Developing Your Team Skills

Effective team performances

Every team is made up of individuals with a variety of skills and aspirations. To enable your team to work effectively we have events and games which will utilise the skills of each team member and enhance the performance of the team as a whole.

Here are some of the events we can run for your team. However, this is not an exhaustive list; please speak to us if you want us to design a bespoke event.

Trouble at the top

Group size: 8 +
One or half day event

This event has been designed with managers in mind. The activities are used to highlight the importance of the five core management skills:

  • Leadership
  • Problem Solving
  • Teamwork
  • Communication
  • Collaboration

Each activity will include some de-brief time, where delegates can discuss any personal learning.

This package can be organised as a one or half day event. The games can also be run individually, if required.

To run as a one day event, select four games from the list. We can also run it as a half day event by selecting two of the activities.
We are happy to discuss alternative activities, please ask.

The product launch

One or half day event
Group size: 12+

This event has been designed to draw on the creativity, innovation and problem solving skills of your team.

The Product
In the one day event, the first part of the day is dedicated to making the product, which can be anything from a clothing range to a car, or even a structure. The teams make the product based on a specific client brief.

Develop problem solving skills

The Marketing Campaign
The second part of the day is dedicated to marketing the product. Each team has to produce both a poster and TV advertising campaign.

For the finale, both the product and marketing campaigns will be assessed by a panel of judges, with separate awards being given for creativity, innovation, and impact.

To run as a half day event, The Product or Marketing Campaign can be run separately. You could even select one of your company’s products to be the subject of a marketing campaign.


The Product Launch

Play in a day

For this event you will produce a ‘Play in a Day’ based on the theme of your choice. This can be anything of from change to project management. We will work with participants to interrogate what their theme means to your team and organisation and work towards producing a 10 – 15 minute performance.

In partnership with MORE! Productions

Specific team skills will be developed through engagement in the process of making the ‘Play in a Day’, i.e. collaboration, communication, leadership and time management as well as the ability to be productive under pressure.

Raising awareness of the theme in question will be achieved through the final performance.
