It's the taleas Team Demotivational Poster print, woo!
I print all taleas posters on high quality, photo paper. This paper is much thicker than regular, and takes color much better than regular poster paper.
Having worked at companies as large as a Fortune 50 and as small as a two-person startup I feel like I have been subjected to a large number of team building exercises. Some will start out with a personality assessment - not a test, as we're taught that we are not taking a personality test that one can pass or fail, but an examination and revelation of individual personality traits. We're then given tools that we need to improve our communication skills, increase productivity, become more helpful, become indoctrinated in company culture and lore, get more motivation, or just get along better with our colleagues.
While the core benefit is mostly well-intentioned, the execution can be quite painful. First of all, it always starts early in the morning and who likes to do...anything before 9 AM? Plus, you're always being forced to team build with Lisa from Accounting or Greg from Sales, two people you wouldn't trust to build a LEGO set, let alone a team.
And the group activities...my God, the group activities. Why are trust falls so important for team-building? Why do we have to role play? And why oh why do they have to make us watch the instructional videos right after our paltry lunch? The video playing softly, the lights dimmed and the room warm - if that's not a recipe for an unintentional nap, I don't know what is.
A couple of the more demoralizing team building exercises I have been through include having to cross-dress for a play and being interrogated for 15 minutes on very personal aspects of my life in front of the entire company. So, you know, the only thing we were building was my anxiety.
I get it, these events are sometimes important and sometimes helpful too. But they are just so awkward and so labored and so long that I'd much rather be back at the cubicle.
We have all seen motivational posters in a number of places. From bedrooms to classrooms to offices, it seems that everyone needs some motivation at times.
There is nothing wrong with that, sure enough, those posters of the cat "hanging in there" have helped a lot of people over the years. But sometimes you need something that is a bit more direct and frank. Sometimes you need something like the Taleas demotivational poster.
As you know, traditional motivational posters typically use white frames and black backgrounds with a centered inspirational image that is generally about teamwork making the dream work or practicing patience and endurance. That's not quite the route I took. Mockingly, demotivational posters use the same light on black format with either an ironic image and sarcastic caption or an inspirational image with a sarcastic caption. In keeping with the usual whimsical and cartoony Taleas style, I have decided to create a collection of cute, funny, sarcastic, and light demotivational posters in my own style. While it's a very stark departure from the expected format I feel like it presents the dark and sarcastic tones in a more lighthearted manner.
And who knows, maybe these can motivate you like the others. Sure, they don't have the same gentle, soft phrasing as traditional motivational posters but that doesn't mean they don't carry the same power. Sometimes you need swift kick in the rear end to get moving and sometimes you need a cynical and sarcastic point of view to put the world into perspective. That's exactly what you'll get with these demotivtional posters.
