Team Building

Event Outline

In this fast-paced world of UK Supermarkets and their Suppliers, it is essential that the groups of people work together as a team. No one person can achieve challenging targets alone. Our CPD accredited Team Building events support Learners, helping them to work better with others. By supporting your group of people in a Team Building event, we set the foundations for them to become an even more effective and cohesive team.

Team Building

This is a Team Building event of 1+1+1 classroom days, spaced over 4 months. Specifically designed for suppliers to the UK Grocery Industry, it includes support in between training days designed to make the learning stick. You will experience our unique training method Sticky Learning ®.
The course will be delivered by a world class tutor that has worked in the UK Grocery Industry. In addition, like all of our training courses, it includes our ROI guarantee.
This team building event will aim to create a real difference in the way you and your team approach challenges together. Don’t worry, we don’t have you climbing mountains or swimming across lakes! We do, however, get into the psychology of true team development. Making our days about understanding each other better using HBDI ® psychometric tool.

Learning Objectives

Our Team Building event provides the following:

A safe environment to pose challenges, identify team challenges and explore team opportunities.
Empower each individual team member to understand their ‘place’ in the team and what they can offer.
We take the team through Tuckman’s four stages of team development; Forming, Storming, Norming & Performing. This allows the team to understand where it is, where it wants to get to and begin to figure out how to do so.
Hopefully, the term ‘Sticky Learning ®’ has intrigued you. Whilst you probably also guessed a sense of what it is about.
In short, Sticky Learning ® is our own unique learning method. A method that we have developed to help Learners Realise more of what they have learnt. To help them be able to Recall more of what they have learnt. And Retain more of what they have learnt. Furthermore, in 2016 we upgraded this unique training method to include habits formation. We feel this has become a big part of helping Learners to use more of what they have learnt.
This is good for our clients. It means that the money they spend with us is better invested than with other training providers. This is because, by following our methods, the learning is put to use for longer.

MBM organised our annual team away day and delivered a first-class event. Building the schedule around resolving business challenges and conflicts, the content was well-managed and supported by Darren’s insight into high performing teams in customer-facing environments. We were impressed with every aspect of the training and would not hesitate to recommend MBM.”

Ideal Learners

Our Team Building event is for all teams that want to understand themselves and each other better, allowing them to fully achieve their shared goals. It’s for those that need ‘time out’. Time to regroup, get to know each other again, and get ready to face the tough challenges ahead. Moreover, to face these future challenges as a team, not as a group of individuals.
10 Learners because this drives enough discussion between the learners to explore the skill well, whilst not too many that any single Learner gets ‘lost’ in the debate.
If you do not have up to 10 people please check out our 121 Executive Coaching, which can help just you to learn this skill.
Alternatively, contact us and we will do our best to tailor to your specific needs.

How and Why Do We Use the HBDI ® Tool for Our Team Building Events?

The HBDI ® Psychometric tool is a fantastic tool for understanding yourself and others better. Used by large companies like Coca-Cola it has profiled over 2 million people across 45 countries. Having worked with this tool for over 14 years we know that it can provide teams with a foundation to build trust. This, in turn, leads to better relationships and results. Some of the applications of this tool are:
1. Giving more effective feedback.
2. Understanding the overall strength and weakness of a team.
3. Knowing why people ask the questions that they do and need the answers that they do.
4. Buying-in each other better by using the appropriate communication and trustworthy relationships.
5. Capitalising on the strengths of individuals to get the best work done for the team.
6. A model for resolving problems in the group by working through an order that is best for the team.
7. Helping individuals to learn more quickly and in a way that works better for them.

£225 per Learner per day.

The total cost for up to 10 Learners for the 3-day Team Building event is £6,750 plus vat. This includes sticky pieces, and the 5 level evaluation ‘Chain of Evidence’.
The training is held on-site at the client’s premises. Alternatively, we can organise an off-site venue and charge it back to the client.
There are many evaluation methods for training. Each tries to find the holy grail of return on investment. We use Donald Kirkpatrick’s four level training evaluation model as a base. Why? Because it has stood the test of time, since 1953.
1: Reaction: How did the Learners react to the training?
2: Learning: How much learning did the Learners get?
3: Behaviour: How much have the Learners used the learning?
4: Results: How much effect did the Learner’s learning have on performance?
Few training providers measure the return on investment beyond the level 1 reaction. We have added one further level:
5: Sponsor: How much did we achieve the sponsor’s objectives?

Training Course Duration

At MBM we no longer offer 1-day courses due to their limited effect.
This Team Building event benefits from our Sticky Learning ® unique training method. This enables Learners to learn more, learn more quickly, and learn more easily.
Sticky Learning ® is a key part of the 4 month training course. It consists of pre-work, Learning To Learn 1/2 day training course, a Foundation day training course, an embedding day, and an Advanced 1 day training course (4 months after the Foundation training course).
In between the Foundation training course and the Advanced training course, the Learner will be challenged to complete ‘Sticky Pieces’. This appeals to the 70:20:10 learning model. These are desk-based activities that help the Learner to change their long term behaviour by identifying a habit that they wish to adopt to embed the new skill.
The Learner is also given:
1. Access to our skill specific and learning objective specific ‘Knowledge Vault’.
2. Email and telephone support throughout the 4-month training course.
3. An option to bolt on ‘Individual Coaching’ to support the Learner further.
4. An option to bolt on a 1/2 day ‘Annual Refresh’ to further enhance the learning in the future.
