By the Numbers
92% of participants feel more creative after Canvas Creek (Many have taken on new challenges or solved old dilemmas shortly after this experience).
73% of teams don't notice outside noise after 20 minutes (during debriefing we talk about tapping into that level of concentration at work).
64% of teams arrive with someone who does not want to participate.
Only 3.4% of participants "quit' once they are started. (In team building it is hard to get full buy-in so we are very proud of the fact that everyone participates).
25% of the team paintings contain evidence of a 'peacekeeper'. We'll tell you who it is during debriefing.
99% of participants feel invigorated by the experience.
100% of participants say they want to do it again, even those who come to the event sure they don’t want to do it the first time!
1 pound: the amount of paint on the average canvas. 7 pounds is the average amount of paint on the 'most angry' canvas.
100% of participants feel more collaborative after Canvas Creek.
100% of participants like making decisions in silence (several call it freeing, no longer do they feel tied to limitless consensus gathering. We talk about how to use this insight at work).
33% of the paintings contain an eye. (We don't know why, it's just an interesting fact.)
Six teams report having said "you're fired" to a problematic team member shortly after Canvas Creek. They go on to say they feel like they'd tried 'everything' and were finally able to say good-bye with confidence. We don't want anyone to be fired, but sometimes it's good to see the writing on the wall. (Or would that be the paint on the canvas?)
79% of canvases contain hand prints (by using 4 of the 5 senses this experience provides visceral responses. Plus, the paint really does feel good!).
There has been over $22,000 raised for non-profits during April 2012. Our annual goal is $100,000. We'll help you have a creative fundraiser!
We hit the 4000 participant mark! (This is old news- next goal- one million customers served.) Yeah, we dream big. You should read our goal setting book. Click here
