Team Development

Looking for an inspiring team development event?  Want to test your colleagues in a new environment with an experience that will develop strengths and build on weakness?   We design one to multi-day team development events utilising our training centre on our estate and the surrounding Lake District hills and lakes.

Outdoor

The use of challenging and adventurous outdoor activities is a tried and tested method for embedding learning and applying development within a team.  Outdoor activities naturally push comfort zones as they introduce participants to new and challenging environments and our highly experienced facilitators guide teams utilising development tools, creating the ideal learning environment by combining the outdoors with classroom based time.  By using adventurous outdoor activities we will bring teams together through shared and motivating experiences that can then be transferred back to the work place.  

Onsite and indoor

For when outdoor activities do not suit the objectives we utilise our onsite facilities and training centre.  We will incorporate your companies’ ethos and culture to create a package specific to your teams and individual’s needs.  We appreciate that every group is different and requires a personal approach, and by utilising our activities and team development expertise we can design an event to your specifications.  

Event Design

In the build up to your event your lead facilitator will arrange a pre-event planning discussion to understand your team building objectives (this can be either in person on-site or over the telephone).  The exercises and projects we deliver will motivate your team taking a session from basic learning to embedded and enhanced learning with major beneficial individual and team development outcomes.  We incorporate the latest management, communication, team structuring and psychometric testing models within your event; professionally facilitated debriefing discussions take place after each activity and at the end of the team building pro­gramme.  During these discussions the learning outcomes are reinforced so that you can transfer them back to your workplace.

Our design fees start at £200+vat additional to the individual delegate fee which starts at £60+vat pp for a full day.  These packages are best suited for full day to multi day events when you are looking for maximum impact.  To ensure our facilitators have a valuable amount of time with your team to implement development tools we advise a minimum of a one day course.  This allows the team to consolidate learning on our activities as well as in a classroom environment to ensure maximum input. Where time and budget allow we suggest a 2 to 3 day event allowing our team to meet the group on the first evening and get the threads of the course running, linking into a full day with a final culmination in the evening or following morning.

Packages Include:

  • Event design, creation and delivery
  • Accommodation & catering where required
  • A wide range of outdoor activities & equipment
  • Professional facilitation
  • Post event consolidation & ongoing development
