Transforming People, Building Businesses
Team Building and Away Days
Spread the love

Proten International organises and facilitates team building and away days across Africa and Europe. We believe that the best place to work on team building is in a different environment away from the office, therefore we organise experiential team building sessions both indoors and outdoors.

We create and deliver unique packages teams and employees at all levels and they focus on set objectives such as:

  • General team-bonding
  • Improving inter-personal skills
  • Trust-building and Team Synergy
  • Improving team communication
  • Improving Team Cognition
  • Breaking down silos
  • Building synergy across functions

In today’s environment, teams take many forms. Technology and geography lead to ‘virtual teams’ that might never physically meet. Projects require rapid formation of teams for a short term activity, and increasingly team working occurs across departments. This means that team building and team skills training are an important and recurring activity.

For many organisations, the term “team building” implies a fun activity (possibly involving mud!), in which people get out of the office and do some ‘bonding’. But developing team work and team skills, and building high performing teams requires a far more comprehensive approach.

Designed and delivered in a fun and highly interactive manner, activities included in team building sessions include:

  • Psychometric profiling of team members
  • Analysis of team processes
  • Competitions
  • Sports and Games
  • Team Presentations
  • Group Work
  • General team bonding activities

Our team building packages are customised to fulfil the needs of the client and each package is built around a theme. Examples include Musical Idol, Treasure Hunt, and Wilderness Adventure etc.

With objectives and outcomes agreed in advance and full involvement of participants in an open session at the beginning, we are be able to design a programme for a team away day or corporate retreat that achieves the ideal mix of communication, strategy and learning that will take your team to a higher level of performance.

Outcomes should include well-formed teams with shared goals and values, congruent with those of both individual members and the organisation, and individuals with new transferable skills.
