Team Building Events in Tenerife
We have a Portfolio of +200 Events
Tenerife Island has an amazing diversity of landscapes ranging from beaches to high mountain, dry and wet areas or almost wild settings in opposition to the more developed touristic towns. A scenario really suitable to celebrate a team building or spend a couple of days in an adventure travel, as Tenerife makes possible all types of activities: sailing, trekking, excursions on the inland forests (with such a rich flora that has attracted the best botanists throughout History), cultural stages like La Laguna (World Heritage) and Guanches Museum, or a climb to the Teide (Spanish highest peak) to relax afterwards on any paradise beach…
Furthermore, the wide offer in venues and accommodation ensures your event will be harboured on the right setting. You can add the Canarian charm, the 20-24 degrees on average during all year and the “papas arrugás” (typical spicy boiled potatoes) to the features mentioned before and you will come up to a fabulous and unique destination for your 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.
