We  transform the way teams work together by creating and running inspirational, enjoyable team days as well as facilitating ongoing team support and development programmes. 

 

We help teams to break down barriers, open up communication channels, unlock creativity, and generate trust in a variety of creative, inspiring ways including...

  • Working outdoors and connecting with nature

  • Drumming, singing and other musical activities

  • Creative arts and crafts

  • Drama and improvisation-based activities

  • Games and team challenges

  • Facilitated discussions in a safe and structured environment

  • TetraMap® 

We use TetraMap® with teams because by using the four Elements of nature as a metaphor to describe different preferences, perspectives and priorities, teams have a shared language and a safe way of exploring how they work together. Team members each complete a TetraMap profile to identify their own Elemental preferences and those of colleagues. We then use this understanding to explore how they work as a team, how it affects communication and relationships both within the team and outside the team, and how they can be more effective as a team, as well as using it as a framework to develop a shared team vision, values and objectives.

 

Our team development events and programmes typically focus on one or more of the following:

  • Increasing team spirit, morale, and motivation

  • Helping people get to know and understand each other better

  • Enabling team members to appreciate and harness diversity within the group

  • Identifying, valuing and using the preferences, strengths and skills within the team effectively

  • Increasing trust 

  • Improving communication 

  • Promoting greater collaboration within and between teams

  • Developing a shared vision

  • Identifying and agreeing shared goals and plans
