A team building course is about getting people to interact with each other. As a result the course is designed to teach the theory through practice. Every concept explained in the course is followed by a relevant exercise which a trainer can use to further emphasize a key point.
The course contains more than 20 practical exercises that a trainer can choose from to tailor the course based on the delegates’ needs. Delegates will have a chance to participate in exercises on subjects such as coaching, cooperation, problem solving, trust and emotional skills. The exercises include 12 optional activities which can be used to extend the course further or to focus on specific areas based on delegates’ needs. These exercises can be used to increase the bonding between team members through shared experience or collective problem solving. All exercises are exclusive to this course and each exercise has been designed specifically in line with a concept vital to the making of a successful team.
