04Team Building Programs
Human-centred Tech meets Team Building
Our unique, neuroscience-based gamified Team Building program not only drives real behaviour change in the workplace but also improves team connection, communication, engagement, and effectiveness.
As many organisations plan their hybrid working and back-to-office strategies, leaders and teams are realising the need to reset, re-connect, adapt, and build new cultures and ways of working. Some people who have been hired during COVID lockdowns have never even met team members in person, so there are some fundamental team connection and culture challenges to work through.
Led by a real human, ideally in a face-to-face environment, our innovative, smartphone app gaming platform delivers a practical, experiential team development program founded on cutting-edge neuroscience research, as well as real-world human behaviour studies and psychology research. This program will bring teams together in a fun, but meaningful way. In a fun, psychologically safe environment, team members get to understand their individual strengths, blind spots, and development areas, as well as develop how they and the whole team operate as a connected group.
“The seemingly simple, fun team challenges are specifically designed to bring out nearly every positive and not-so-positive nuance of workplace team behaviour in a psychologically safe, non-threatening, fun environment.”
Maybe you and your team are looking for team building and a bit if a culture ‘reset’ to move forward as COVID restrictions melt away, and more structured hybrid/office-based work becomes the reality? Maybe you have new team members and want to redesign team connection, culture, and ways of working? Of course it can also be used to improve and develop existing strongly performing teams and take them to the next level.
How it works:
Observed by a deeply experienced Team Coach, teams compete in a series of fun, seemingly innocuous games (run through our smartphone app) that are specifically designed to engage, stretch, and challenge their thinking, communication, connection and cohesion, planning, prioritisation, and more. Teams can even compete against the clock and each other if appropriate (we listen to what you need and will advise you accordingly).
The seemingly simple, fun team challenges are specifically designed to bring out nearly every positive and not-so-positive nuance of workplace team behaviour in a psychologically safe, non-threatening, fun environment.
The Team Coach observes the team in action, then skilfully and tactfully facilitates a team debrief to analyse and unpack the key learnings from the games, and more importantly what practical actions the team will take back in the workplace to be a stronger, more effective team.
The team then immediately applies those learnings and actions in a second set of slightly more challenging, but still fun games, again observed by the team coach. During this second set of games, the team immediately sees and experiences the direct impact of their behaviour change.
They form stronger neural learning pathways, which means the team will be motivated to embed the behaviours and take them back to the workplace.

“We had fun as a team but we learnt lots from it. Normally we do stuff & it’s not fun or we don’t work together, or we don’t get the learning from it, but this was brilliant, it did all of that, it did everything”

Why not add on: Team Strategy & Planning?
Complement the Team Building session with a facilitator-led Half-day Team Planning session.
This group session is led and facilitated by an expert Team Development Coach, based on Six Sigma Black Belt, LEAN and Design Thinking Methodologies as appropriate.
This session can be run face-to-face or virtually. Even for face-to-face sessions, we use state-of-the-art virtual collaboration tool, Mural, so the outcomes are still accessible afterwards wherever people work, in hybrid or remote environments (or, dare we say, another lockdown!).
