Team building on a sailboat is a totally challenging and engaging training tool, in which participants learn directly and immediately and rely on all their resources to achieve individual and shared objectives, accelerating the normal learning process.
Compared to other types of experiential training, sailing allows experiencing a moment of personal interrelation that is even stronger, not only working but also living together with colleagues in practise and completely leaving their work roles.
The metaphor plays on the importance of teamwork and motivation to operate in the market efficiently. From this experience, the group is strengthened and cohesive as it has learned to know and respect the people behind the roles.
The experience that we propose can be different depending on the group, the time available and the training objectives to develop (two days on the boat with activities involving manoeuvring, construction and recovery of a dead body, trolling and final regatta or day or half-day experience)
Training aims: team building, motivation, energy, coaching

Rafting e Canyoning
Rafting is a river descent on an unsinkable and self-bailing raft. The crew (4-8 people) steers the boat through the rapids with paddles.
The team that leads the raft must find inner balance and the right rhythm to proceed through the rapids along the river, rowing in the same direction and with the same intensity, communicating and sharing information effectively (for example, the sighting of a obstacle), being able to make decisions as quickly as possible (the direction to take), recognizing the roles (helmsman, paddlers) and the resources of each.
The group must recognize, analyze and deal with the overcoming of obstacles (threats and opportunities of the environment) and manage the interchangeability of people to ensure the appropriate flexibility. Canyoning has similar objectives and implementation
Training aims: team building, motivation and involvement, communication, problem solving and handling unexpected events

Cooking and Vin Building
Cooking: cooking becomes the metaphor of activities, which may be performed to feed or to impress, involving the senses and reaching ambitious goals.
The result is extremely motivating and enjoyable, especially considering the fact that the participants eat what they cook.
A panel of judges rate the best dishes, which will then be officially awarded.
This allows the participants to achieve goals and do things that at the beginning they never thought they could do.
«Vin building»: a fun activity that sees Franciacorta as a destination, known for the excellence of its wines: an unusual afternoon of leisure, playing to discover the world of wine.
The topics will be treated in a simple and engaging language, through a theoretical and practical approach that has the element of play and training as the main theme.
This will allow easy understanding even for those who approach the world of wine for the first time.
Training aims: creativity, problem solving, coaching, leadership

It is possible to reach targets of interchange and sharing, creativity, change management through the interpretation of different roles, with the use of different costumes, codes, languages, rituals depending on the context.
In the case of cinema participants create short films of their own idea or inspired by famous movie scenes that can also be used as a means of training to highlight some behaviour or they coordinate to create a single film. The films and short films can also be published on social media or youtube increasing the involvement of participants and also becoming a potential means of visibility of the group and the company.
A further theatre variant is «Brain on the air» that uses radio communication to bring into play skills in communication, time management, project management, creativity. Participants engage with the design and implementation of the pilot episode of a radio program

Jazz Training Jam Session
The focus of this proposal is music. The success of a company requires involvement, participation, sharing and passion. However, to engage first of all it is necessary to excite and, to excite and affect, it is necessary to learn to get excited.
A choir is a non-competitive, disciplined group, willing to make sacrifices, to try and try again to achieve a group result. A choir creates a harmonious dimension, in which the barriers between people are reduced naturally and where diversity becomes a resource for the successful achievement of a common, new and unexpected goal.
The activity starts with the preparation of a piece of music of choice and its interpretation guided by our vocal coach. Based on the vocal characteristics and timbre, the participants are divided and thus begin preparatory exercises. The track is then studied (individual and group), and finally the individual choral stanzas are studied.
The last step involves editing the song, the choral interpretation and the performance itself
Training aims: sharing and involvement, overcoming diversity, motivation

Social Team Building
In this type of project participants are faced with a social issue, and then work together with a goal «socially useful» goal. This type of activity can therefore combine the training aims of the company and the pursuit of the common goal of the group and to experience integration with people from very different fields with respect to the company.
The type of project is chosen together with the company and may have a correlation with the corporate mission (for example, a project to raise awareness of recycling for schools organized by a municipal company, or the design and care of the gardens of a beneficial association, or redeployment of premises used for social purposes).
The activity is always divided in a planning phase and an operational and executive phase. After the planning phase, communication on social networks that gives visibility to the initiative may be expected.
Training aims: team spirit, integration with different people and realities, sense of belonging, planning and organization, listening, leadership, motivation, sales and negotiation skills

One piece at a time… that’s how major projects are implemented. So why not use the same approach for team building based on Giant Domino?
Each work group is entrusted with the design and subsequent realization of 3 Giant Domino tiles. To this end, the participants are provided with cardboard and a variety of other materials to customize their tiles, following a common theme.
Each group is also asked to identify from among its members the person in charge / and to meet the delegates of the other groups. They will in fact define what form the tiles should be – in order to achieve the Domino effect, the tiles have to have similar, if not identical shape and size.
On completion of the construction phase, the giant tiles are then placed in the space and here is the «great» show of the progressive fall of all the tiles…
This metaphor is particularly effective to convey the message that the success of a brand goes through all those that represent it on the market.
Training aims: interaction between divisions, collaboration, creativity, communication, planning
In this case, our proposal is based on the design and creation of some real flying machines: small hot-air balloons (minimum dimensions: 2 m in height) that are able to soar, thanks to the pressure of the air heated by the thermal burner.
It is possible to choose to use helium, which allows having the activity even indoors.
Collaboration in this situation will be the key to get the job done, in respect of the other participants.
However, it will be with the final effect that the idea of teamwork will be achieved: all individuals who put together what they have done to create an explosion of colour flying high as a bright cloud
Training aims: collaboration, team building, creativity, negotiating, managing resources and budgets, time management, problem solving
