Sometimes the best approach to a problem is to hit it head on. For groups looking to bond, we offer the team building workshop.
Our activities generally begin with the concept of Yes, And... The idea is that participants have to hear what someone says and agree that what is said is 100% correct. In fact, they have to then add an idea to it and build upon that initial idea. This leads to very strange and fun conversations. More importantly, they are trained to be open to ideas from others in the group and to look to support others. This builds trust and the laughter bonds the employees.
A collaborative exercise involves a conversation between two participants. They get a list of ten random words from the group and work together to make a ten sentence conversation that uses those words in order. It requires being totally open and comfortable with one another while also thinking quickly on their feet. This is fun and random while usually getting laughs.
We help to develop the skills to overcome stress in the workplace and to learn how to find amicable ways of settling disputes.
Using our techniques we can improve the attitudes of employees and help them to feel more a part of the company than apart from the company.
A change in corporate culture isn't always easy. We help to adjust to new management staff and to bond that staff with each other and their employees.
Newly formed groups take time to learn about one another and develop a level of trust. We can speed that process to become productive.
There is a tendency for groups to isolate themselves from other parts of the organization and distrust others. We develop bonds between groups.
As employees work remotely, there is an increased sense of isolation, decreased communication and a general mistrust. We help overcome those limitations.
Having people laugh along the way makes them more open to new ideas and more likely to take lessons to heart. We bring funny people that can deliver serious amounts of information in an amusing manner. This helps to make any session more effective.
A MORE PRACTICAL APPROACH
Let's be honest, team building has a bad reputation among many employees. The average employee thinks of team building as listening to a hippie in Birkenstocks talk about auras and energy. The reality of the experience is much different. Our professionals come from the business world. Our team building workshops are designed with true practical goals in mind.
WE LISTEN TO YOU
Prior to any corporate team building workshop, THEY improv listens to your needs and consults with you to determine the particular needs of your group, issues that need to be considered, timing, location and budget concerns to customize a program to help achieve the needs of the company in the best way possible.
WE CARE FOR YOU! We have methods and techniques to operate with a variety of social distancing, PPE safety equipment, and remote sessions. We consult with you to best determine your concerns and needs and take them into account when determining the best way to work with your team.
OUR GREEN COMMITMENT While ultimately we serve our clients in the way that they require, we work hard to reduce the carbon footprint of any event. We recycle, utilize local talent when preferable, and look to leave places better than we found them. When we do travel, we take pains to reduce our impact on the environment.
WE COME TO YOU!
We work with groups that are small, medium and large. We also work with people that are in the city, the suburbs, and that are in more rural areas. It never made sense to get our own facilities. We come to a venue of your choosing and this allows you to make your own food and beverage options. In general, you want enough light to see, enough space to move around comfortably, and it should be quiet enough to hear. Everything else can be adjusted to.
The first step is to determine your needs. This includes potential goals, desires and concerns. The more we know about what has already been decided can allow us to narrow the conversation to approaches that interest you.
We need to know the city where the event will be as well as what kind of venue might be used. A date, or date range, for when you would like to have this and what time frame you are looking for will help to determine our commitment and availability. Knowing the size of your group, though that will likely just be an estimate, will allow us to choose appropriate options and have a better feel for the resources required.
If you know budget limitations, that can allow us to restrict the conversations to those options that will be within your financial constraints. This works in both directions. We don't want to overbuild and propose options that can't be done. Also, we don't want to provide less than we could realizing the resources that could be made available to better achieve your goals.
