From team to dream team
First comes a brief introduction to the rituals and values associated with the dragon boat, which lends itself to team development like nothing else. Every man and woman can master the different roles, and leadership strengths, communication, team abilities, and determination are clear to see. Once the goals are agreed, the teams are chosen by lots or choice.
The coaches accompany the teams in their formation phase, deal with any conflicts and establish rules in order to provide constructive assistance to the participants during the phases of reflection.
Onto the water
The best part of the work is on water. Now it is important for every participant to be able to deal quickly with diverse challenges and at the same time find their place in the team. Whether team member or leader, everyone is challenged to concentrate on the common goal and tolerate each others' mistakes. This quickly creates an atmosphere of trust and honesty in the service of a common goal.
Afterwards the participants analyse the feelings and experiences engendered by the move from self to team. These factors often have a powerful unconscious effects on our complex everyday lives, and the boat and the team offer manageable ways of promoting self-knowledge, showing the interaction of different effects, and motivating people to embrace change.
With the knowledge gained from the reflection, the teams prepare to race against each other. You experience the sense of motivation first hand and feel the adrenalin that your body pours into the race. It quickly becomes clear who has found the best ways to lead and work together. Everyone who has experienced the power of the collective is a winner!
In the last part, the participants reflect on the process as a whole: from the agreement of the goals to their achievement. The point is to learn clear and simple lessons from the findings and go on to apply them in everyday life.
