What to note of team building in Kenya

Leadership ,team spirit,synergies,team building,team work,team dynamics,are all great names for team building in Kenya.Different companies also have diffrent approches to team building.We have in door training and  have out doors or experiential team buildings.We also do have seminars and workshops trainings. The tricky part is the organization to know what they want.Is it team building ,or semilar or workshops.

Though team building has different names in Kenya,there is no such thing like” drinking beer all night team building“.Team building is about working together ,outside the comfort zone and achieve resuilts. Rapids Camp offers a very suitable location for team building.

Point 1 Location

Team building cannot be effective if carried out at the work place,as some people have suggested before. It requires  a different enviroment and if possible very unique ground ,away from the normal.

Thats why Rapids Camp Sagana is a leading location for team building in Kenya. Change of location should be reflected on the faces of the team building folks. The location is  a catalyst by its self.

What you should never do?.

Never conduct a corporate team building in a primary or high school ground. The impact  is almost nil to the team due to the perception that this is a school not suitable for corporate team building.Please be very careful to get a nice location.Team building companies that offer team building with out a  proper location will not achieve much.

Actually team building is a location by itself. The location will set the theme before any Ice breakers,  then team building follows.

Point 2  Activities.

When doing team buiilding in Kenya ask yourself the question or ask what activities?.If there are no out door  activities or are only 2 to 3 activities then you should now have known the impact of such team buildings are almost nil. you require to  plan again.

Point 3 Acessability.

Acessability  is key to planning a team building event in Kenya.Rapids Camp is just only two hrs from Nairobi and very close to other major towns in Kenya ,like Nakuru,Meru ,Embu, Thika, Nanyuki,Machakos ! If you will use half of the time on road to reach your team building destination then that is a well not thought out  program.

Point 4 Budget.

Very expensive team buildings in Kenya, or very cheap one sometime do not achieve much. They may a have some impact on the team ,but that doesnt mean that the whole purpose of holding a team building training will be successful. Cost effective team buildings are measured by the the number of activities and the costs in total to achieve the objectives. Be careful and look at list of activities that may be involved.Activities like rafting in Sagana,Canoeing,plunge ,diving,stress free programs,camping ,river swims,Hippo route,bungee are all very unique and give the team an extra mile compared to usual ground workor drygrounds  team buildings in Kenya.


We also organize other team building programs

3.Family Games
