How can your team get to the sweet spot where their intention, creativity and effectiveness come together? This team building session uses collaborative art, an aspect of creative learning, as a means to getting your team to that place, and it works 100% of the time.
Arts-based learning (“ABL”) is a dynamic and emerging technique used by at least 400 of the Fortune 500 companies. The learning incorporates the arts into strategic planning, teambuilding, communication training, leadership development, problem solving, innovation, as well as, individual and team coaching. It fosters creative thinking, promotes the development of new leadership models, and strengthens employee skills in critical areas such as collaboration, conflict resolution, change management, merger and acquisition execution and cross-cultural communication. Rather than replacing conventional management and/or organizational learning methods, ABL effectively complements rational ways of learning by combining right-brained imagination with left-brain logic to develop trust, find shared values, shift perceptions and develop high-performance teamwork.
During this experiential team workshop, certified coaches facilitate team building through the medium of collaborative art. Each team is placed into groups of 3-5 and will create a suggested work of art together. Once completed, the coaches will process the experience with the team and team members will have an opportunity to share and reflect on their experience. The process of working together creatively not only breaks down barriers, it also yields a tangible reference on canvas of their team building experience to bring back to the office, which they share with co-workers, leadership, family and friends. The outcomes of these results-oriented sessions cover the walls of many corporate boardrooms and offices.
