Drumming up Teamwork
Teamwork, in many ways, is musical by nature.
It requires just the right blend of rhythm, tone, harmony, listening, and just-in-time collaboration. Good teamwork can feel almost symphonic in its expression — and sometimes get downright jazzy when players start getting creative.
And as everyone knows, Teamwork Rocks!
On the other hand, the lack of teamwork sounds and feels like an amateur band. Chaotic, cacophonous, egocentric, painful — out of step and out of time.
That's why we offer Drumming Up Teamwork — an innovative and invigorating way to help:
Hands on, energizing, and fun, Drumming Up Teamwork is the perfect way to help groups and teams see and hear what it takes for real teamwork to manifest in the workplace.
In a supportive, non-judgmental setting, participants have a chance to feel what it's like to get into the same rhythm, experience the joyful result of a high level of cooperation with teammates, and form an instant community. Everyone gets to fully express themselves, and directly feel that "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts."
Because isn't it all about getting the timing right?
Drumming Up Teamwork is available
