Apart from the vast amount of information in each section on the core values of team work, Team Building course contains more than 20 practical exercises that enable delegates to try and implement the information received during the course.  Delegates will have a chance to participate in exercises on subjects such as coaching, cooperation, problem solving, trust and emotional skills.
