The New Earth: A Team Building Program

The New Earth: A Team Building Program

Objective /Benefits


If team building and other offsite events are to offer value, their inclusion in an overall corporate structure of philosophies, values and practices is critical. 
The New Earth is about the process of supporting a work group to operate in a team-oriented environment that is characterized by such philosophies as shared purpose, shared values, shared vision, shared mission and a performance development system that enables people to grow both personally and professionally. It is ideal for organizations with a high mix of seniority in age, experience and competency.
This program is designed to give participants a distinct advantage over other organizations that don’t believe in Team Power and Transformation. The program creates awareness for teamwork and has participants devoted to achieving self- empowerment as individuals and as a team to reach new heights and create new paradigms in working relationships.

The New Earth focuses on the following areas:
•    Business core values
•    Relationship building
•    Communication
•    Leadership
•    Collaboration


After completing the training, you should be able to:
•    Build effective leadership practices
•    Focus on team goals and not just individual goals
•    Maximize the effectiveness of every team member in an organization
•    Build and strengthen supportive relationships with professionalism 
•    Solve problems creatively and make decisions effectively


To change your direction, shift your thinking.
However long ago you learnt to ride a bicycle, it’s likely an experience you’ve never forgotten. The skill remains with you today. When was your last corporate training program? How much of what was learnt is actively applied in your business today? Are all that remains the workshop manuals left on your shelf? 
Our programs are initiatives that last. They encourage new ways of thinking. They open up ways to create extraordinary achievements. We believe individual behavior and attitude contribute significantly to the overall excellence of your organization. So we focus on what really matters.

Our unique methodology of combining experiential, instructional and discovery learning, and supported by modern coaching technology, creates powerful shifts in attitudes and behavior that will encourage sustainable change in your organization. These changes make an impact on results where it matters.

In our programs, you can expect an extensive use of case studies, debriefing, dyads, facilitated coaching, feedback, games and activities, group discussions, lectures, psychodramas, simulations, story-telling and structured instruments.
