Wallis or Jura Vaudois
Half day- Day- Multiple days
Requires a bit of an adventurous attitude and a decent level of fitness
Mountain hut, Mountain hotel, tent
The mountains offer an excellent playground for several teambuilding exercises. Even without exercises your team will experience individual insights and team dynamics like never before.
Consider your team as a pack of wolves. They have to work together to survive (to be successful). The stronger members will need to support the ones who are less fit by literally taking some of their weight from their shoulders. (This is what will happen naturally and offers a very clear metaphor!)
Suggested exercises: Scavenger hunt with map and compass. Building a bridge over the river. Sharing a wild camping experience on the shore of a mountain lake or river. Making a fire. Swimming in ice-cold water (or just encouraging your team members). Paragliding. Building an igloo.
What’s for dinner?
Finding ingredients and preparing dinner could be an interesting exercise in itself…But we could also have dinner in a restaurant/mountain hut or having it prepared by our own chef!
“The trail was well balanced, which must have been a challenge taking into account our very diverse team, (also in terms of hiking experience). Really wonderful location, especially the mountain hut.”
“The coaching was needed and very positive: really supporting and driving the team dynamics/energies in the right direction.”
“The trail exceeded my expectations!”
“Normally in these nature team-building activities you see a soft-sports approach to fit all levels. This was not the case this time, I love that.”
“The hike was good, not too difficult but also not too easy, great nature experience and out-of standard routes.”
“What I really liked about the coaching was that you work in the area of phsycological safety and mindfulness, which is so refreshing in a work performance culture. I believe your approach is the right one.”
“Famke’s key strength is how she combines her great social skills with an in-depth knowledge of being in the outdoor and the mountains. This combination creates not only a strong feeling of safety in the group but also a great atmosphere of positivity and fun.”
