Social Events

Social events are particularly valuable because they can be arranged to suit most people's diaries/tastes, are relatively cheap and have a big impact. However, the best approach is often to have a "mixed portfolio" and do something in all of the areas.

Workshops

Workshops (preferably offsite) enable a group to focus on a particular topic without interruption.

In many situations, the most effective type of workshop is one that involves everyone in forming collective goals or developing strategic or tactical plans. This engenders ownership amongst all members, and is one of the most powerful team building activities you can use.

 

Choose from a variety of topics such as:

        Effective group dynamics and communications

        What makes a great manager - leadership skills

        Delegation and motivation

    Planning a project

    Partnering workshops

  Our carefully designed practical challenges will enable you to put theory into practice and try out different techniques, whilst having a lot of fun.

 

Other types of workshops can help to develop better relationships, mutual understanding or solve particular business issues:

Group games and exercises (that have learning points)

Psychometrics or personality questionnaires (to develop better interpersonal understanding)

Business problem solving, or information exchange

Customer interaction forums (eg: ask customers to provide feedback on the service, or what they want from you in the future

Technology exchange (invite leading figures from the industry to present their vision of the future)
