A Team That Plays Together, Wins Together

Team Building through Lenses of Vincent the Trainer

My best days in organizations that I have worked with before are those when we went out to play. Playing together as a team does magic in how we relate with one another, how we perceive work and the potential we realize in ourselves. Whether it is in a room somewhere or out in the natural environment, well-organized team building delivers many positive returns in uniting colleagues into one family. It is a sure approach in promoting working relationships that are needed in getting things done. Team building events can be coupled with training sessions where other disciplines like planning, time management, effective communication and resilience are taught. These sessions can also be utilized to promote the desired organizational culture or simply to break the ice between senior staff members and their juniors. 

In a world where people want more leisure and less work, organizations need to find a way of making work interesting. Making work interesting is a journey. First is forming interested teams, then creating a winning atmosphere in the team. This will take a well-thought plan to execute. A professional team-building trainer will help you identify the right venue, relevant activities to be done, share key-note motivational talks during the team building event and play the master of ceremonies role throughout the sessions. In most cases, a team-building trainer with sufficient experience in the profession tends to meet diverse goals of team building when involved from planning stage. Surprisingly, a trainer may end up helping to cut costs by playing a liaison role in securing venues, public address systems and related logistics that may apply in different forms of team building.

One of the best team building trainers of our days is Mr Vincent Ochembo who is known as Vincent The Trainer (VTT) in the industry. Vincent is a multi-talented team-building trainer based in the Coastal City of Mombasa. According to Vincent, a team that plays together wins together. He has previously hosted teams from different organizations including Government, NGOs, Parastatals, Corporations and Small groups as an MC and as a team-building expert. On his Facebook timeline, Vincent Ochembo posts some of the activities that he gets the teams to do and the venues where he has hosted team-building activities. He is reachable via ochembovincent2014@gmail.com. Vincent is the founder and lead trainer at PLC LTD.
