Team Building Masterclass

Embrace Connections Team Building Masterclasses focus directly on improving interpersonal soft skills, team dynamics and relationships between colleagues.

Each session begins with a gentle introduction to set expectations for the space. This is followed by a sequence of activites and reflections. Sessions proceed at a comfortable pace, allowing participants to adapt to new environments and modes of interaction without overreaching. The group decides how deep to go, depending on their openness and comfort.

The exact duration and schedule can be adapted to your group’s needs.

These Masterclasses use movement and touch-based practices from partnered modalities such as AcroYoga/partner acrobatics, partner dance, contact improv, fighting, wrestling, massage, etc. The body is a powerful tool to provoke insights about ourselves and the ways we interact with others. So, these partnered activities target interpersonal soft skills directly.

The entire session is built upon a culture of consent. articipants should not feel pressured to engage in any activity they are not comfortable with.

Solutions can include a mix of:

  • Embodiment practices to improve awareness and make everything that comes more grounded and authentic
  • Ice-breaking activities to dissolve internal blockages and bring down barriers between people
  • Connection pratices to improve trust, empathy and communication in the group
  • Culture strategy setting session
  • Deep dive on empathetic 1-1s
  • Ways of working: understanding and communicating workplace needs
  • Small group reflections
  • Shared meals
