WORKSHOP, SEMINAR AND COURSE DESCRIPTIONS
The TEAMBUILDING SERIES
A 7-part Workshop Series:
- Workshop 1:
A series of group games help participants to get to know
each other on a much deeper level, practice working together
in teams, play and have fun together, and develop a deeper
level of intimacy. By the time they have completed this
workshop, participants invariably will have a greater
understanding of their fellow participants (teammates),
a greater appreciation for who they are, and will have
lifted those limitations which keep them for sharing and
communicating at closer levels, especially in the course
- Workshop 2:
Building Trust and
Respect in Relationships
This workshop draws heavily from great mentors in the field
of personal growth. In using the metaphor of the emotional
bank account of trust between two people, participants learn
how they can make deposits or withdrawals to each other’s
trust account, thereby developing a respectful relationship
with one another.
- Workshop 3:
We tend to listen autobiographically, and to respond in
one of four ways: we evaluate (either agree or disagree),
we probe (ask questions from our own frame of reference),
we advise (give counsel based on our own experiences), or
we interpret (try to figure people out, explain their motives,
their behavior, based on our own motives and behavior). This
keeps us from really understanding, and from building trust
in our listener, thereby stifling the communication.
To really understand fully, we must practice empathic
listening, hearing with both the intuition and the heart,
and without judgment or analysis. This workshop helps us to do that.
- Workshop 4: Goal Setting and Purpose
Achieving success is tied to vision and purpose--setting
goals and working to achieve them. This workshop encourages
participants to take off the limitations and to dream of
what’s possible… and from there, to take steps to identify
their own life purpose, and set goals to achieve it. Positive
Thinking and the Law of Attraction are cornerstones of this process.
- Workshop 5: Personal Growth Through
Building Self Esteem
In order to grow, we must discover new dimensions of ourselves
in relation to others. This workshop engages participants
in enjoyable and effective ways to discover more about who
they are, how they think and what they are capable of.
Active exercises of self-discovery build a sense of purpose,
and develop effective communication skills. The concepts
and activities are easy to pass on to students, as well.
- Workshop 6:
Identifying unrelieved stress and being aware of its
effect on our lives is not sufficient for reducing its
harmful effects. Just as there are many sources of stress,
there are many possibilities for its management. However,
all require work toward change: changing the source of
stress and/or changing your reaction to it. How do you
proceed? This workshop shows how.
- Workshop 7: No Blame, No Judgment
Working together as a team ultimately presents challenges
which must be overcome, and problems which must be solved.
Group and organizational problems are almost invariably
systemic, related to a breakdown in the system, rather
than personal failure. One of the death knells of a team
is the tendency of its members to cast blame on others
when things go wrong, rather than changing the system to
solve the problem, which is a far more impersonal,
non-judgmental response, and has a much better probability
of actually creating the result needed. This workshop helps
to develop the sense of non-judgmentalism in participants
This program design is very flexible and can be altered
in many ways depending on the desired intent or focus
of the school, district, or business. For further contact
