Sailing

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

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

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

Go Kart

Participants in fact will not have to compete individually but as a team having to manage pit stops just like in a real race, with the related strategies.

Training aims: collaboration, management of the spirit of competition in work groups, energy, planning and strategies

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.

Action Painting

Action painting is a painting technique in which colour is dripped spontaneously, launched or stained on canvas.

It is a way of experiencing art with the whole body, having fun and creating something spontaneously unique.

Participants will be in front of giant canvases, wearing overalls to protect their own clothes and will have to use paints made ​​available to create their work.

An artist expert will guide the participants, divided into teams, in achieving their canvases, with no competition, all are free to pull out their artistic sense

And at the end the canvases will be placed side by side so they can be admired by the participants, who will watch from afar, how their simultaneous and creative work makes them fly high together, in a mix of colour splashes.

Training aims: teamwork, motivation, creativity, expressiveness

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

Paper Balloon

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
