1. WHAT CAN YOU DO FOR OUR GROUP?
Your first discussion with Sean will answer this. He offers a number of options to address your needs:
– An Engaging Teambuilding Speaker for Keynotes or Conference Sessions
– Powerful Private Executive Coaching to Develop Team Leaders
– Convenient and Impactful Two Hour Training Workshops to Boost Productivity
Sean will identify what event activities would be best to improve your team situation when we talk. It may honestly be that you are looking in the wrong place…
Your group’s specific situation and desired outcomes will determine the best program to help you get GREAT RESULTS! Sean knows that you may be curious about what to expect, so he has put together a description of a typical client journey that you can download.
2. WHAT ARE SOME SAMPLE ACTIVITIES YOU MIGHT USE?
The list is always growing, but a sample schedule may include:
marble pipeline face to face card architects perception cards
balloon race group pull-ups label stick-ups back talk
rank ’em rope star helium stick tennis ball transport
honesty circle near and far jumbled pictures hoop relay
penny dropper mouse trap cup of compliments disappearing chairs
bodyguard scavenger hunt teammate trivia compass walk
all aboard choose ten welded ankles switch / change
These and other activities are designed to build upon each other and will be modified to address your situation and enhance group performance with your desired outcomes…
3. HOW IS YOUR TEAM BUILDING FEE DETERMINED?
Sean charges by the event, and your customized all-inclusive event proposal will be influenced by the number of participants, duration of the event, and type of program desired.
While other companies charge per person and often tack on other unexpected fees, Sean has found that organizations appreciate the value and simplicity of an all-inclusive team building or speaking event quote. His fee covers all participant handouts and required equipment, which he will bring to the event location… and the results you experience will be great!
4. IS THIS REALLY GOING TO IMPACT MY GROUP?
Absolutely! There are a number of research based statistics that explain why team building is important.
“Videos, textbooks, online training, and other modes of education do not
deliver a return on investment by themselves… On the other hand, statistics
show that experiential learning has a 42:1 return on investment.”
– Rick Weaver – “The Number One Way To Learn.” (2006)
5. DO YOU CHARGE EXTRA FOR TRAVEL EXPENSES?
Yes, if your chosen location is outside a reasonable driving distance. Sean prefers to make his own travel arrangements, but you can be sure that he will respect your budget like his own.
As soon as he has all of your information to prepare a tentative schedule for the event, he will send you an all-inclusive event proposal that you can fax back with a signature for confirmation. All travel fees will be included in the proposal Sean will share with you – and you will NEVER have to worry about add-ons or unexpected incidentals.
6. WHAT OTHER PREPARATIONS WILL I NEED TO MAKE?
It is Sean’s pleasure to prepare and deliver all necessary equipment and handle all set-up at your location or at the off-site “retreat” location you choose. Whether it’s a full day of team building or a short set of energizing ice-breakers at your next conference, when you engage Great Results you don’t have to worry about anything!
Once you have decided on a location, Sean will provide the equipment and engaging challenges to involve your whole group. The activities will energize your audience, and then connect every activity to learning insights that achieve the outcomes you have identified!
You will find that Great Results Team Building Events give your people “something different,” and your event will be fun, inclusive, and impactful! Your group will enjoy exciting and innovative team building activities tailored for your organization that will powerfully illustrate the importance of stronger teams, and a cohesive culture.
7. SO, HOW MUCH WILL OUR TEAM BUILDING EVENT COST?
The truth is, “it depends on your organization’s needs and desired outcomes…”
Whether you want a 30-minute ice breaker to kick off a conference or a two-day team building retreat for your staff, Sean can arrange a terrific event for you.
Event fees start around $1800 for a half-day (3-4 hour) team building event, and increase depending upon the duration, group size, and type of event or speaking engagement. These team building fee amounts may also be modified depending upon compensation arrangements or prior bookings. (Discounts are provided for repeat clients!)
Travel expenses and off-site location rental, if applicable, would each be additional expenses and will appear on the ALL-INCLUSIVE proposal Sean provides. Every event includes a preliminary group assessment as well as a follow-up discussion at an appropriate time after your event and up to three months of email consultation.
Pre-assessment discussions will best determine the event proposal that will be most beneficial to improve group performance in your specific situation and provide the Team Building ROI you desire!
