What do you mean by “Team”?
This is actually one of the few programs where we don’t form teams. There are sections where people may need to work with a partner, but in general this is a whole group activity.
What is the typical length of the program, and is this flexible?
A typical program runs 2.5-3 hours. This is extremely flexible and can be run from 1.5 hours to an all-day program. We can tailor this to suit your day’s needs. There is also an optional introduction to meditation that typically runs for an hour.
How much set-up time is needed?
A half hour is good for most groups.
We’re using our conference room all day. Can you set up during our break?
Possibly. It depends on the group size and the break length.
What are the room requirements?
The ideal set up is lots of open space and some chairs around the perimeter of the room. We need enough room that everyone can stand up, swing their arms, and not hit their neighbor. A lav microphone is needed for groups larger than 30 people.
What about prizes?
Prizes are not recommended for this activity. This is not a competition.
What is the best attire for this event?
Comfortable clothing that allows freedom of movement is recommended. Business casual attire is fine. We don’t recommend skirts, suits, heels, or flip flops.
Can this be done outdoors?
Yes, but please have a back-up plan if the weather is bad.
Some of our people are not in the best shape. How strenuous is this?
This is designed for people who work in office buildings all day. Participants typically do not break a sweat. The idea is to do some light activity to illustrate a point and then discuss how the concept applies to improving the workplace. People can move at their own pace, and if they feel something might hurt their back/knee/shoulder etc. they can skip that part and still participate in the discussion.
How much clean up time is needed?
For most groups, this can be cleaned up in less than a half hour.
