Our team building workshop for teachers are not your ordinary programs just to make your group feel group for a few days. OPA’s customized team building programs are specifically designed for schools that focus on building higher levels of team performance. Our Team Development programs accomplish this through highly dynamic and experiential activities. Each session is designed to capitalize on the advantages of teams and teamwork. Because no two teams are ever alike, we customize our Team Building Programs to meet the dynamics and culture of your school or department. Prior to the program, OPA will conduct an initial needs assessment through telephone interview or meeting directly with 2-3 key members of the team. In addition OPA can provide each member with needs assessment to each member of the team. The information received will serve as a foundation for the design and execution of the team building experience. This information helps us better understand team dynamics, team make-up, and what areas of improvement need to be addressed.
Why Customize Your Team Building Program
Our customized team building programs utilize team initiatives which are high energy team building activities that get everybody up and moving, indoors or outdoors. These team building activities are physical challenges appropriate for educational professionals and they are an excellent way to accelerate team performance. Our Team Initiatives are results oriented, Build Trust, Promote Problem Solving, Leadership, Accountability, Support, Team Communication, Team Commitment, & Integrity.
