"I want to thank you again for setting us up for an amazing meeting. Our national sales meeting was a huge success (the best meeting ever is what I am hearing), and the first day set the tone. Everyone was asking me if you had a teleprompter since you were right on with the messages that we wanted our Sales reps to hear. If you decide to go into Biotech sales, let me know!  We even had a few guests from Sanofi Head Office attending who were also impressed with the Drum Café."

DrumStick Cafe
Team Bonding Activities | fun team building activities |Team Building Texas | Team Building Louisiana
A powerful rhythm-based experience that’s also logistically easy to implement and lower on the ‘decibels’, this program delivers serious results from an exercise as foundational to development as a child’s game of  ‘Pat-a-Cake’!   In adult learning, when you have multiple pairs of ‘Pat-a-Cake’rs who all have to be in sequence with another intellectually and physically in simultaneous fashion, it is quickly apparent when and where breakdown happens and a team falls out of rhythm.   But the value comes when we learn about the group dynamics involved in communicating to solve problems, resolve the conflict or breakdown, and achieve or return to high performance without the crippling risk of disengagement.
Promotes
Most predominantly used for Corporate groups, particularly in management training and development, or with individuals who are responsible for building and maintaining high-performance teams, especially for those programs dominated by those new to having direct reports or have been identified as high-potential talent.   Spans of control may be large or small and even those with several years experience in talent management will benefit from this unique program.  
Great for
High-Performance Teamwork, Enhanced Communication, Problem Solving, Creativity, and Conflict Resolution.
