Fun & Learn Experiences
In our team building we consider people learn best when going out of their comfort zone. That’s why we like to challenge them by giving them these opportunities. Once out of routine, we remain without the “tools” we were used to working with. And in lack of that, we are determined to find in ourselves new ones. So we become aware of our own abilities and we can use them on any new occasion!
Because we know that adults learn best by experimenting, our programs we offer in our team building programs, activities from simple, to intense, creative or complex.
We always make a parallel between what’s going on during our program and what’s going on in everyday workplace work. This is because our personality is relatively constant, regardless of where we are. Thus, the conclusions we reach from a team building program can be applied to future situations in everyday life, helping us to evolve.
We like to use specific theoretical aspects every time they help us: leadership theories, Belbin’s team roles, team development stages (Tuckman), JOHARI window, SWOT analysis and much more.
Team Building Leadership with Horses
Horses are the best teachers to learn leadership, because they are the best to follow.
“When we study what followers follow, we’ll find what the great leaders do to be successful!” Paul Hunting
Why horses? Because horses are animals that live in a group and naturally need a leader to follow. They are able to perceive even the smallest changes in the environment and react promptly to each of them.
Horses are sincere animals that do not know the position or title we have and cannot flatter us to get benefits. They react to us in exactly the same way that we present ourselves to them. So they mirror, pointing to us: “Look, so it is you, in the situation where you have to influence others”.
Analyses of teams.
Belbin studies has shown that the difference between success and failure within a team is not dependent on intellectual factors. It’s rather on behavioral factors.
Researchers grouped these conglomerates into 9 roles or sets of contributions made within a group: Plant, Monitor, Specialist, Shaper, Completer-Finisher, Resources Investigator, Team-worker, Coordinator.
A role in a team has been defined as “the tendency to behave, to make your contribution and to relate to others in a certain way.” Each of these nine roles has both strengths and “weaknesses”, being irreplaceable in successfully completing any team project from the starting point to the end point. So in a few words, Belbin’s philosophy is to make the most of individual differences and find the right place for each person within a team.
These roles identified by Belbin and his associates are widely used by thousands of companies around the world. By identifying these roles, we can use the individual strengths of each individual and manage the team better.
