The client asked Garlands Corporate to design a two-day team development session that would strengthen the workforce and bring the company closer together. With the focus on three of their key values of Passion, Inspire and Drive, they needed the team to further understand their vision.
Design and Delivery
The first day focused on three different themes; vision, teamwork and coaching. Each theme was introduced by a facilitator at the start of every session, along with any models or theories that were used by Britvic.
The aim was to develop a common understanding, commitment and engagement in realising the team’s vision – where they wanted and needed to be at the end of the day and how they would get there. Teamwork encouraged everyone to work to their strengths, communicate effectively and bring out the drive and ambition they needed to reach their goals. Coaching focused on improving each attendee’s personal performance and gave them support where needed when outside of their comfort zones.
The second day consisted of three creative, interactive and engaging discussion zones. This began with an initial creative briefing from a senior team member, designed to inspire and motivate the other delegates into action. The teams were then set to work with the facilitators to focus on how the activities from day one would enable them to convert their learning into the workplace.
The delegates really benefited from this intensive, two-day corporate team development session. They were able to express their creativity and have a lot of fun on the first day. On day two, they explored what they had learned about themselves, their colleagues and the company, and defined ways to create a more focused team with a single vision.
“A great experience; it was a really fun way to interact with colleagues and insightful way to get better understanding my development areas as well as some of my strengths.”
