Team Building

Lieutenant Commander Santosh Chetri(Ex-Indian Navy ) blends team building exercises learnt at the Military academy  and twenty years of people’s development.

A team building workshop led by a military officer can be a valuable experience for any organization looking to improve teamwork, communication, and leadership skills. Military officers are often well-versed in leading teams in high-stress situations and can bring a unique perspective to team building exercises.

Key Elements that would be incorporated into a team building workshop:

1. Physical challenges: Military officers are often skilled in leading physical challenges that promote teamwork, communication, and problem-solving skills. Activities like obstacle courses, team-based races, and trust exercises can be valuable for building camaraderie and trust within a team.

2. Leadership training: Military officers are trained in leadership and can provide valuable insights into leadership techniques and strategies. A team building workshop might include discussions and exercises focused on leadership, decision-making, and communication.
3. Role-playing exercises: Role-playing exercises can be an effective way to teach problem-solving, decision-making, and communication skills. Military officers may use role-playing exercises to simulate high-stress situations and teach teams how to work together to overcome challenges.

4. Team-building games: Military officers may use team-building games to help teams build trust, communication, and problem-solving skills. These games can be tailored to fit the needs and goals of the organization, and can be a fun way to promote teamwork and collaboration.
