Our workshops develop interactive participation, encouraging initiative and a sense of achievement.

ROI: Consistent output via engaged and motivated employees.

Workshop outcome: Identify trigger points for motivation and use of skills. How, when and why.

The Story Of Delegate X - Measurable team building delivering value

Foreword:  Delegate X is long serving, loyal and a ‘doer’, however frequently complains about the same things and is sluggish in regard to change. He is frustrated and sometimes frustrating to manage.


The Workshop:  He attends the creative workshop for optimisation but doubts the relevance and his abilities. Firstly, he learns how to try, then how to simplify a challenging task.  Next he sharpens his senses and becomes more agile in his actions; he discovers, plays with ideas and innovates his solution and achieves a completed task.


The Measure:  A 25% increase in his perception was measured. The peak frequency of statements was observed during the task definition stage, which exceeded his fellow delegates by 46%.


The Result:  The company decided to adjust his role to be more customer facing, to make full use of his yet untapped skill.  Delegate X was able to ask the right questions to accurately define the customers need. This facilitated a project, which efficiently delivered the objectives.


Conclusion:  Through the simulation of change in the workshop, a stronger team evolved, empowered to embrace change.
