The Energized Team: A Taste of Adventure

Purpose:

Laugh, play, connect and discover new ways of thinking, being and working together. Perfect for the company offsite where you want to schedule a break for team building activities. Get people outside interacting with each other and re-energized! Or take an entire day to delve deeper into team dynamics - participants will gain powerful insights about themselves and each other in an atmosphere of fun, challenge and high spirits.

Description:

Taste of Adventure is all about experiential activities with a common theme of, well… adventure! We invite participants to work together to find solutions to intriguing challenges.

We may ask your team to navigate the slopes of Mt. Everest, rebuild a high mountain camp that’s been blown apart in a snowstorm, or cross a raging river using nothing but the most rudimentary of tools. Without climbing trees or swinging from ropes, we invoke a sense of adventure designed so that everyone can participate.

Guaranteed to elicit a lot of laughter, some good-hearted competition, a wealth of ah-ha moments and practical insights that can be applied back at the office.

Outcomes:

  • Stronger relationships and a deeper sense of camaraderie.

  • New perspectives on how to work together as a team.

  • An adventurer's attitude - ready and willing to take on new challenges.

  • Understanding the value of habitually taking time to purposefully explore and discover as a team.

Typical insights we hear during activity debriefs:

  • “Wow, I really need to listen more.”

  • “When we don't ask employees for their insights we’re not taking advantage of a valuable resource.”

  • “We need to play more - it makes me want to support the people I work with.”

  • “We're so task oriented. I can definitely see the advantage of taking time to make a plan.”

  • “As a leader, I now see the importance of stepping back and letting the team solve problems without me micro-managing.”

  • “Sure we make a plan, but then we just go off and ignore it as soon as we feel any pressure. Time for that to stop.”
