TEAM BUILDING PROGRAMMES IN GREEN SPACE
Many of us spend most of our time sitting at a desk, looking at the computer screen. Very few jobs involve moving around any more, let alone being in or moving around in natural green spaces. Going for a walk, cycle ride, having a picnic or just lying in the grass in our local park or in the countryside can be deeply grounding and have a soothing effect on our well-being.
Green Space Coaching’s team building programmes tap into the energy of the outdoors to enhance team creativity, motivation and connection.
Karen’s commitment to enable personal and group learning through interaction with the natural environment produces workshop outcomes beyond other ‘Away Day’ approaches that I have experienced. Clare Joy, Organiclea
Purpose of team building programmes in green space: For a team of 8-12 people to spend quality time together as a team outside their normal physical work environment and routine to clarify the team’s purpose; to increase motivation and engagement.
– To get to know each other better and the role of each member of team.
– Hearing each other’s values, i.e. what’s important to each team member about their role.
– Exploring the teams sense of purpose and identifying possible emerging actions that the team would like to take forward and any blockages the team may deal with.
– To spend quality time outdoors in green space.
– To have fun together.
These team programs will be tailor-made depending on what the team wants to get out of a full /half day program. Preparation with the team leader/a team member is essential prior to the workshop.
I use the Natural Learning Cycle for team building and development workshops outdoors which taps into the natural human energy and flow of learning.
Rates: Please contact me for an initial complementary session to find out about your team’s requirements and needs and to discuss rates.
Possible locations: Victoria Park in East London, Regent’s park or Kenwood House in Hampstead Heath. These natural settings have indoor facilities so that a half day or day program can be held indoors as well as outdoors depending on the weather.
Residential Away Days: Together with my colleague Simon Hawtrey-Woore of Outside-In Consuluting, we offer residential away days at venues just outside London and located in beautiful natural settings.
