Venture to Grow!
Empowering Ventures approach to team building is actually quite simple while being powerful. One of the key components to building a team is to build relationship among the team. Partnering with EVI to intentionally set aside time and focus on relationships is an important way to accelerate unity among a team and place foundational building blocks for the future.
Do your leaders get the chance to show their potential, practice skills, or get feedback? Experiential learning activities allow leaders to experiment with their leadership style in a decreased learning timeline, while limiting consequences for failure in a safe environment. As this type of learning is taking place individuals are developing transferable skills.
Another key to learning is by having fun. Fun game-like activities followed by intentional group processing allows groups to realize their potential by uncovering themes like strength in diversity. The opportunity to share a common experience and transfer that experience back to their working environment can provide a short cut to communicating a shared vision.
