Inspiring Team Building Events
"An organisation, no matter how well designed, is only as good as the people who live and work in it" - Dee Hock
Two years ago, I completed around the world sailing race and experienced first hand the personal performance, leadership and team development benefits of sailing.
To bring these benefits to teams and businesses, I have formed a team of world-class skippers, adventure sports specialists and survival experts to provide powerful, far-reaching and inspiring Team Building Events
, both for landlubbers and sea-goers. For greatest impact, we combine tailored skills workshops
(such as communicating in a crisis) and team preferences profiling
(such as DISC and Jung Typology Profiles) with inspiring team building activities/challenges
, which bring to life team insights and apply theoretical learning to real situations.
Each Event is designed for your team and tailored to your business requirements. Here are examples of Team Building Events
that we run:
> Sailing & Coaching Team Building Day (on water):
We start with a presentation on team communication skills, including individual DISC profiling.
After the safety briefing, we join our yacht and begin sailing. During the morning sail, your team practises effective communication and teamwork skills. During lunch, we review the techniques learned. In the afternoon, we look at adaptive leadership and develop team emergency responses, or have a friendly sailing race between two yachts.
Throughout the day, team members develop trust, rapport and interpersonal skills, while fully engaging to achieve the set team tasks. The day ends with tea & cakes presentation reviewing the skills learned and identifying how they can be applied within their work and organisation.
> New Forest Team Adventure - 2 Days (on land and in tree canopies):
On Day 1, we gather at our beautiful New Forest site for welcome lunch and warm-up team
challenge. In the afternoon, we conduct individual DISC profiles and discuss communication preferences, increasing understanding of each other’s roles & challenges and hot buttons & hooks. There are team refreshments and more engaging team activities between the sessions to apply the insights.
The team dinner is a team-cooked BBQ followed by drinks from the Wood
land Bar around our huge campfire.
Your team sleeps in cozy shepherd huts with individual wood stoves.
On Day 2, after warming breakfast, we take your team on a woodland adventure across high ropes, building bridges, negotiating giant cobwebs, learning to throw axes, shooting with bow and arrow, climbing trees, and solving logical reasoning puzzles. The challenges build on the skills learn on Day 1 and develop communication, trust and teamwork. Everyone is included and rewarded. There are refreshments and tasty lunch during the day, which ends with a team review session, coffee, tea & cake.
> Fire Fighting Team Building Day (on land):
We start with presentation on teamwork skills and introduce the tools that we will cover during the day.
After the safety briefing, we introduce the team to the fire simulator, when they have their first experience of dealing with an emergency. The team will cover diverse skills including: effective communication, strategic emergency response, decision-making, delegation, collaboration and adaptive leadership. During lunch, we review the skills learned and identify points for development.
In the afternoon fire simulator sessions, team members work together to practise the new techniques and develop their teamwork skills. The day ends with tea & cakes presentation reviewing the skills learned and identifying how they can be applied within their work and organisation.
