Pre-event Consult (30 minutes) The team leader and the facilitator review the group information and align on outcomes to ensure a successful program.
Welcome & Warm-Ups (10 minutes) Atlanta Challenge staff welcome participants and set expectations and ground rules for the day’s events. We then lead fun warm -up activities that break the ice and get the group physically and emotionally involved.
Intro Teamwork Challenge (10-20 minutes) We jump right into the program with a thought-provoking team activity that focuses on the team’s current interactions. This helps the group see and understand what is going on, how it impacts the team, and how important it is to address those issues.
The Teamwork Compass® (15-20 minutes) We lead an interactive conversation about the key ingredients of teamwork, how different team members have a stronger affinity for some of those ingredients, and how to bring them all together to be a healthy team. We use this metaphor throughout the program to increase familiarity with this powerful tool and create a culture of success.
