Team Building Event Relies on Creativity, Resource Management, and Collaboration

Bonita Springs, FL - February 2, 2016 – More than 100 Cotiviti team members attending the annual Leadership Summit worked together in groups as part of a team-building exercise, constructing mini golf stations from allocations of canned and packaged foods, and rudimentary supplies. The food was later donated to a local charity.

“Creativity, resource management, and most of all teamwork were needed to be successful in this endeavor,” said winning team captain and Cotiviti VP and Corporate Controller Adrienne Calderone

IT Director Kurt Rahn, whose team came in second, agreed.

“Between gaining consensus on a building concept and branding, constructing the mini golf hole together, making a flag to represent it, developing a presentation together and delivering that presentation to the entire group, a lot was involved,” he said.

Winners were declared based on the strength of their presentation, adherence to branding themes, presentation strength and playing scores from their own and others’ mini golf holes. All team members participated. At the completion of the team-building event, the course was taken apart and the several hundred pounds of canned and packaged food were donated to a grateful local charity, the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida.

Team members were grouped together and timed on execution of their project.
