Agenda & Activities
Team Inventory Survey (10 minutes) Before the pro- gram, each participant will evaluate the team’s attributes and blind spots.
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 (10-15 minutes) The Atlanta Challenge facilitator welcomes the group and sets expectations for the workshop, then leads fun activities that break the ice and help get everyone involved.
Intro Teamwork Challenge (20-30 minutes) We jump right into the program with a thought-provoking team activity that requires ideas and input from the entire group to solve. This gets the group thinking about what they want from the program and how to work together more effectively.
Thinking Styles Exercise (30-45 minutes) This is an interactive learning game where participants gain valuable insights into their own thinking preferences and how to appreciate and utilize the styles of their teammates. Understanding everyone’s strengths is essential to working together effectively.
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 elements, and how to bring them all together to be an unstoppable team.
Pressure Cooker (30 minutes) Small teams come up with a list of specific situations in the workplace that they would like to improve. The team then brainstorms various solutions to these challenges using the whole-brain format to ensure a wide variety of actionable ideas.
Final Teamwork Challenge (30 minutes) These hands-on activities are designed to act as trust-building activities and help your team utilize their new understanding of “whole-brain” thinking and apply those lessons to make the team more effective. Many exercises are available based on the specific needs of your team.
Wrap-up (5 minutes) The team shares lessons learned and what they want to focus on going forward.
Post-event Leader Consult (20-30 minutes) The program facilitator will talk with the team leader to share insights about the group and suggestions for keeping the momentum after the workshop.
Virtual Group Follow-up (45-60 minutes) Approximately one month after the event, your facilitator will host a virtual follow-up session to review key concepts, answer questions, discuss best practices, and assist with creating action plans.
