Team Building

Unique team building experiences to unlock your team's hidden potential

No more time and money-wasting, awkward, team building activities!

​​​We've all experienced them. You know... those cringe-worthy team building exercises that some well-meaning person thought would be great for building the team but just leave everyone feeling embarrassed and annoyed?

​​Worse still, you have to go back to work the next day and tell everyone who didn't attend that you spent the day hugging trees blind folded​; doing awkward role plays and ​having endless discussions that went nowhere. Far from being productive, the team is now even more fragmented.

Thankfully, team building done well ​CAN be ​an amazing catalyst to fast-track their success...

What's unique about P2R Team Building?

​​​​Designed for ​tangible busin​​​​ess benefit

​​Drawing on 2​0+ year's team coaching experience, each team building intervention is ​bespoke - designed to meet your specific needs and achieve your desired outcome. ​

​​Creates lasting ​constructive change

​​Gaining commitment to an agreed way forward, we provide ongoing support structures to help the desired change ​stick. ​We help the team DO what they SAY they'll do.

P​ositive team experience

​​We build a safe, trusted, creative ​space where everyone can contribute, ​however they feel comfortable. ​​​We ensure ​team members long remember it as a positive experience.

Time and money well spent

​This is our commitment to you. ​At the start we define what that looks like and how you will KNOW that team building with P2R was ​a ​valuable game-changer.

​What ​can ​P2R Team Building help ​us wit​​​​h?

​​Forming Teams - lay foundations, set up for success

​​Often overlooked when teams are formed, creating a shared vision and ​agreed team norms up front ​ saves costly budget ​and timeline blowouts and the conflict that inevitably happens when a team is left to morph. Unite the wisdom of experienced members with the fresh thinking of new starters to help them bring out the best in each other.

Storming Teams - resolve conflict, solve problems, find the​ir rhythm

​​​A​fter the honeymoon period, teams ​often ​​risk ​falling victim to one or more characteristics of a dysfunctional team. Silos form and battle lines are drawn. Without an effective way to resolve conflict and other problems, your team is on the fast-track to failure. ​I'll help you quickly nip it in the bud, restore trust and re-​focus the team to achieving their goals without the angst.

​​Norming Teams - ​deepen trust, collaboration ​+ healthy team dynamics

​​Once established, many teams are lulled into the malaise of familiarity. Plodding along, there's nothing really wrong but you need them to step up, perform and deliver. I'll help you refocus, re-energise, ​and reconnect your team to get off their plateau. Actively develop their collective strengths to ​enable them to pivot and build their reputation as a high performing team.

Performing Teams - achieve even greater ​success, exceed expectations

​​​Your team is hitting all their deadlines, delivering consistently high quality work so... what else are they capable of? Unlock their true potential by ​pursuing opportunities to deliver even ​more value. Help them ​create an even greater impact, without doing more work. Become the team who sets the benchmark high; leads the way; attracts ​and retains the brightest talent and thrives ​on delivering positive outcomes.

​​​​Project T​eam Building, Corporate Team Building, Business Team Building, Government Team Building, Non-profit Team Building

​Regardless of the ​sector you work in, we can help your team adjust and adapt to acquisitions, mergers, restructures, new management, products or services, system implementations or any other change your team has been tasked with. We specialise in uniting project teams with key stakeholders and strengthening cross-functional team collaboration.

Ability to understand our desired outcomes and then create a program which had a clear journey for the team to achieve the set objectives was superior to other facilitators I have worked with

We recently engaged Caroline on very short notice (less than 2 weeks) to facilitate a coming together of a new Top 25 leadership team as a result of the merger of an external acquisition with an existing internal operating business.

Caroline took our brief and desired outcomes and crafted a thoroughly engaging and rewarding 2 day workshop which was about aligning culture and creating a consistent vision and set of tangible business objectives for a large business unit (greater than 500 people). All the requirements of our brief were achieved without question.

A post workshop survey conducted with the team gave Caroline a 100% score for exceeding expectations as the facilitator.

I found her ability to understand our desired outcomes and then create a program which had a clear journey for the team to achieve the set objectives was superior to other facilitators I have worked with in the past. I would thoroughly recommend Caroline to anyone looking for a facilitator who can ensure your objectives are met and exceeded, who is consistently engaging and who can work the group and their individual characteristics for maximum team and business outcomes.

A rare combination of broad experience, powerful questions, deep insights, high inter-personal skills, unquestionable work ethic, high integrity and low ego

I have known Caroline for over a decade, initially as a consulting colleague and more recently I’ve engaged her on strategy and high performance team development assignments to support my own clients. I can recommend Caroline without reservation as a consummate professional, thoughtful advisor on change and transformation, brilliant facilitator and accomplished coach. She brings that rare combination of broad experience, powerful questions, deep insights, high inter-personal skills, unquestionable work ethic, high integrity and low ego – it’s all about YOU as the client and getting YOUR results, and on that basis I don’t know of any projects within Caroline’s influence that haven’t worked. So, when it’s about strategy or transformation I choose to work with Caroline whenever I can.

Everyone got so much out of it!

Caroline did a brilliant job with our team and we've got some very worthwhile projects to work on as a result. I heard great feedback from other team members too - everyone got so much out of it.

Created a safe yet challenging learning environment that allowed the participants to learn, grow and stretch themselves

Caroline expertly designed and facilitated a program for a group of our emerging leaders. She created a safe yet challenging learning environment that allowed the participants to learn, grow and stretch themselves. Caroline brought wisdom, great energy, humour and a genuine desire for results. The program delivered a demonstrable shift in awareness of self for the participants and awareness about their leadership presence and shadow. Our emerging leaders also walked away with some great tools in their leadership tool kit. The feedback from the program and its impact on participants has been excellent. Thank-you Caroline!

Always striving to get the best out of people in a caring and compassionate way.

Caroline initiated changes which made a true difference and took over a team very down on attitude and enthusiasm. Through her coaching, leadership and direction the team was rebuilt into a successful, efficient working unit. She is not afraid to share her point of view and challenge the status quo, whilst always striving to get the best out of people in a caring and compassionate way.

Will your ​team building work for ​us?

​If ​your business​ success depends on your team

I work best with clients who...
  • ​​​​Work with me - ​make time to co-design the agenda and plan the event
  • ​Involve key decision makers - ​​​the right people are fully engaged from the beginning
  • ​​Actively sponsor their event -  ​​lead and empower their people to achieve their desired outcomes
​It probably ​isn't right if you are...
  • ​​​​Unable to gain active support - ​struggling to find a date because the team is too busy ​with other priorities
  • ​Lacking leadership sponsorship - key influencers won't actively promote the event or support the team
  • ​​​​​Unclear about the benefit - ​taking busy people out of their daily work is seen as a cost. Your reason has to be compelling!

Unique Team Building Success Stories

​​All teams go through different stages of evolution, often with little or no awareness of which stage they are in. ​Understanding changing team dynamics ​and ​strengthening ​foundations, I meet your team where they currently are and help them build the bridge to where they want and need to be.

Exceeded all my expectations

This program exceeded all my expectations. There’s always a risk of trying to cram too much in but this program covered the right amount and type of topics for me to grasp and apply what I’ve learned.

Participants feeling very inspired and motivated about change!

Caroline did a great job hosting our Community Development Forum! She kept everyone engaged and the range of activities that were implemented was highly effective.

It was obvious that people made new connections and gained practical tools to take away, which met our brief perfectly.

Already this morning we have had feedback from participants on how they are feeling very inspired and motivated about change!

Energy, Drive and Patience

Thank you to Caroline for your energy, drive and patience with us. We set an ambitious target of defining our purpose, setting our vision and working out how we could achieve it. After a very full and draining day, I am proud of what we achieved as our foundation and particularly the spirit in which we all got there.

Energising, Inspirational - most engaging Board Strategic Planning process

My experience of working with you has been energising and inspirational. The strategic planning process with the Board was the most engaging that I have been involved in thus far. You seemed to be able to keep the ideas flowing, and to adapt the process according to the information exchange as it was happening. You worked with teams through all levels of the organisation to not only focus on our core business, but to do some magical thinking about the future and where it could take us.
