Outside the box

Thinking outside the box - seeing the invisible

Outside the box is a teambuilding activity based on scientific research, designed as a creative way of examining and exploring important issues your company or organisation is facing. Participants are both mentally and physically detached from a day-to-day working environment, so that they can observe these issues in new ways within this event’s unique format. Our facilitator has personal experience in topics such as team building, interpersonal and group dynamics, conflict resolution, and the functioning of scientific teams and labs. Scientific approach introduces important elements into human relationships in a company or organisation. This workshop aims to challenge the participants on both the physical and mental level with specially designed and adopted activities and games hailing from interdisciplinary science communication in a research community. During that process, the participants are guided to take a step out of the ordinary thinking, become aware of the importance of listening, sharing ideas, group dynamics and mutual tolerance. These dynamics are observable, measurable and quantifiable and they characterize high-performance teams, those with creativity, energy and shared commitment. Designed to change attitudes, foster a stronger team spirit and incorporate tools and strategies they can continue to use at work.
