As we continue focusing on our agency’s Core Values, we’ve decided to try something new! Welcome to the first episode of the Butler Vlog, a unique look behind the scenes of our creative agency:
February’s Core Value was Finding and Bridging Gaps, which we emphasized by taking a trip to a local escape room (shout-out to Fresno Escape Room and their excellent PipeWorks room). While we could have split into two teams that competed against each other, we chose to battle the room cooperatively. As a result, we all made it out in time!
However, Each Team Approached Things Differently …
Afterward, we talked about our teams’ different tactics … and we found that each team took a completely different approach to assigning roles and examining clues. The Blue Team was content to work in a free-form manner. Each team member grabbed a puzzle and stuck with it until they needed help or wanted a second set of eyes. This allowed each individual to jump around and help solve multiple puzzles at once, as well as assign themselves roles as they unlocked the room.
The Red Team assigned its roles more rigidly, which helped them focus in on each problem but also forced them to manage their team more actively. Together, both teams broke out of the escape room with plenty of time to spare. But the Blue Team finished their half of the room first, so maybe there’s something to be said for their more free-form management style!
We hope you enjoyed this inside look at an (admittedly unconventional) day-in-the-life of Butler Branding! If you’re interested in following our vlog, be sure to click over and subscribe at our YouTube channel!
