Vulcan – Team Event

port-vulcan-fullVulcan’s mission is to create and advance a variety of world-class endeavors and high impact initiatives that change and improve the way we live, learn, do business and experience the world. A culture of transparency, collaboration and trust is the only setting where this kind of progress can happen.

That’s what Andrew Clapham wanted to provide for his team and across teams in the organization. Vulcan had smart, dedicated people that were so focused on delivering client projects they missed the opportunity to consistently collaborate with other teams. He recognized that what was needed was a shared experience to provide a platform for building community and cross functional relationships. Colleagues who had seen incredible results from BECAUZ referred him to us.

We began the process with a custom-designed a one-day ‘Discovery Trail’ Team Offsite that brought 30 participants together to build a new foundation of trust and shared commitment. By gradually increasing the level of challenge, the day forged the thinking, collaboration and connection teams need to succeed. What was revealed was a more courageous way to function for higher performance, job satisfaction and goal clarity. Thinking shifted from “How can I work harder and faster?” to the more creative and satisfying “How can I think differently with my peers to get different results?”

With newfound communication skills, stronger relationships and accountability, the team and the individuals in it were transformed by the end of the day. Most importantly, the cultural shift persists and Vulcan benefits from a continuous return on its most important investment: Its people.

BECAUZ and the challenges they posed caused us to open up and make the changes needed to become the leaders we were meant to be.
