All beginnings are difficult. But once you get going, things turn around and you make progress. Because in the end, even the at first sight long path ahead of you consists of small, individual steps. Just like at our raft building event.
At the beginning, the participants are facing the seemingly randomly set up material and with it the challenge to build a floating and load-bearing raft from scratch. Not as easy as you think, because there are no instructions whatsoever! Often enough, that is also the case in our everyday work life: An apparently unsolvable task has to be completed through cooperation with the entire team. While one team member is good at analyzing and planning, the other likes to do physical and craft work. What about the creative ones in your team They can contribute as well and design an artistic team sail for the new raft. Together, the team plans, consults, tinkers and builds.
And once all logs are tied together, the sail is set and the paddles are grasped, the team is ready to cast off! This suspenseful and exciting moment of the event guarantees for thrill, fun and an emotional relieve, when the built raft does not only swim, but when the team members can cruise across the water with it. However, a little team contest should not be forgotten: Who can paddle faster towards the finish line, which team has designed the most creative sail, which raft is the most stable?
Back onshore, you can top off this event with a rustic BBQ and cold drinks (optional)
