Developing your team for the future means embracing experiential learning
Even before the pandemic, The World Economic Forum estimated that in the year 2025 the most in demand skills will be complex problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, people management and coordinating with others.
The shift towards these trends has accelerated with COVID and will only keep gathering momentum. Our programs were designed with these skills in mind in late 2019 and have been adjusted even more through 2020 to be ready to get everyone back on track in 2021.
Here is how we are integrating the recommendations at Rapid Teams.
COMPLEX PROBLEM SOLVING
Our team development programs are full of complex problems that take even the smartest minds up to 30 minutes to solve. We create an environment where there is no impact of failure, allowing teams to work through complex scenarios together and develop stronger problem solving techniques.
Complex ‘red herrings’ and overloads of information happen regularly on our team activities and workshops. In a fun way we challenge all participants to think critically and to innovate at speed.
There are many ways to solve the problems we put in front of the teams we work with. Each team member has the opportunity to think differently and ‘outside the box’ to support their team.
What better place for a future leader to shine than in a level playing field with their peers. We mix the group up multiple times throughout our sessions allowing for new leaders in every phase, constantly presenting leadership opportunities.
COORDINATING WITH OTHERS
Our team building workshops give people from multiple departments the opportunity to work together in a level playing field. This encourages networking and breaks down silo mentality as people coordinate to solve challenges together.

Great experience- would highly recommend Rapid Teams. The whole process was smooth, we identified our outcomes for the day and then Rapid Teams were able to deliver them in the training session in a really fun way. All in all it was a professionally delivered workshop with plenty of actions for us to take back to the office and work on as a team.

We spent a fantastic day with Angus a few weeks ago. This was the first time that our practice had done anything similar to this so there were a few of us that approached it with some trepidation!The sessions were challenging, but presented in a relaxed and professional manner that encouraged people to really come out of their shells and contribute to the discussion. Angus did an awesome job.I would highly recommend using Rapid Teams and would not hesitate to have Angus back to do a follow up session with us over the next few years.
