Tune-Up With Team Building

Ah, spring is the time for new beginnings. Vivid flowers bloom and everyone seems to come out of the woodwork to enjoy the warm air. Besides clearing off that pile of papers on your desk, how about immersing your group in a 4-hour team-building tune-up?

According to reference.com, "The term team building generally refers to the selection, development, and collective motivation of result-oriented teams."

Earlier this month an adventurous results-oriented team from Vestas Nacelles America dared to unplug their cell phones, step away from their computers and open themselves to the ultimate team-building experience by rock climbing with us in the Boulder Rock Club.

Most had never put on a harness or climbed before. But, after a short icebreaker everyone was in the groove; tying in, climbing up and belaying colleagues. We spiced things up with a facilitated blindfold climbing challenge. It’s always interesting to hear what people learn from working together in new ways and how these experiences easily translate back to the office in such areas as customer service or project management.

If you are looking for a way to motivate your group, spur creativity, or improve trust and communications consider a team-building tune-up. We can host your group indoors or outside.

Happy Spring!

Hi,

Also KPI’s or key performance indicators are essential for each and every team member you have in your business. These KPI’s allow you see how each individual is performing, if they are reaching their targets or not.

Team building activities are important to enhance employee working skills as well as their relationship skills. It's also a good break from all the stress in work.

We had a great experience with Ripe Stuff. They were able to help us with our communication skills as well as conflict resolution .
