Beyond the Box is a great program for team building. It allowed 55 strangers in our Executive MBA program to open up to each other and set the stage for building a cohesive class and effective working teams. We will use the program again.

Case Study

Resolving Conflict By Building a Positive Workplace

A team working under very difficult and stressful circumstances, and without proper supervision, was summarily fired. When management realized the fault lay with themselves, and not with the employees, they hired the entire team back. A strong supervisor was brought in. By now this team had suffered greatly. They were demoralized, depressed and had lost trust. And, understandably, they resented management.
The Beyond the Box ™ job was to get the team to feel better about the management group and themselves: no small challenge – considering the team was traumatized after having being fired – and then rehired.

Beyond the Box ™ Two-day workshop. The first priority was to clear the air and open communications all round in a safe and open environment. Facilitators used role-playing situations where negative emotions could be expressed without fear of reprisal. This helped them begin to speak from the heart in a setting in which every voice was given the opportunity to be heard.

They learned skills for seeing things from different perspectives, which opened them up to recognizing other viewpoints. They participated in ‘circles’, where people began to understand each other better, not just as co-workers or employees or managers, but also as humans.

Laughter was brought back into the workplace. And with laughter, the trust began to build.

Participants left the session looking forward to getting back to work the next day, now feeling fully engaged in their mission.
