(and fun!) on the High Seas
Imagine the thrill of sailing
a tall ship past Newport harbor into the deep blue sea. The spirit
of cooperation, shared vision, flexibility, and speed of response
required of crew members 250 years ago mirror the key success
factors in the business world today. Now, imagine your very own
work team participating in an exciting team building adventure,
sailing the Continental Sloop Providence, an historic replica of the tall
ship once sailed by John Paul Jones, through the Narragansett
Sailing a tall ship is ideal
way to develop personal leadership and team building skills. It
also provides a unique opportunity to enhance your sense of team
cohesion and reflect on the real challenges your business faces
in the months ahead.
The Providence Maritime Heritage
Foundation has created a very unique team learning experience
aboard the Continental Sloop Providence that will challenge your team members
to work in harmony with others in confined conditions, to utilize
one another's diverse strengths, and respond to the unusual, unpredictable,
and sometimes challenging conditions of the marine environment.
Your team will learn to set realistic expectations, communicate
effectively, make quick decisions, delegate responsibility, coach
one another for improved performance, and manage conflict productively.
We will work with you to design a one-day adventure program that
achieves your team goals and addresses your key business objectives.
Our 1-3 day programs combine
highly interactive, shore-based team building workshops with a
sailing adventure that allows your team members to "learn the
ropes" and actually sail the tall ship under the close watch of
our experienced captain.
Sailing adventures are led by
WorkPlace Dynamics! The mission of WorkPlace Dynamics is to change work as we know it by creating workplaces where employees are engaged in the business of the organization, continue to learn and grow, contribute to the success of the business and feel more connected to their work. WorkPlace Dynamics has designed a unique communication and teambuilding workshop that takes place aboard the Continental Sloop Providence. By the end of the workshop, your team will have experienced challenges and collaborated to achieve results. They will leave with the tools to communicate effectively both within the team and with others outside the team.
Sailing is for everyone. The
Narragansett Bay and surrounding coastline provides the option
of sheltered waters, relatively short hops, quiet anchorage's,
and good food and accommodation at a variety of first class hotels.
Previous sailing experience is not required and one does not have
to be overly athletic to fully participate. We also design programs
to complement or set the theme for your on-shore business meetings,
conferences, and seminars.
