Teambuilding Exercises with Learning Objectives
These are just a selection of some of the team building exercises that we can provide and A Day in the Country can focus on specific issues such as Trust Building, communication, problem-solving, and change management. All of our exercises encourage bonding and openness within a team as well as being great fun. We can provide indoor and outdoor exercises giving full flexibility regardless of the time of year.
The learning from the exercises can easily be transferred to the work place as team members recognise how individuals strength and weaknesses impact on work productivity as well as the natural team development process. Please let us know what issues you would like to focus on and we can tailor a day to suit.
