Building your corporate team around a clay pigeon shooting day is the ideal way to assess your staff and work on the attributes that make a group come together and work more effectively. Here are some of the methods, benefits and techniques to get your team building day in Derbyshire off to a flying start.
7 tips and benefits of a Clay Pigeon Shooting Team Building Day
1. Getting away from the workplace is the first stage of a successful team building experience. Taking your staff into the Derbyshire countryside for clay pigeon shooting sets the stage for the day and takes everyone away from their usual roles and behaviours within day to day working life.
2. Clay pigeon shooting is a great leveller – unlike some team day activities anyone and everyone can do this. Fitness and mobility are not an issue here; all participants have a sense of equality within this fully inclusive activity.
3. Being outside is great! Too much of our modern life is spent indoors and being in the fresh air surrounded by beautiful scenery and cooperating with colleagues in a positive environment really gets the endorphins flowing.
4. What are your outcomes? Defining the purpose of your day, whether it is a fun reward or something more serious like trying to gel merging departments will give the experience purpose and your group will gain more from it. Whatever you want to achieve from your team building day we can help you achieve it.
5. Clay pigeon shooting is a team activity. Throughout the day you will be working on communication, trust, procedures, goal setting and targets in both a literal and metaphorical sense. Your group will be aiming towards a greater sense of cooperation and the pathway to success under the guise of a fun competition in the great outdoors.
6. Clay pigeon shooting is an effective team building activity which fosters team spirit and boosts camaraderie amongst colleagues.
7. This activity can be tailored to suit any number of participants and businesses large and small. It is an investment in the most important asset to your business – your staff.
