TeamPaint pays it forward
Nonprofit agencies will have the opportunity to take part in an innovative team building workshop with Omaha-based TeamPaint. Four nonprofit agencies will be awarded workshops for up to 25 participants each (valued at $2,500). The workshops will take place during 2017.
“We help build high-performing teams, which are critical for the success of businesses as well as nonprofit agencies,” says TeamPaint founder Beverly Todd. “We are excited to help nonprofits implement this critical piece of organizational development.”
Todd, who launched TeamPaint three years ago, has more than 25 years experience in executive leadership with nonprofit corporations in Nebraska. She also is a contemporary artist, with work hanging in businesses and homes across the U.S. and Canada.
“TeamPaint is not your usual kum ba yah,” says Todd. “It’s igniting your team using arts-based learning. It’s not about making art, but learning through the experience of art. As teams paint together they think strategically, build bonds, open communications, find shared values, shift perceptions, think inventively, take risks, and celebrate shared success.”
The two-hour TeamPaint workshop includes hands-on group painting with discussion as teams share what they learn about themselves and their teammates.
Who has TeamPainted? Teams across the U.S. from California to Florida, including teams from Union Pacific, ConAgra, the University of Nebraska Alumni Association, the University of Nebraska at Omaha, and Independent Pharmacy Cooperative, have used TeamPaint as part of their development programs.
Nonprofit agencies are asked to apply for a workshop by Dec. 10, 2016. Awards will be announced Jan. 1, 2017.
