Description

Roping & Rigging Team Building activity provides a large scope for learning and team development. If you're looking for a challenging activity to help make a change in your workplace culture, this activity is for you.

Everything you need to know about Roping & Rigging Team Building activity

The team needs to work together to build the abseil systems and dispatch their team members in a supportive and safe manner, progressing from the 15m introduction/nursery, to the 40m overhang and concluding with 60m BIG wall finish.

What happens during Roping & Rigging Team Building activity

Teams can decide for themselves how the tasks are split or do all tasks together, or organisers can make the decision. The decision, and how the decision is made, will affect the desired learning outcomes.

Team members are required to learn the knots, which are needed to complete the roping system, prior to the day. Knots will be emailed to staff at least one week prior to the day. How the learning is split within the team, is up to the team, but ALL knots are needed to complete the rig successfully.

Managers/supervisors can be removed from their accustomed positions and placed into the care of their staff to observe the impact on team dynamic. Role reversals are a great tool to build empathy and appreciation for different roles within an organisation. Different learning styles are exposed and can be appreciated within a team. The managers/supervisors watching can learn how each of their staff learns and deals with a new experience. For those managers/supervisors that find it hard to let go, this is a valuable tool and creates a new perspective on workplace dynamics.

The abseiling rig will be checked and corrected by a qualified instructor. At all times during the process a qualified instructor will be present to oversee the safety of all participants.

The following are what participants will need to do in order to be successful:

  • Teams will have to work together in a cohesive manner to achieve a complex task that tests both individuals and the team as a whole.
  • Planning is an important component, with time management and assigning the right tasks according to each team members skill sets, whilst making sure all members are included, is essential.
  • Perceived and Real risks need to be identified and managed.
  • As well as recognising both individual and team strengths, whilst acknowledging and dealing with weakness in the team, is what this activity is in essence all about.
  • The team needs to recognise, that not completing the activity is not a failure, but that leaving any member of the team behind is.

A comprehensive debrief will be facilitated at the end of the activity. The most important part of team building, is the debrief. A good debrief will create many “AHA” moments and opportunities to improve the dynamic in a workplace. It requires special facilitation skills and probing questions to coach and empower the participants. A good debrief has 3 important elements:

  • It fosters ongoing discussion about the day
  • It focuses on what has been learned from the activity.
  • It sets the tone for applying the learnings in the future.

As well as the debrief, we will provide a follow up visit to check in on participants, a couple of weeks after the activity. A comprehensive briefing will also be given to all participants prior to the activity to address any concerns and identity specific desired learning outcomes and issues that exist within the team. This is something we will focus on during he activity and draw reference to if/when challenges arise.
