Corporate Team Building
Strong and productive teams don’t happen by chance. They require the right blend of skills from leaders and employees alike. Call of the Wild use an experiential team building model to illustrate the various stages that teams go through to achieve successful outcomes. We aim to maximise the effectiveness of both the team and the individual within the workplace through creating tailor-made team building activity programmes and corporate fun events.

Each team building or team development course is tailored to your specific needs – matching content to specified outcomes. We don’t impose solutions, rather we build bespoke solutions which blend programmes with our specialised team development methodology. We ascertain whether it is team building or teamworking skills that need to be improved. They are not the same.When combined with expert feedback and facilitation from our trainers, this creates a powerful method of transferring learning back to the workplace.

10 Reasons Why Companies and Organisations Come To Us
We highlight how a team can co-operate in such a way that it acheives more than the sum total of its individuals.
We help them to:
- Improve communication.
- Address tensions, raise morale or increase motivation.
- Raise their level of performance
- Become united by a common purpose
- Develop their people skills for working with others.
- Gain right team leadership skills
- Focus on team goals and how to achieve them
- Clarify team roles
- Review what they are doing
- Have fun
Businesses often come to us when new teams are brought together so that they can develop goals and identify team strengths and differences. Or it may simply be that the team has achieved their goals and the organisation is looking to reward them. We all know that it is important to reward success in order to motivate staff. We have experience of arranging such events for clients across the UK. Take a look at some of our case studies such as Innogy, ERM and Remington.
Maximising your Return on Investment (ROI) through lasting Team Building Results
Our philosophy is that through cost effective team building programmes we can help your organisation facilitate long lasting behaviourial change in the workplace. This, we believe, is the only way of delivering a measurable return on your investment. This is fundamental in the current economic climate.
The “I do” philosophy is the one we adopt. Through experiential learning we have found that knowledge retention is far greater than using traditional classroom methods alone.
Team Building Solutions
There are a number of areas where our team building and team development programmes can help your business. Here are some of the solutions that we have helped clients bring about:
- Effective communication and listening
- Trust within the team
- Goal setting
- Shared responsibility
- The value of review
As far as we’re concerned the ideal situation is one where the team can function as a single unit demonstrating competence in specific areas, such as those described above, and have a fluid leadership structure, where individual team roles are flexible and changed to meet the need of the group.
In addition, if you’re looking for accreditation we can help you work towards a qualification from the Institute of Leadership and Management. We also practice what we preach in that we hold the Investors in People Quality Standard for developing our own staff.
