Serious Team Building & Meeting Facilitation
Corporate Games, Inc. is in the business of Team Building, Training and Facilitation. This means that our facilitators can brief and thoroughly debrief our events. They are not just there to run and referee an entertaining game (unless that is what you want).
We offer "Team Assessment & Solution" sessions in advance of any of our team building events. Our facilitators provide a positive process for:
- Breaking down barriers
- Encouraging communication
- Starting the group problem solving and teamwork process, and
- Providing real solutions to teamwork obstacles and operational issues.
Teams will assess their own strengths and opportunities for improvement as well as provide concrete ideas for enhancing performance.
Our customized debriefing sessions are based on your input and allow you to do the debriefing in tandem with us for maximum benefit and impact. We do not know your company or your associates like you do, therefore we encourage your involvement in the debriefing process to make it much more meaningful.
Additionally, our debriefing sessions are interactive and require that participants take part in presenting their ideas on the meaning of the team building exercise. This insures that they are listening and involved-- and will learn and remember more than they would if someone were just giving a speech.
Many companies advertise that they do team building, when in fact they are just renting games or turning some form of entertainment into a group event. Real team building means using and enhancing the team skills that are required at work as well as getting to know your team members and learning to work more efficiently together.
The S.T.A.R Profile
This is a quick and fascinating way to find out about yourself and each of your team members. The S.T.A.R. profiler was developed at Corporate Games, Inc. to illustrate how people differ in terms of Styles and Tendencies, Abilities and Reactors (what motivates each individual). People discover some very interesting things about themselves and learn to appreciate the differences in other team members. S.T.A.R. identifies what makes each person unique and what talents each can offer the group. This is a great way to start a team building day, and/or a discussion about Diversity.
For teams that are interested in more in depth personality profiles, we have facilitators who are certified in providing and assessing the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).
We work with dysfunctional teams who have a history of ongoing problems and have not been able to find resolution. We have developed a program that addresses the concerns and attitudes of each team member. Each person is interviewed separately to ascertain their individual perspectives. We then bring the team together in open discussion. We teach new communication skills, including "active listening" and "effective ways to provide feedback." We encourage a "team mentality" by finding common ground and by prompting behavior and attitude shifts. This is a program that is monitored over a period of four months.
