Team Training & Development

Team Training and Development

We provide workshops for teams. These workshops are designed to get participants communicating well, building trust and engaging with the central goals of the team. These are core qualities that create strong, effective teams. Thus we base all our training programs around the use of game play and creativity. We believe that this method creates a strong shared experience via participatory learning. In turn, this helps build the trust and communication necessary to be a effective team.

Reflection

We have found that teams have the best intentions to fully implement what they’ve learned. However, the day-to-day running of the business does not allow enough time to reflect. This is why we offer a follow up session after every workshop. This allows teams to actively work on using the material; and then discuss and work through any issues that may have come up. We believe reflection is a key part of Learning. The Kolb Learning cycle shows this, and we use it as a model to build all of our workshops.
