Teamwork PLAYshop

Some Teams We Have Played With!

Teamwork Makes The Dreamwork!

Summary:

Does your team lack the cohesion needed to maximize their potential?

The Teamwork PLAYshop is the ultimate team building workshop! It is truly the best of all worlds & focuses on the 4 fundamental keys to building successful teams: positivity, connection, communication & achievement.

Team Building Activities Toronto

For Teams That Are:

  • New & still getting to know each other
  • Reliant on strong teamwork to succeed
  • Stagnant or lack camaraderie

Used to:

  • Improve collaboration & strengthen team bonds
  • Enhance communication & problem solving skills
  • Set a positive team based culture for elevated success!

We use the power of PLAY to teach 'modern day business skills' with a focus on workplace wellness.

How It Works:

PLAYshops are fun, experiential & highly impactful! This team building workshop  can take place right in your office or at any locally scheduled event, conference, retreat, etc. All materials provided and teams of 8-200+ can be accommodated. There are 3 components to building a more cohesive team:

1. Group Games

Fun and interactive (improv-influenced) games that are designed to get teams to break down barriers and learn about themselves and the group at large.

2. Positive Psychology

The research behind what makes life worth living and aims to discover and promote the factors that allow individuals and groups to thrive.

3. ‘Art-ivities’

Wacky and fun art based activities to bring it all together.  Dont worry….no artistic abilities necessary!
