Performitive Team-Building (1 & 2 Day Programs)
We use an arts-based approach with an eye to critical 21st century skills in our Team-Building designs, with the intention to develop these skills within a framework that is interactive, kinesthetic and fun.
Participants engage in a series of micro-challenges, each focused on a different aspect of their 21st Century skill portfolio, before culminating in a team arts project that is shared over a completion meal or ceremony.
- Managing Communications within a team
- Creative and Innovative thinking
- Demonstrating agility with change
- Practicing the collaborative spirit
- Participants will emerge from the programme energized, excited, and more connected to each other and the skills they need to maintain team connectedness and viability.

Understanding the fundamental keys to a person’s behavior is critical in the 21st century global marketplace. When working with companies and individuals from geographically distance areas, one particularly fruitful area is learning to recognize behaviours formed through culture: cultural intelligence.
This area of focus is geared towards helping organizational HR or individuals to identify the keys to a more productive, purposeful, masterful and mindful work experience.
This explosive area of research has introduced some startlingly effective conclusions for the 21st century workforce. Drawing from intrinsic vs extrinsic motivation, this workshop helps managers recognize the keys for drawing out the best performance from their team, and it can be used by individuals to self-motivate for life-, work- and personal goals.
One of the most stable and reliable personality profile systems, DISC is the starting point for any HR that wishes to better understand the dynamics of their staff.
Based on psycho-social research, Strengths Finder employs a ‘positivistic’ approach to personality profiling. Focussing on a person’s strengths, it provides tools for manipulating those strengths such that they can be used for all situations.
This profiling system relies on the individual’s determination to explore the qualities – ‘virtues’ – that make a person morally and ethically well-rounded. Through activities, discussion and reflection, this secular programme permits participants let go of pre-conceptions, and embrace the possibilities within themselves
Motivation, Goal-Setting, staying focused…are these areas of your life that seem to be out of your control? This workshop presents you research-based approaches that can help transform you from an observer to a participant and from a follower to a leader.
The 21st century has become a global environment increasingly strange and dangerous. Nations once considered safe places to move to or work in are in periods of transformation. ‘Understanding Americans’ gives the non-American, future worker or expatriot an opportunity to dig underneath the surface of the great American myth, and understand the deep underlying cultural and geographic fissures that divide this country. Through this workshop, you can better prepare yourself for the specific cultural values of your region, and avoid the trap of thinking tha the United States is homogenous.]
The End of Average
Are you Average? This workshop will not only confirm that you are not, it will show you how, through our love-affair with average, we have short-changed ourselves and our teams. This workshop will both demonstrate conclusively the limits of ‘average’ in measuring productivity, and it will introduce the new ‘science of the individual’ and how you can use it now.
