What to Expect
Drumming Around team building programs are designed to help companies and organizations step outside the box to explore new and creative ways of developing the communication and listening skills of its employees. The steps involved in successfully creating music together provide powerful synergy and enhanced camaraderie among the participants. This is no ordinary "talk and chalk" presentation. As the team goes through the process of playing music together, individuals develop a common language and develop communication skills at a deeper level that is possible with "regular" team building activities.
Through this fun and creative activity, participants are removed from the business environment and play together to create a musical experience that is greater than the individuals involved. This helps to deepen the feelings of "COMMUNITY" in the process. In a single program, this hands-on, interactive experience can achieve a team dynamic that participants will carry back to their everyday work environment and reap long lasting benefits for the employees and the employer.
