RESIDENTIAL TEAM BUILDING & TEAM DEVELOPMENT EXPERIENCES
Below are some kind open comments from a GP who invested in a bespoke
residential team building event in the Peak National Park with us to help him
to gel together a varied aged and mixed fitness group of receptionists, doctors,
district nurses, social workers and clerical support colleagues working in a
newly modernised & enlarged doctors' medical centre in South Yorkshire : -
" Dear Iain,
Without exception we all enjoyed our few days with you,
although beforehand many of the staff were wary about
going away with management and the "physical" side of
the programme. Most people were really proud of themselves
afterwards though - things they thought they'd never be
capable of doing such as the cave exercises and the
abseiling exercise. We've been passing around loads
of photos subsequently - much to everyone's amusement."
"The staff found the small group discussion into changing
the practice very useful and thanks to you everybody felt
able to open up and say what they wanted to say without
fear or any embarrassment. Since we've got back there's
been enthusiasm for the follow up meetings even amongst
what were some of the most reactionary of our group
members. Time will tell ! However I have noticed that
far more people are contributing to discussions and are
volunteering to take on new responsibilities as a result
of the event with your organisation, which was one of
the aims you elicited from me when we met together to
discuss the aims before we booked the event. Thanks again
for the training course, it was more successful than we
all expected and you'll be pleased to know we're already
planning the next one !"

" We take great pride in the positive feedback & kind overviews
following detailed benchmarking and evaluation of each one of
our serious training courses. Training here is lots of FUN but it
goes almost without saying, however, that the success of such
events is largely down to the people involved putting in a lot of
hard work - and in particular people such as Dr Hardy working
closely beforehand with folks here such as me and Caroline
Jennings to make sure that all the necessary groundwork is done
properly beforehand - especially in terms of objectives setting and
the establishment of kpi's and defining the scope of the project
within realistic limits of time and budget, and consulting and
briefing people effectively prior to the start of each event and
so on. This involves a lot of work & planning - which takes up
time and which is why our training process isn't the cheapest out
there in the market place, but it does work time after time if our
TQM procedures are followed carefully by our clients and our
team here at Rock Lea.
Setting up a training programme that will work right first time
is something we have a lot of experience of doing here built
up over 20 years of designing and running and benchmarking
tailored course. It's not rocket science but it is something
we're good at - and most important of all it's something our
customers know we're good at...which is our website is full
of no end of very complimentary comments and endorsements.
Some of the best events we've ever run have been set up a
fairly short notice but without exception all the hundreds of
projects we've run over the years that have worked exceptionally
well have ALL taken three or four days to run and twice that
time to set up and get ready for.
If you are looking for a similar event for your own team which
has serious desired outcomes and if are prepared to work
alongside us to make sure it all goes well, then we'll be delighted
to hear from you."
"It's rocket science Jim but not as we know it !"
