Build Teams 10x Better
We are professional team building facilitators in the Philippines. Our aim is to help build better teams through new team learning experiences. We help organizations design gamified team building and development. We also help Philippine companies how to deliver fun and learning intensive outdoor and event-based team building programs. We cater a small group of 20 to large groups of 2000 participants.
Can team building improve our business?
Yes and no.
Let me first explain why many team building programs do not lead to the improvement of your business.
Team building cannot improve business when anchored on wrong beliefs.
1. There are those who believe that by having your teams compete in outdoor team building, they will make them more competitive -- and this will result to improved performance. This is not necessarily true.
Many organizations have very competitive employees who refuse to collaborate. In organizations where silos is a big issue, workplace competition can only be made worst by competition-based activities that produce few winners and many losers.
Playing highly competitive games, without careful planning, cannot make you get more business.
2. Many managers hope that team building can change the attitude and behavior of their employees. But they don't know how - and they don't know when. They don't have anything that will measure success.
Hope isn't a strategy. Don''t purchase a team building program when you are not clear how it will really change the behavior of your employees.
What should be done?
Our organization is here for you to be able to innovate and make more business. Business Innovation, our companies name, is also our promise.
It is no secret that engaged and empowered team members reflect positively on your business. They stay with the organization. They delight customers. People want to do business with them.
Our secret is in our process.
1. We begin with you, not in selling your games or team building facilities. We are your consultants and it is our mission to help you succeed and get team building solutions that really work.
2. We help you frame your challenges (including business challenges!).
3. We design team building solutions.
4. We help you execute your team building solutions.
5. We help you team members to new behaviors.
This process makes us better than most of the team building facilitators in the Philippines.
We would like to include team building during our off-site meeting. Can you help us?
Many of our programs are tailored to build a bridge from your overall meeting theme and/or objectives to the team building experience. From a couple of hours to multi-day team building programs, we will create an experience that augments the content of your off-site meeting and provides meaningful alignment to current business challenges.
How much do we need to invest in team building facilitation?
Unlike many training providers in the Philippines, we do not have a set per person cost for programs. Others set the cost per person because they are "selling to you" your use of facilities and games.
We are not a travel agency or events organizer.
We design and deliver team building programs that will work for your organization. You will pay us for our services, not for "packages".
Instead, each program's cost is determined after we discuss your specific requirements. Then, we send you an email describing programs and costs.
We have fee matrix that we reference relative to your group size, program length, materials, and staffing requirements.
We can do team building consulting for 20 as well as 2000 people. The more you are, the more competitive the price becomes. If we set fees per person, then the fee for 40 people is double that of twenty. It doesn't have to be.
Please read more so I can explain.
Different team building requirements require different number of facilitators, speakers, and staff.
For example, a conference may require only one speaker or dozens of facilitators. Some programs, especially outdoor experiences require one facilitator per 10 participants whereas an indoor team tournament may require only one facilitator per 30 persons.
The fewer the participants and the shorter the program, per person cost will be higher per hour than for larger groups and longer programs. That's because our service will begin not on the day of the team building but 7 to 14 days before that.
Team building providers who will charge per hour will naturally want you to spend longer hours for team building. Those who will charge you, 3000 pesos per person, will surely have a windfall when you are 100 or 1000.
Those who are earning commissions for finding you a team building facilitator and venue will naturally want you to pay more expensive fees. Not that they don't deserve it. That's just the fact of life.
We also work with events organizers and team building venues. Those companies who do not want to bother with events organizing will find their help useful.
And we choose to do what we are good at. We are the managers' choice for design and delivering excellent team building experiences.
In truth, the length of the program must be determined based on your business objectives, the availability of your participants, and the kind of team building programs.
The fee for half-day team building isn't one-half of a day of team building. Again, it takes us 7 to 14 days to design and develop materials for your workshop whether you want to hold it for two-hours, half-day, one day or three days. In short, we want you to achieve the same objectives for the shortest time possible.
We are cost conscious and competitive. We know where you are coming from. Unlike our "competitors who charge you 65,000 pesos for 20 persons (because they set cost of 3250 per person for at least 20 people), we charge a lot less.
Of course, those who are charging 3500 pesos per head are charging you within the bounds of reason.
Consider a public seminar. In the Philippines, you pay 4500 or more per person listening to a speaker. In a team building exercise, you can learn faster and better for you are learning with your team.
For example, you can learn more about effective communication in a team building exercise because it is experiential, more fun, and active. In a classroom, you pay 4500 per person for sitting silently and listening to a speaker. Team building provides 6x learning and 10x fun.
We aim to be your greatest value provider. Consider the return on investment. Our process and our work discipline ensure that you get the most value for every team building program.
Our team building programs our inexpensive when compared to those who deliver the same high quality of facilitation. But we never compete for price, only for results.
Contact us and we can give you rough estimates of how much you need to invest.
