“A good team needs three things: the right people, the right spirit, and a couple of inside jokes.”
Too true, a great corporate team is made up of the best people for the job, a spirit of collaboration, encouragement and positivity and yes, a sense of humour that connects every member of the team.
But what happens when your team of excellent people is running low on spirit and their sense of humour has been strained by tough deadlines, or tougher yet, a shortage of projects coming in?
“Everything negative – pressure, challenges – is all an opportunity for me to rise.” -Kobe Bryant
Those low team moments are an opportunity for a breakthrough and a 180 degree turn-around that your team will speak of for years to come.
So where to find this moment of inspiration? Where is a team-builder that will bring lasting change to my team?
Head to a Forest for a Powerful Turning Point
“In the middle of our walk of life, I found myself within a forest dark, for the straightforward pathway had been lost.” -Dante, The Divine Comedy
Jungian Psychologists believe that a dark forest is a powerful symbol of the challenges we face in life. In the dark forest we face our fears and journey though them.
From Little Red Riding Hood to Frodo in Lord of the Rings, we have been reminded of this powerful symbol. We celebrate with these characters when they come out of the other side as victors, and wish we could go on the same adventure.
Step into a brave Forest Adventure with Acrobranch.
Take your team on a journey of self-discovery as they move through daring challenges high above the trees of the Acrobranch Courses, deep in forests. There is no more daring team-builder than one that sets your team right in Mother Nature and challenges them to take her on.
“Courage is grace under pressure” – Ernest Hemingway
Acrobranch courses take your team on various courses – some will truly test their ability to focus on a task, work together and conquer their fears. Book your team in for a team-building activity in the trees, like the Hunting Lions Course in our Johannesburg Acrobranch – with its 9 metre platforms. Or bring your team to try the thrilling Green & Blue Course in Cape Town with its Rope Bridge and Criss Cross Tangle. Acrobranch’s first fully adult park recently opened in Pretoria North, so book in there for the ultimate thrill.
Team building for every member of your team
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”. – Franklin D. Roosevelt
If you’re already thinking of that team member who suffers from vertigo just standing up, then Acrobranch has tamer outdoor adventure options so that your whole team can join in with the team-builder, without the fear.
Try the Long John Silver or Jack Sparrow course at Centurion Acrobranch for a course with a choice of zip lines or simple courses that are just 4 metres off the ground. Or book your team-builder in Cape Town with the Yellow Course and its simple 60m zip line combined with ranges of fun activities in the trees.
We guide you through a memorable and rewarding day of activities, teamwork, and challenges and above all, fun. Chat to us about crafting a day that will both challenge and delight your team.
