WHAT YOU WILL GET FROM THIS PROGRAM?
“Excellence is the gradual result of always striving to do better”- Pat Riley
Play Full Out!
Employees need a breather from their job requirements. Thanks to technology, our blended learning platform will encourage them to play full out and step out of their comfort zone to learn something new so that they realize that perfection is about learning from they’re experiences and overcoming challenges.
Communicate Out Loud With Confidence.
Let’s face it, working from home can be lonely and this can compromise Mental Health. It does not discriminate age. This can come in a form of an over scheduled employee that can lead to a burnout and stress. The program will show them how that it’s ok to take a step back, voice out and harness the power of teamwork to lessen the load.
Prioritising What is Important.
Working from home can be distracting especially when we have to differentiate between work and family commitments. It happens especially in an environment that materialises perfection and results where one tries to please everyone at the expense of the important tasks. The program will show them how to acknowledge and embrace where they are now and what it takes to move forward with the courage and confidence to say yes to the important things that matters.
Embracing Diversity and Harnessing The Power of Teamwork.
It’s even easier to reach out to our colleagues across the border but communication can be distorted or wrongly perceived which can lead to conflict. The program will encourage them to get to know each other to build trust so that they can learn how to work together better while embracing change, diversity and appreciating different cultures, values and beliefs.
OUR CREATIVE LEARNING APPROACH
“I never teach my students, I only provide the conditions in which they can learn”.- Albert Einstein
Our role as your facilitator is to facilitate the learning process. We use our knowledge and experience over the years to simplify complex topics and to look out for potentials in your employees to best challenge them out of their comfort zone to be a better version of themselves.
The activities are designed within their capabilities to make it easier for participants to apply life-changing lessons in a process called Experiential Learning. We believe people learn best by doing, and discover strengths that they never knew they had to overcome challenges. Afterwards, our intrinsic debriefing techniques will help them draw the most out of the experience. They will play, but play with purpose!

Each Breakout room will be facilitated by our facilitators and everyone will congregate again in the Main Room for the debriefing session.
Here are some of the proven and tested activities that will encourage learning in a fun engaging way:-
Could Waze be your way out?
Have you ever been part of a team where everybody thinks they have the answer to the question? Challenge your communication, analytical and problem-solving skills as a team. How will you deal with the frustration of coming to a dead end as a team, or when the entire team each starts seeing out a different road to take to arrive at the destination?
The Construction Site
Divide OR Conquer?
Nothing like a little sabotage from within the ranks to bring a team together. Or destroy it? Find out what your team is made off with this intriguing activity we’ve designed to bring home some important lessons about perception and trust in teamwork.
This session will encourage participants to discover the value of trust within a team and how it has an impact on the final outcome and performance. Participants will also discover the threats surrounding the team and how they can work together to overcome it. As much as we would like to share, the outcome must be left to be discovered by the participants engaging in this activity. Here’s what one participant has to say about it ” I was so caught up with my routine that i didn’t see it coming, when it hit us, it really rang a lot of bells and it was back to the drawing board”.
The Almighty Pyramid
Listen to Pharaoh’s Instructions
Clothes maketh the man, some people say. But we say, cloths maketh the team. That’s ALL we are allowed to say – that this activity involves clothes…
This activity encourages participants to act upon instructions and dealing with change and uncertainty. In times like this teams need to identify at which stage of Team Development they’re at. They might identify the potential threat and opportunity surrounding them but do they have what it takes to implement it? Could Pharaoh be in their way? To let him be, convince him or walk away? Participants will have to use their creativity and influencing skills to adapt and affect.
Did Picasso care what others think?
Do you have what it takes to guide another man’s (or woman’s) actions? When someone gets lost, is it the fault of the instructor, or the person taking the instructions?
Some say perception is our reality, such as ” we are doing well, everyone knows their roles and responsibilities, there are SOP’s in place to follow and we are producing results better than expected. Fine and Good, Well Done, Kudos. But here’s the thing, if what we think we are is the real deal then are the threats and opportunities surrounding the organisation or team a fallacy? This may create distrust and doubts which essentially affects performance. This is where participants will discover the essence of situational leadership. A team without clear direction perish. Participants will learn the different types of leadership styles and when to use it intelligently to communicate the vision and mission of the organisation to team members.
