Being productive and taking ownership of work that is being accomplished. Being empathetic to those at the workplace. Strategic planning, as well as time management were also part of the agenda.
The first day started off with an ice-breaker to overcome any initial awkwardness, allowing for free and comfortable interaction. Post this, there were 5 activities planned till the end of the day and 4 for the following day. At the end of each activity, there was a debriefing session, where the team members would discuss the end result or their thoughts about it. There were debriefs at the end of both days, where the trainer would facilitate a discussion so that each member could share a couple of takeaways from the entire training program that they would implement at the workplace. The morning of the second day, the team trekked all the way to the highest point, and back, where they had another debrief session of the journey they made.
The team seemed a little nervous and confused but with more and more activities, they started to open and enjoy. By the end of the 2 days, the team was very involved and really got along with one another, very evident in their expressive body language and cheerful demeanour.
By the end of the training program, the team had truly come together and bonded. The team had developed an open channel for clear communication and were excited to collaborate with one another on activities. The collaborations were very successful as they emerged from activities victorious. There was a sense of team spirit and the members had learnt to deal with any misunderstandings among them through the training program, once again proving the benefits of hands-on, experiential learning.
