Marketing Firm Builds Stronger Team Rapport
The Global Brand Practice Team asked us to work with them to create a day-long experiential learning program. They wanted to address building a better understanding of the teams individual preferences while increasing their ability to assemble quickly and perform for clients. They considered this an opportunity to practice sharing resources, a skill that needed to be maximized. Our client wanted us to use an outdoor venue for at least half of the day.
The MBTI instrument was distributed in advance to team members and completed electronically. We began the day with a condensed MBTI session to review the composite team type and to help the group better understand each persons unique preferences. We then traveled to a nearby ranch for Pursuit. We customized the program to encourage collaboration and the sharing of best practices while increasing the understanding of individual preferences.
In addition, team members were transferred from one team to another to simulate this groups constant challenge of receiving and losing team members on project teams.The final group debrief was co-facilitated by AAI and the internal trainer to create action steps for improvement.
All teams contributed to an electronic version of Learning and Commitments that is being used to address accountability for increased team effectiveness.
