Team Building Events in Segovia
We have a Portfolio of +200 Events
The city of Segovia cuts a sharp silhouette against the terse blue of the Castilian sky, creating an image which as long ago as the 16th century struck onlookers as a ship of stone waiting for the waters of the two rivers Eresma and Clamores to rise sufficiently for it to set off across the Castilian plateau. Segovia is a city to be visited at leisure and which merits frequent return visits. Its artistic and architectural wealth, the ethereal quality of light that illuminates the lush greenery of the Eresma valley, are just some of the reasons it was declared a world heritage site in 1985 by UNESCO.
In Segovia, the beautiful old houses, Arabic facades, palaces and churches, turrets and trees all add their own brand of character and elegance. The old city centre is a maze of medieval squares from which visitors can marvel at views of surrounding mountains. Whatever time of year you visit Segovia, the surrounding countryside delights with its changing hues. In short, Segovia is a city well worth visiting and a marvellous place to run a team building event.
Learning By Doing
Well designed and well managed, a Team Building program is an excellent tool to energize work teams. Our team training programs are based on Experiential Learning (Learning by Doing) and create scenarios that place participants and teams in an unusual environment outside their comfort zone. The success of a team depends not so much on the talent, qualifications or intelligence of its members, but more on how the behaviour of each of its members is accommodated and complemented. If we try to list the ideal qualities of a manager we will realize that far too many of them are mutually exclusive: decisive and reflective, strong and assertive but sensitive to people’s feelings, a fluent communicator and a good listener and so on.
However, while probably no individual can combine all those often mutually incompatible characteristics, a team of individuals certainly can, and often does. This is why it is not the individual but the team that is the instrument of sustained and enduring success in management whether this is within an educational, sports or work context. A team can renew and regenerate itself, build up a store of shared and collectively owned experience, information and judgement. This store can be passed on as seniors depart and juniors arrive. And it can be in ten places at once.
