Introduction

E
veryone is talking about teams. Much theory is bounded around but…  

  • Do you know what to actually do to enable teamwork to be more effective

  • Do you feel that you have the theory but don’t quite know how to apply it?

Approach

The course will start with introductory sessions and ice breakers.  This will provide a chance to really get to know each other and get us ready to learn together.  We will then use a series of short activities and workshops to explore the challenges we face through teamwork. The workshops will be used to present and learn certain tools and techniques as described above. 

We will use many practical examples to both learn and see the impact of not applying these tools well, while giving everyone the opportunity to practice, and see the success of using them correctly.  Finally a ‘team adventure challenge’ will be set to give the whole team the chance to put their learning to the test.  

Kinetic Development

The course will involve activities in the outdoors including some adventurous elements. In addition to the facilitators, who will assist with your learning, all activities will be supervised by qualified outdoor instructors. The outdoors provides a stimulating environment in which to explore these topics and accelerates learning.  No one will be pressured into doing any activity that they do not wish to carry out.  Our centre is situated in the beautiful Wye valley and so the programme also provides a fresh and invigorating environment in which to study and reflect on your personal skills and effectiveness. 

As much as possible, we will remain flexible providing the opportunity for people to relate what is being learnt to their personal situations.  We will teach the most appropriate tools and techniques for the set of participants.
