It’s ok to have fun…

Late one morning my radio beeped. “Wolfpack, this is Covey Leader…Wolfpack this is Covey Leader!” I sat in my truck in silence. Who was calling me on the radio? What the hell did this mean?
“Wolfpack this is Covey Leader, they drew first blood!”.
I started laughing hysterically. My Scraper Foreman, Rod Hall, was using the RAMBO – First Blood Movie characters to tell me we had hit hard rock. I quickly answered, “Covey Leader this is Wolfpack.
I got your six. Calling in reinforcements. We’ll get you out of there Johnny!”
On came the Drill & Blast crews. Problem solved.
From that day on, my nickname, “Wolfpack” was born. By project end, every supervisor on the job had a nickname. We had a great time with this, teamwork & comradery went through the roof, the project was a winner.
Are you having fun with your Team? Have you developed methods to build comradery and generate a great team atmosphere?
Sure, there are plenty of times you have to be serious.
Yes, by all means, keep it clean…. But – It’s ok to have a little fun!
