Why Innovation as teambuilding?

Fostering innovation in an organisation does not come about through hiring individual top performers, but through generating collaborative processes. As this is one of the conditions to innovate, what better way to design an innovation workshop, than as a teambuilding event..?

How is this innovation workshop different from other innovation training?

While writing her master’s thesis in Organization Development about the effects of this innovation workshop, Kim had to read up on the latest publications about organizational innovation, gaining insights about how it is generated and stimulated.
This workshop ties in with both cutting-edge academic research and with writer Dan Pink’s ideas about the application of right-brain skills as the new imperative to stay ahead in today’s competitive markets.

How is this teambuilding different from other outdoor activities?

While it is a thrill for a team to be confronted with external physical challenges, this workshop takes the participants on an inner journey with other kinds of challenges such as listening, the ability to be present and personal and collaborative expression. Instead of going outside for the thrill of adrenaline and expansion of the comfort zone, this journey is an inner one, connecting with feelings and meaning. For a team that has gone through this workshop, the impact is long-lasting and deep, truly bonding and expansive.
