Using NLP for Team Building
Strategies and tools for building, maintaining, and growing your key teams



About the Programme

New Oceans provides a Team Building Training Programme that takes the best in team building, team learning and team excellence and blends them with the latest in communication, personal development and accelerated learning techniques.

This programme is a way of developing team excellence through the core skills and thinking of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). NLP is the study of what works in thinking, language and behaviour. It is a way of coding and reproducing excellence that enables you consistently to achieve the results that you want for yourself, your customer and your business.

The objective for this training is to build strong, creative teams. By conducting team building activities and teaching team members ways to increase trust and rapport, the foundation for group success is greatly enhanced. Participant's will learn and practice NLP techniques during the training (one or two days) and learn the fundamentals of effective teamwork. During this training teams are exposed to different cognitive strategies as defined by NLP models of excellence. Throughout the training, team building activities are used to understand the process of creative problem solving. The programme can be tailored to fit the needs of the organization.
