What a fantastic day we had when we delivered our Drumming Team Building Challenge session for the Mid Counties Cooperative Society at the Honiley Court Hotel, in Warwickshire.
A big team of 60 managers came together to create rhythmic bliss with African Djembe drums, bass drums, frame drums, bells, wood blocks and giant African shakers! The result – an unforgettable sound! Watch the session here! The team building session was delivered in our ‘challenge’ session format, where the group split up into teams to devise their own unique composition to contribute to the final piece of drumming music.
Steve Rivers quotes:
“It is immensely satisfying to see the transition each group experiences from the first ‘bank canvas’ stage where nobody knows what to do; through to the final end result when all the ideas come together. In the process, staff get a golden opportunity to interact with others whom they may normally only interact with on a virtual 'email corresponding’ level. New strengths are also realised in this process as the normal company culture is transformed and normally shy team members shine out as new leaders. People are seen in an entirely new light which is good for team moral and hence good for business.”
The group gave us their feedback to the session by providing three words to describe how they felt – before and after the event. Here are some examples:
"Before - Full, Excited, Tired / After - Awake; Alive; Energised"
"Before - Can't wait wahoo! / After - Party time wahoooooo!"
"Before - Scared, worried, anxious / After - Warm, Thirsty,Happy"
"Before - hope I'm rhythmic / After - buzzin with rhythm"
"Before - I NEED CAFFIENE / After - great energy and sense of fun. Made me smile!"
"Before - I need a drink / After - Energised, happy, Seen the team in a New Light"
"Before – what’s going on / After – i want bongos for Christmas!"
Inspire and motivate your team; build a 'feel good factor' in your company!
