Team Building

Team Building

THE GOAL OF THE NEW “TEAM BUILDING” PARADIGM

Create an environment where employees from all levels of your organization work in a creative and controlled environment to Learn…Share…Collaborate…SUCCEED.

A UNIQUE APPROACH

Too many companies wrongly believe that team building is nothing more than allowing people to develop relationships and compete to win a prize.  There is much research to the contrary, however, this is how it has always been done, it’s easy, and there is no accountability for long term change.

ECG’s facilitated team building activities encourage the sharing of knowledge, experiences, successes, and failures that will awaken a Corporate Entrepreneurial spirit that will change the way you do business!  The activities are not traditional team building activities.  Our team building takes place in a conference room or larger venue where we create teams from various departments that will solve real problems, create real process improvements, and make real change in your culture.  We make it fun, we make it interesting, we make it relevant to your company and the employees.

Enterprises have a strategic imperative to innovate, or risk disappearing.    With distributed teams, travel costs increasing, digitizing of our processes, legacy systems, and the need to accommodate a workforce made up of traditionalists through millennials… team building must create lasting change that supports a company’s requirement to achieve stated initiatives.

Our unique approach… is based on the S.M.A.R.T. framework.  We incorporate fun, while utilizing a variety of proven tools to help achieve real goals, such as: achieving your strategic imperative to innovate, improve efficiency, gain market-share, increase profit, attract/retain talent, and more. Entrepreneurialway Consulting Group’s (ECG) team building approach will produce measurable, quantifiable results.

Post-event analysis– Our facilitator will produce a detailed findings and recommendations.  These findings will be included in a post-event finding document, as well as during a 1-hour (video) post event discussion with your identified management team.

CONCLUSION

Based upon three decades of participating in, as well as running team building events from attending sporting events to adult “big wheel” races, one thing became apparent…the value was short lived. 

These experiences, and 30 years of research and analysis of how corporations and entrepreneurial enterprises succeed, lead ECG to develop a Corporate Entrepreneurial Team Building concept built on the S.M.A.R.T. framework.  We then wrapped the whole concept in a mutual benefit philosophy to change the “Team Building” paradigm.

Whether you want your team building to produce innovation or process improvement around projects that are routine or mission critical, and/or cross organizational such as: Enterprise Technology Roll-out, Change Management, Business Process Re-engineering, Strategy Synthesis, Organizational Design & Alignment, Customer Advisory Board Engagement, Enterprise Risk Management, Sales Processes and Training, etc.), ECG’s “Corporate Entrepreneurial” Team building delivers the results you’ve been looking for.
