Team Building Training

Team-Building is an essential activity in bringing people of different professional and cultural backgrounds together. Activities encourage collaboration and teamwork while allowing participants to connect in ways they otherwise wouldn’t experience in their usual setting.

Teams are encouraged to think about the overall dynamic and how their actions apply in real-world/real-workplace settings. Team-building activities are fun, motivational, and helps ignite and further develop communication, planning, negotiation, cognitive, problem-solving, and conflict resolution skills. Activities help facilitate long-term camaraderie and deeper understanding of each person and the collective team in order to secure long-term success.

Our main activity utilizes the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Simulation, created by Imacocollabo. This is a multi-player, in-person, workshop that simulates managing the “real world” into the year 2030 by completing time-sensitive projects with resources such as time, money, and principles. The experience results in a powerful and impactful social phenomenon that gets everyone talking, planning, and really thinking about a sustainable future. How does a team balance the economy, the state of the environment, and the state of society after all?

This is a high-stakes, animated, action-packed activity that your participants will be talking and thinking about for weeks to come!

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The SDGs, also known as the Global Goals, are 17 goals and 169 targets set to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of the United Nation’s sustainable development agenda. Achieving the SDGs requires the partnership of governments, private sector, civil society and citizens alike to make sure we leave a better planet for future generations. The SDGs are ambitious and can seem overwhelming, simply due to their volume and scope. While dramatic in their potential to impact the world, approaching them can be daunting. Each team needs to work as a cohesive group to resolve the world’s issues and the impact each of their actions take not only in their immediate environment but to the rest of the world – affecting billions of people!

Outcomes: What to Expect

Participants will gain direct experience in co-creating a sustainable world while understanding how their actions can either cause a balance or imbalance elsewhere in the world.

Participants experience a change in perspective. Most players finish the simulation feeling excited, connected and ready to take action. They start to think about ways of making a difference in their personal and professional lives.

Participant’s natural curiosity about extremely complex issues become heightened.

Participants natural instincts is to set their aims towards a worthy goal, while simultaneously building confidence, cognitive, planning, negotiation, motivation, communication, planning, problem-solving, and conflict resolution skills.

Participants will learn about leadership styles and gain a better understanding of unconscious bias and how these crucial principles show up in group settings.

Her career began in the early 90’s when she was hired as a business manager for a two-year project to coordinate joint-venture endeavors in the cement, garment, and food industries in Anhui, Shanghai, and Xiamen, China. Upon her return to the United States, she pivoted into various management roles in the hotel industry including the role of head project manager where she oversaw the development of four brand hotel properties in California.

Jennifer would go on to pursue her childhood interest in medicine and healthcare by completing a pre-nursing program and her undergraduate education in Health Science with a focus in Healthcare Administration from California State University, Sacramento. In 2006, Jennifer was awarded a U.S. Congressional Fellowship which provided her opportunities to conduct behavioral research at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the National Institute of Aging (NIA) and clinical research in liver disease at the National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive, and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) in Bethesda, Maryland. California Senator Dianne Feinstein honored Jennifer's achievements by having the American flag flown over the U.S. Capitol.
