It doesn’t matter if it’s the client we’re working for, Magnovo’s devoted facilitators, or the philanthropic community, our Charity Workshops do a lot of good for everyone connected to them. Although we custom design each and every one of them to fit an individual client’s needs, Magnovo Charity workshops all seem to accomplish similar things. They all teach teamwork skills like advanced communication, leadership tactics, and big picture thinking. Along the way, our Charity Workshops also illustrate the many ways that good teamwork makes everyone’s work life more satisfying, fun, and productive. Last but certainly not least, they add new dimensions of meaning and reward by showing how the work a team does can positively affect others. These are the kind of skills that companies can build on going forward.
Improved Communication Nets Great Results for HCA
HCA brought 50 energetic hospital administrators to Sheraton Hotel in downtown Nashville for their WheelCharity Workshop. Their goals were to have a bit of fun, deepen the bonds they felt with one another, and produce something helpful to the community. They also wanted to improve their skills in advanced communication, especially their shared ability to anticipate one another’s needs.
Due to the high levels of energy the HCA team brought to the table, the workshop got off to a great start. A friendly competitive spirit ran through the ‘warm-up activities like Say What I Say, Cup Pyramid, and Air Counting, and persisted into the parts earning phase that preceded the actual assembly of the wheelchairs.
The Donation to Friends in General Capped an Amazing Day
When our clients participate in one of our Charity Workshops, they donate the products of their work to a local philanthropic organization of their choosing. The HCA understandably chose to donate the wheelchairs they assembled to a Nashville charity called Friends in General, a group of volunteers who provide much-needed support for local hospitals.
It was obvious that the HCA team felt a special connection to the work that this group does. They remained enthusiastic and focused throughout the entire workshop, especially while they were putting together the finished wheelchairs. Overall, this was a very satisfying workshop for everyone involved, including our facilitators. They found it gratifying to know that the HCA would be taking their new communication skills and increased morale back to the office.
