Low Ropes Course in the Trees
Challenge! cooperation! balance! problem-solving!
For All Groups. Corporate groups, new groups, old groups, young groups, sports teams, student groups, music groups, all groups! The outcome is better function, more accomplishment, deeper enjoyment of each other, and emergence with the healthy glow of outdoor activity, discovery, and rejuvenation while coming together as a team on the Ropes Course at the Colorado Mountain Ranch.
Corporate Return on Investment. When comanies invest in their employees, it contributes to worker satisfaction and retention and therefore gives return on the financial investment as well. Allowing the work team the opportunity to function together away from the usual hierarchy of the workplace allows for new leaders to emerge in ways worth noting. As these new leaders rise from within your organization, their knowledge and dedication to the company's mission and goals strengthens the core of the organization. Along the way, this saves the time, effort, and capital it takes to hire and train managers coming in from outside the organization.
Low Ropes Challenges. The Colorado Mountain Ranch features a traditional Low-ropes Teambuilding Challenge Course in the trees as well as portable field elements and initiatives. Enthusiastic professional facilitators enable a progressive experience in positive group dynamics.
First. Through a series of challenges, team members get to know each other and feel comfortable in the new setting with warm-ups and non-competitive games.
Second. Trust activities follow with introductions to safe spotting techniques and low initiatives, such as Circle of Friends, Human Knot, Teambuilding Trolleys, and Mountain Peaks.
Third. As the group begins to work together more smoothly in this scenario, the team moves into the course and from one challenge element to the next. First come the Exchange and All Aboard, and then on to the Peanut Butter Pit, the Family Tree, the Swinging Log, Spider Web, Triangle Traverse, the Mohawk, and finally the Teeter-Totter and the Up and Over.
More. Some higher-level problem-solving challenges may include Nitro Transport, Traffic Jam, Perspectives, River Crossing and the Keypunch Number Game.
The Take-Away. To introduce each element, the facilitator outlines the expectations, goals, and safety concerns. The group needs to assess, accept, and support individual strengths and weaknesses while making a plan and following through to the competion of each challenge. After each one, the facilitator inspires a lively discussion appraising performance, feelings, and ideas for translating the experience to benefit the team in their real day to day functioning.
And Beyond. When the Teambuilding Day ends, the group members move back into the world with newfound acceptance, comraderie, and functionality. These are rewards worth well beyond the investment, and there will be laughter and a splendid time along the way!
