Orienteering Team Building derives from orienteering training, a run in wild terrain born in Scandinavia. It’s a challenge limited by time, where the rival teams, with the help of a topographical map and eventually of a compass, must reach the finish line in less possible time. They have also to pass a series of control points, marked by flags, that the teams must reach in a specific order. The difficulty of Orienteering is to find independently the best path to follow.
In Orienteering Team Building, the Team components will find themselves outside of their comfort zone, taking decisions and looking for the right reference points in an unknown environment. We can here observe behaviors of technical leadership VS charismatic leadership, and watch how the decisions are made and which are their premises. Orienteering Team Building is an instrument that brings the participants in a pleasant natural context where they can experience relationships, decisional processes and capacity of finding references in quickly changing environments.
The goal that we associate with this activity is to find some points scattered in the territory. This can be done with the use of some instruments (maps and compasses) and with the help of our companions.
This proposal is addressed to groups who want to live a day in contact with nature, while improving their team work. The activity can have different duration, from a couple of hours to a whole day.
Purposes of Orienteering:
Milestones of Orienteering:
Compass, card, maps. Orienteering does not require specific equipment, we will need just trekking shoes and a k-way to protect us in case of rain or humidity.
The whole event is created and conceived by TeamWorking staff in order to let the incentive travel have all the necessary elements to create, consolidate and develop individual and group skills.
Participants are divided in teams and brought in the greenery, by feet. After the briefing each team receives the rules of the game and a simplified map of the place.
Each team must find some specific points marked on the map. Having find the first point, the team will proceed as quickly as possible to the next goal. At each check point the teams will have to solve riddles to continue to the next point. Each playground area will be controlled by a trainer, in order to guarantee safety and success of the activity.
At the end of the activity, the winning team will receive prizes.
