“WE DISCOVERED NEW HAUNTS AND GOT TO BE OUT IN THE OPEN AIR FOR A BIT. AGAIN, I WAS AMAZED BY THE COLLABORATION THAT WAS ELICITED FROM THE TEAM — THEY STILL TALK ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE MONTHS LATER!”
“ONE OF THE THINGS THAT STOOD OUT TO ME ABOUT THE PROCESS IS HOW QUICKLY A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO DID NOT REALLY KNOW EACH OTHER LEARNED HOW TO WORK TOGETHER, DELEGATE AND CAPITALIZE ON EACH GROUP MEMBERS ASSETS TO COMPLETE THE PROJECT.”
“OVERALL, IT WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE THAT SPARKED INSIGHTFUL CONVERSATIONS ABOUT TEAM BUILDING AND HOW TO WORK WITH EVERYONE EVEN WHEN WE HAVE DIFFERENT VALUES, STYLES, AND APPROACHES.”
“ALL I CAN SAY IS ‘WOW’, WHAT A GREAT TEAM BUILDING TIME WE HAD WITH DAN AND RPT! WE TRUSTED, LAUGHED AND LET OUR GUARDS DOWN TOGETHER! AMAZING BONDING EXPERIENCE FOR OUR OFFICE.”
A pharmaceutical company needed to bring their pharmaceutical representatives and their nurses together as a better team for the doctors they work with. Previously, they would work independently and only answer questions referring to the other team when needed.
This company had previously worked with the founder of Rock Paper Team and chose RPT to create a workshop and outdoor experience to show these two different positions why they needed to work together. After initial planning calls, looking at the mission and values of the company and the motto, which would become their mantra, Rock Paper Team created a customized professional team building experience on the streets on Washington, D.C. where they broke into two teams of six people to engage with strangers on the street to learn an everyday activity.
By taking the pharmaceutical representatives and nurses together and engaging strangers on the street, they were able to bounce ideas off each other, which helped them engage with potential participants. In one hour they had achieved more productivity than was anticipated before they began.
Returning to the meeting room, the participants reflected on and shared the successes of teaming up to accomplish their goals by using the life cycle of a team and strategies on how to avoid dysfunctions. By putting into practice an idea that was shared (to work together), but not acted upon previously (working independently), everyone saw the benefits from the outcome. By working together, these co-workers were able to find strength in numbers and work as a unified group when approaching their common clients —the doctors—so that they could exceed the expected company and team goals.
