Team Development vs Team Building
Business and Government clients alike are seeking greater impact and justification from team-based programmes, off-sites and team building events.
When chasing actual results, it is critical to discriminate between a 'team building' activity that may serve as a one-off event solution, and a true 'team development, programme.
The former can be purely fun and theme based, whereas the latter must address the true team development process from a well thought out and evidence based platform.
Fortunately Sabre can draw from both ends of this spectrum as required to address both team building in the event sense and team development in the true sense of that term.
