Here at Tribe + Glory we are dedicated to creating a place of work with strong core values and excellent company culture. As a start-up, we are ever evolving and polishing what this looks like in practice. We care deeply that T+G staff and program members are continuously growing and developing as individuals and as a team and that our company culture facilitates them to do so.
One way we love instilling good company culture is through our weekly Thursday morning team bonding time. As a group, with all staff and program members included, we play games, perform brain exercises, and hold group discussions. We love the way this time promotes team unity, creativity, and deeper thinking. Last week during team bonding we tried out a unique activity of team Fitness Marshall and it went over with smashing success! (If you do not know what Fitness Marshall is, we highly recommend you look it up on youtube and join the fan club.)
So... We'd like to introduce you to Tribe + Glory's newest company culture initiative: DANCE!
In case you need any more convincing beyond the simple fact that it is fun and hilarious to dance as a team in front of the Tribe + Glory workshop, we also googled "why dancing is good for you" and came up with the results that...
"research shows dancing can improve your mental health by boosting for overall happiness... Dancing is a great cardio workout. Like any good, low-impact cardio workout, dancing can improve cardiovascular health, increase stamina, strengthen bones and muscles and stave off illnesses."
It is also an absolute, obvious natural fit for Tribe + Glory considering Caragh and I (Loren) already own matching pink shirts that say “Let’s Dance” which we wear around the world on a regular basis when promoting T+G by giving out #JOINTHETRIBE bumper stickers and metallic temporary tattoos. We are also known to have made a habit of practicing Fitness Marshall routines in the village when the power is out at night.
All this to say, from here on out, if you show up at the Tribe + Glory workshop on a Monday morning you will find the entire T+G team engaged in “Fitness Marshall Mondays” and loving absolutely every second of it!
