These are sessions designed to evaluate how the group have participated in the other instructed activities that they will have completed. The group will review how they worked together, listened to each other and whether they could have made any improvements, whilst also identifying their own individual strengths and development during the task. These reviews can be run as part of a team development programme which we can plan and structure for your group’s needs.
Communication & Listening Skills
Being able to hear something, process it and formulate a favourable response in a short space of time. We’ve developed a range of activities where groups have to learn to communicate and listen to one another to ensure tasks can be completed successfully.
Working out a strategy to achieve the best outcome or solution to a problem. These activities teach children and young people how to evaluate a situation or task, plan a strategy of execution and then execute that strategy. Strategic planning, execution and reviewing stops them becoming frustrated and giving up too quickly.
We have a range of instructed activities that are designed to get groups working together through challenging team dynamics, they will have to work together to achieve certain tasks and challenges, developing listening skills, communication and trust within the group. They get a better understanding of their colleagues or classmates which aids development.
The ability to lead and support others through effective communication. Being a good leader isn’t about taking control and telling people what to do. Through our activity sessions groups learn it’s about good listening skills, clearly communicating with others and supporting team members when necessary.
Managing behaviour through outdoor activities. Getting active outdoors, running around and trying new activities not only helps let off steam, it can also aid concentration when back in the classroom or workplace.
Children and young people really come on in leaps and bounds on our residentials. Being away from home in a different environment, having to rely on their peers, trying new activities and finding their place within their group, gives a real boost to their confidence. They find skills they didn’t know they had.
Trust building activities help teams develop a level of understanding about their fellow group members and builds confidence in individuals as they learn to trust one another throughout their tasks.
