Team Building Consulting – Is It For You?

I’ve got a secret to share with you.  Wildly Different doesn’t always implement the best team building events…sometimes we provide team building consulting, so your team can self-implement their own amazing events!

Would team building consulting benefit your organization? If the descriptions below apply to you, then the answer is “yes!”

You have a team that has the ability to self-implement an event.

Many who we do team building consulting for have the experience and know how to run events. We’ve worked with recreation departments at resorts, cruise ships and summer camps that have staff who can easily operate an activity.  Activities to entertain both leisure guests or team building events for corporate groups. We’ve also provided team building consulting for human resources departments and meeting planning teams looking for a DIY activity at their meeting or conference. If they have the ability to do so, why do they use a team building consulting firm? Read on…

You need an event quick and you don’t have the time to develop it.

What we hear a lot of from our clients that we do team building consulting for is they have the staff.  They have the ability.  But, what they don’t have is the time to create the event they need. We’re all doing more with less people, so don’t fret if this is you. You’re making the best use of your time by hiring someone who can create a fabulous team building event quickly and efficiently.  This way your time can be spent accomplishing your important day-to-day activities.

You want new offerings for your target market.

The next best reason we hear why people need team building consulting is that they need a fresh idea that will wow their guests. This reason actually goes hand-in-glove with the section above, if you ask me – time. It takes time to be creative.  So, if you have a lot on your plate it doesn’t mean you can’t come up with the unique idea.  You just don’t have time to focus on it! Another plus of using a team building consultant is perspective. Sometimes you’re too close to the “we’ve always done it this way” approach to come up with the next new thing.  If that’s the case, it’s smart to tap into an outside perspective.

Team building consulting puzzle sheets

We do more than create events for team building consulting – we create puzzle sheets as well!

You’re looking for something unique that you can’t buy “off-the-shelf.”

Sure, there are events you could buy or even “borrow” from other companies. But, do you want to be the same as everyone else? Or, do you want your guests to go, “Wow – that was something special?” When we do team building consulting, we weigh up what differentiates you from everyone else. That could include tying in what’s cool about your property and working it into the event.  Or, taking your company information and weaving it into the design of the activity.

Team building consulting clue

If you were a team building consulting firm, how would you use this as a hunt clue?

You need help with a high-tech event.

High-tech is everywhere these days.  But, if you’re not Bill Gates it may be overwhelming for you to figure out how to create your own signature high-tech event. In our team building consulting, we partner with MobileXpeditions to produce iPad games, as well as games that can be accessed through participants’ own smart devices. These events won’t break the bank.  In fact, they turn out to be more cost-effective over time.  That’s because you produce them once and can deliver them again and again without incurring printing charges, buying event equipment, etc. And, the beautiful thing is, our games aren’t accessed through an app.  They’re housed in loaner iPads or accessed through a website. This means your guests won’t be put off by having to download a strange app.  Nor do you have to worry about getting approval from Apple for your app – a long and expensive process that could end up with Apple not granting permission for your app at all.

We’ve had the pleasure of doing team building consulting all over the globe – Copenhagen, the Bahamas, on the high seas, around the US and now we can add Dubai to our list! We had a wonderful time exploring Atlantis, The Palm to come up with two different hunts they can host for companies looking for a unique way to experience their stunning property and water park. And, we got to take in a camel ride, sand dune 4×4 “surfing” and a fabulous tour of both Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Our opinion? If you get a chance to go to Dubai, don’t hesitate! It’s a wildly wonderful place!
