their branding strategy. This can be attributed to several different factors including struggling to keep up with customer demands and competitors, a lack of purpose behind branding efforts, and playing it too safe or oversimplifying branding efforts. When it comes to a successful branding strategy and digital experience, many say that “simple is always better.” However, this thought process often oversimplifies a company’s brand assets and customer experience.
