Team Building

Our teambuilding seminars are designed to enhance an organization’s ongoing commitment to addressing issues associated with building and managing teams effectively. The workshops are geared toward educators, executives, managers, administrators, and support personnel who want to increase their knowledge of the team building phenomenon and sharpen leadership skills that are necessary for optimum performance as team players.  The workshops are also geared toward individuals who want to grow as leaders and have the opportunity to learn from individuals representing diverse backgrounds.

To implement the team-building process of your company successfully, we can help you by assuming the role of coach or facili­tator by urging your employees to be the owner of their tasks. We will try to achieve a greater improve­ment in teamwork, by making the team members develop their own behavioral change strategy rather than if you would have developed the strategy and impose it on the team. Our team is very diverse and comprises of world renowned experts in their fields from USA, Africa, Europe, Australia, Japan and Asia.

Some of our courses and team building are fully tax deductible expense. Take advantage of training opportunities in an attractive environment for yourself, or to motivate your best employees and customers.

Program dates and costs will be fully adapted to your wishes and requirements. At your request and mutual consultation, we are able to develop a program so as to always achieve the expected objectives and the program to meet your specific goals. The most important however, we consider the importance of the informal part of the program, during which, apart from making the members of the team feel good, it develops a sense of belonging for all team members.

You can choose from a wide range of training programs in our attractive environment.

A Selection of 5 to 17 Days Teambuilding Programs in East Africa

Our team building proposals are based on a 5 to 17 days team building event for a mixed group of 6 to 28 people, both in terms of age and gender. The proposals involve the group being transported from the airport after arriving from Europe or any other place to the event and returned to the airport at the end of their stay in Africa. We have made several suggestions for the event, all of which will involve the group being outside at some point during the day.

Opus Tours Ltd specializes in the East Africa travel market and the following itinerary can be customized to any group’s exact requirements based on our experience and knowledge of East Africa. Our aim is to ensure that you have the best possible experience whilst visiting Africa.

Samples of Teambuilding Programs

Teambuilding in Human Resources Management

Day Activity
Day 1 On arrival from Europe the team will have a short journey from the airport to the city of Moshi for accommodation and acclimatization.
Day 2

Workshop

Developing Trust Irregular, inconsistent communi­cation; lower level of comfort and familiarity among team members; “us vs. them” attitude.
Developing Group Identity Fewer shared experiences; lack of cohesion; little understand­ing of other members’ roles and responsibilities.
Day 3 The following our experts will take the group to a full day of activities on the slope of Mount Kilimanjaro countryside. This will guarantee a lot of fun, excitement and a great sense of achievement as well as a bit of friendly competition. On arrival at the activity site the group will be served coffee and shortbread before being split into teams and briefed on the day’s events. The different teams will then rotate between waterfalls diving, cross country biking in high altitude, and finding their way to the meeting point through the banana fields. A delicious barbeque lunch is included as well as afternoon tea and a prize giving ceremony at the end of the day. A coach will then return the group to their hotel in Moshi or Arusha.
Day 4

Workshop

Sharing Information Difficulty sharing adequate lev­els of information across distances; lack of formal opportunities to discuss work-related issues; lack of a common system to trans­mit information across dis­tances.
Developing Clear Structures Uncertain roles and responsibili­ties of team members; clash­ing cultures create different expectations, few clearly defined processes for decision making.
Day 5-10 The team will have an opportunity to visit some of the national parks in Tanzania, which offer lovers of wild nature the true wild animals’ haven. They include for instance Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Tarangire, Mikumi, and Selous National Parks etc. The trip will be scheduled in cooperation with our wildlife experts to ensure maximum satisfaction. Watching migration of animals in Serengeti plains is unrepeatable experience and we hope no team member will want to miss the chance.
Day  11

Workshop

Formation of Cliques or Informal Subgroups Cliques tend to create antago­nism and competition be­tween the team and the proj­ect manager, between team members, or among the cliques themselves.
