Virtual Team Building | Using videoconferencing software to engage your remote team
Working from home is not a new phenomenon, multinational organizations have introduced such policies years ago. But during the Covid-19 pandemic, working from home has reached a new height, and most governments have made it mandatory, not only for large companies, but for small and medium sized businesses as well. At least for the time being or until the Coronavirus have been tamed.
Working from home may bring some advantages, mainly increased productivity, no (or less) commuting time,and a better work-life balance. However, what may have started with a euphoria among workers has grounded in reality.
Loss of social connection may be depressing, a misaligned management team may even struggle more to work as a team, and low morale seems a big problem for HR professionals and leadership consultants.
That's were virtual team building activities may be of use. Teams who work from home but in the same city may benefit the most from virtual team building because some activities or courses are inf fact hybrids, we start virtual, and meet in person as part of the exercise. Or some equipment and instructions are sent to the employees home to start a new team building project that is later shared vie videoconferencing app to all team members. For teams who are work from home in different cities or even countries may benefit from our virtual teamwork sills training workshops, like the The Five Dysfunctions of a team, The Six Thinking Hats, Strategic Planning with fun, or Creating a H2H Culture.

Organizational Change | Building the workplace of the future
Why is it that many organizations talk about change, attend change meetings, go on change workshops, watch change presentations, sign up to speeches by famous change consultants, yet change doesnt really happen in their organization. The way we do things tomorrow is the same as we do them today.
As human beings, we are naturally inclided about change. We prefer the world to work the same tomorrow as it does today. In order to change, we need to leave our comfort zone. We have to change our habits, our practices, our routines, our traditions and our conventions. In short, we have to change our culture.
Have you ever given up a really bad habit, like smoking or using your cell phone too much? If you did, than you know how hard change can be. At first glance it looks like a mammuth task and it scares the hell out of us. But when we look at it more closely, when we break down the idea of change into smaller elements, it becomes more tangible.
Most organizations know how important change is. So why do most companies pay lip service to the idea of change? Why is it that talk remains talk and and is seldom put into action?

What is the duration of your workshops?
The shortest workshops we do are half-day (3-4 hours) and the longest we currently do are four-days and three nights, or approx. 32 hrs.
Where do your workshops take place?
What skills do you teach?
We teach soft skills that make you work more efficiently in a team. These are communication skills, conflict resolution, relationship building, giving feed-back, and assertiveness. Those skills are for all job positions, including rank-and-file staff.
What is a debriefing?
What is your teaching methodology?
Our workshops are based on the principle of team building and experiential learning, with hands-on learning activities and exercises. Students are referred to as participants and learn through experience, reflection and discourse.
Trainers are referred to as facilitators who help the team to understand their common objectives and to assists them to plan how to achieve these objectives. In the process, the facilitator typically remains "neutral", or is unideological, meaning he/she acts as a mediator and does not take a particular position in the discussion.
Many of our activities are designed in-house or are well researched from famous institutions, trainers, consultants or best-selling books.
Similar to the Montessori principle, Beunite prefers working with environmental friendly and recyclable learning materials, such as bamboo, rattan, wood, paper, cardboard and rope.
We believe that physical exercise helps the brain to process and retain information. We include activities to encourage conceptual and lateral thinking to stimulate both sides of the brain.
Many of our team building activities are of collaborative nature (WIN-WIN), however, we also use competitive activities (with a winning team) to make the workshop more fun and exciting.
Why should we attend your workshops?
We believe that children as well as adults need a safe environment to build trust and relationships, to step out of their comfort zone and to experiment with new ideas and concepts. We believe that the environment and clean air is important to learn and grow and a large part of our workshops take place outdoors.
How much do your workshops cost?
We typically charge about 2,000 to 3,500 USD for a full-day workshop.
