Great things in business are never done by one person.

They're done by a team of people.

 

Steve Jobs

Why IS Team building so crucial?

One of the most valuable qualities that could be developed in a person is their ability to be a team player. A team player is someone who works effectively with others and who adds value to the dynamics and vision of the group. In today's fluid world that is in a constant change of flux, collaboration and teamwork plays a more crucial role than ever. Hence, being a team player is vital to the health and

success of an organisation.

Real teamwork requires these specific behaviors: 

  • vulnerability-based trust,

  • healthy conflict,

  • active commitment,

  • peer- to- peer accountability,

  • Goal- oriented actions.

 

Thankfully with enough coaching, patience and time, most people can learn to embrace these concepts and become the team player they are meant to be.

OUTBOUND AND TEAM BUILDING

Learning can be fun, transformative, and full of skill acquisition. With a rich combination of in-class facilitation and experiential outdoor activities, learning can become effortlessly adaptive. A safe space is created within these learning environments for participants to step out of their comfort zone and test their abilities in being a team member and leader. With a unique recipe of case studies, indoor discussions, outdoor activities and role playing, participants will learn how to deal with challenges, embrace risks, and push beyond their limiting fears at a safe and conducive learning environment.

OUR PHILOSOPHY IN

DEVELOPING TEAM BUILDING

The Outbound and Teambuilding program consist of

indoor facilitation, class sessions, case studies, group projects, problem solving and coaching in the group and individual levels. Participants would undergo pre and post- exercise assignments to gauge their growth level as well as outbound activities that would put their collaborative and communication skills to the test. The outbound activities below illustrates some of our previous engagements in Team Capability Building.

Your Team Building Experience

 Our goal is to create experiences at a safe space for our participants to uncover their inner leader and potential. We want our clients to feel vulnerable enough to share with us their difficulties and at the same time, strong enough to move forward with the readiness

to transform themselves.
