Team building sessions

Lessons from the animals

In partnership with develop-u

Who is this workshop aimed at?

This workshop is for any organisation looking to develop high performing teams and great places to work. The workshop focuses on understanding human behaviour by observing, understanding and relating to the behaviour of animals. The Park’s Rangers introduce different species and their associated behaviours, enabling delegates to learn how to thrive in the workplace.

During the workshop delegates will be exposed to and start to:

  • Understand the social amd team behaviours of lions, meerkats and guinea baboons; and identify positive examples that can be applied in a personal, team and organisational context.
  • Understand simplified versions of NLP, transactional analysis and emotional intelligence to support them in taking new behaviours and new ways of working back into their organisation.
  • Plan to introduce new ways of working and thinking that will improve their performance and that of their team and organisation. Develop-u’s inspirational coach enables everyone to connect with what they are learning and find ways to apply this. The programme is designed to have a positive behavioural impact on individuals, teams and organisations.
