Using Theatre and Drama in corporate learning and development is not about creating actors but about giving people skills for life and business.
Taking improvisation techniques from the theatre and applying them within a business setting allows you to explore a wide range of issues.
In this age of self-directed and elearning, we believe there is still a need for the human factor in learning. The opportunity to learn in a safe environment and practice skills with others.
Whether you want to use it to explore themes such as Leadership, Impact and Personal Presence, Customer Service, Dealing with Difficult People, Presentation Skills, or other management issues, training with drama can be very effective by allowing people to experience new ways of thinking and behaving.
Musical Teambuilding feels so imeasurably rewarding, having been taken outside of our comfort zone, to take on an activity that we would happily convince ourself that we can’t do,and to succeed at it.
This is where we will induce creative thinking and introduce participants to problem solving techniques through musical exploration and improvisation.
These activities free the mind from pre-conceived ideas, allowing the imagination to run free, creating new concepts in a supportive atmosphere.
The instruments ( depending on the need ) range from guitar, keyboards, triangles, clappers, bongos, flutes, maracas, shakers, mouthorgans, etc.
Final result will be teams savouring the moment together and feeling more positive about their ability to conquer previously held fears and misconceptions.
Every worked with Ice ? Teams are divided and given an introduction before the activity begins. Now they would be given resources that are challenging as they fight the time-frame that melting ice brings before them!
This will have teams get creative, to learn to work together, listen to each other manage resources. What better way to get people working together than with trying to have them agree on a creative outcome and bringing it to life quickly!
It’s a fantastic test of team work, in a fun environment, doing something that is far away from everyday working life.
Teams participate to develop storyboards. Several aspects of the given theme are brought to life. Teams get creative, imaginative with clevery ( maybe cunningly ) captured moments and stitch together to showcase their work.
The short time pushes the team to get seriously involved, delegate, have fun at work and shed inhibitions. A unique and memorable way to showcase sense of humor and teamwork.
Here’s where the teams can test their innovative streaks. Can they use open and blank spaces and turn them around with creative use of resources and decorate and design furniture that meets the clients very specific requirements ?
High on fun and laughter, the activity will stimulate the team to work together, plan, manage resources and define roles.
A bomb has been placed inside a toxic waste zone that none of your teammates may enter. Your team must remove the bomb before it explodes and destroys the earth!!!

Teams have to build a bridge with engineering success and impressive design using the available resources as their construction materials. The purchase team will need to evaluate the costs for the raw materials and santion the purchase within the budgets.
Their goal is to build the strongest bridge with a truss pattern of their own design, while meeting the design criteria and constraints.
To design bridges, engineers perform careful analysis of bridge geometries and the anticipated applied loads that so they can determine the exact place of the reaction forces.
In this challenge, teams would be required to construct domino trails as creatively as possible. Given plastic dominoes and trigger mechanisms, each team must adhere to a pre-determined design to create their trail before adding a dash of flair and innovation to spice things up.
A single miscalculation can stop a domino in its tracks. Team precision is the key to success here.
Furthermore, during the grand finale, a show of mutual trust and alignment would be exhibited, as the entire ‘chain of events’ must be seamlessly executed without hiccups. The smallest contribution would make the biggest difference..
Fire eating was a common part of Hindu, Sadhu, and Fakir performances to show spiritual attainment. It became a part of the standard sideshow acts in the late 1880s.

Delicate resources are an intrinsic part this activity. Teams are given resources to create, build and experiment to make their launch without the satellite cracking.
