Corporate America’s Idols
This team building program has your group competing in teams in a talent competition. The program can also be a Community Outreach Program by performing at a local seniors’ retirement or nursing home.
Your group works in teams to write new lyrics to a well known melody. They are randomly assigned the subject matter of their song and the melody. Some pairings may go well together, for instance a team might randomly get the song “I Get By with a Little Help From My Friends” and the topic they randomly select may be “cooperation”. Perfect! Then again, they may get the melody “Wild Thing” and the topic “communication”. What do they have to do with one another!? Not much but it will be fun to see what they can come up!
Every team gets the same items: a boom-box, a recording of their melody, an envelope containing their randomly assigned topic, pens and paper, and a limited amount of time to write and rehearse their song. EVERYONE on the team must perform as this is a team effort. Teams are judged by the panel of three, either our comedic performers or three of your staff, whichever you prefer, and one team is declared Corporate America’s Idols.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH OPTION: Want to give back to the community and make this a CSR program? There are a lot of philanthropic team building programs with benefits for children but few that offer anything for the elderly. You can give the residents of a seniors’ nursing or retirement home a few hours of entertainment and laughter by bringing your talent show to their location. It’s a win/win. This fun, memorable event is a morale booster, a wonderful employee appreciation program and a great way for groups to bond. It’s also a great way to reach out to a segment of our community that is sometimes forgotten and neglected, and it makes for a great morale booster for them too. The program becomes even more interactive for the seniors group when you give them the power to vote. The judges will have input but the audience will vote for their favorite performers and ultimately decide which team wins the title of Corporate America’s Idols.
