Advantia Head Office Team headed off to Coventry for a Team Building Day, on Friday 27th July. They were met by Tracey Willmott from Monkey’s to Manage who outlined their day that would teach them about themselves, their behaviour, about the impact that behaviour has on others and how to work with different behavioural types to get the most from the team.
The group were split into two teams and were given the challenge to build a construction from balloons that would hold one member of the team for 30 seconds. After much hilarity, several burst balloons and many metres of tape, both team successfully completed the challenge.
The remainder of the session was spent looking at individual profiles, where they sat within the team and identified the typical behaviour of that profile. The difficulty came when highlighting how other individuals saw that behaviour and how they identified with it. This was all done in a very practical and light-hearted manor but did made individuals think about the impact they had on others. This further led to everyone agreeing individual actions to take away from the session that would help not only the individual but also the team.
Beck Miller, Operations Director said, “it was a great day, enjoyed by all. It consisted of 90 per cent practical activity and only about 10 per cent theory, but the results it has delivered and the differences it has made to an already strong team have been noticeable.”
The team are looking forward to their follow-up session in October where they are confident they will be able to demonstrate the positive impact the day had and the measurable difference it has made.
