Corporate Team Building Workshop Session Comments

  • I am so impressed with the power and effectiveness of your REAL team building process. I have done many team buildings, but I never experienced something like this where we get to the real heart of the people. The other team buildings are just “feel-good-for-a-moment” and leave you with nothing… This was amazing! I want you to come and facilitate the rest of my IDT teams… Mr Ayanda Wakaba (Wakes) Executive Head of DPS Independent Development Trust

  • Hi Tony… We are moving on really well. The team has gotten so much closer to each other. The day after you were with us, we made agreements on ways of working. We have come up with ways for the reps to interact with each other on a more regular basis. The great thing I see now is that people are giving each other compliments and calling each other for help. Trust has massively gone up. My main objective now is to build upon that momentum. Thanks again for your great help …. Regards, Chris …Nutricia… PS even in my private life it has made a difference, I am now so much more aware of the fact that I have a “choice” on what I choice to feel like, been a major eye opener.

  • What we achieved today in our team building is quite amazing and incredible. Our office just aren’t ready for this new amazing team – they are going to wonder what on earth has happened. Incredible! – Ann – SAMA

  • I arrived this morning not feeling very happy, and now I almost cannot believe how good I feel right now! Rika

  • After Tony facilitated a half day team building with us we almost quadrupled our business to around 800 Million! That’s why we chose them again for this years session.. because our last session was truly amazing. Deon – IDT

  • I’m leaving this team building feeling blissful! – Malebo

  • Dear Tony, on behalf of the team, I would like to thank you for a truly enlightening and potentially life changing experience. As I mentioned at the end of the session, we have conducted many team building exercises before, but the difference with this one was that over and above breaking down barriers within the team, it also made us focus on key leadership aspects that we as the executive team should be prioritizing in leading our organization. It also enabled us to build up trust within the team which should make us stronger as we go forward into the future. The onus is now with us to leverage on what we learned from the session and ensure a sustainable improvement in our leadership practices and team work. Once again thank you for your facilitation of what turned out to be a unique experience for all of us. Andile Mvinjelwa, Managing Director, SA Mint.

  • After only 1 day of teambuilding, facilitated by Tony, I could see a marked improvement in the coherence of the 35 people in this TEAM. I am writing this 3 months after the event, and still this continues – a real lasting impact. I realize that real teambuilding means work, not merely group entertainment. The stop-start-continue list which we drafted in the session gave us concrete stuff to work on, and we keep reminding ourselves of this through regular stock-taking of where we are. I would recommend Tony with no hesitation, both for the content of his program and for his personal style. Elizabeth van Renen: Director International Trade, National Department of Agriculture

We are doing great so far. May the Lord Almighty shower you with blessings? – kind regards Nomthi Magwaza

  • Thanks Team Mum. I am one of the most cynical people I know, and Ruthven agrees!! Perhaps I need to explain. I have always been sceptical and derisive (and dismissive at times) about Americans and their reliance on therapy, DIY books, as well as motivational books. I have always thought I have everything I need to motivate myself. In the process however, I was disregarding the huge lessons that can be learnt from simplistic and at times clichéd words (an example, “if it has to be, it’s up to me”—the power of words, hey!) This became clear to me when we were playing the blind fold games at Kievitskroon. We were saying we have done this before, we have learnt the lesson. By the end of the last game however, we were all of us talking about the profound lessons we learnt. On the face of it, these are simple games, which talk about basics. Unfortunately we all forget the basics, whether it’s of communication, how we project ourselves and appear to others, how we often use words not followed by action, etc. By the end of the first team building session, I was a changed man. I recall an incident with my daughter when she was upset with her mother and I almost jumped into the fray. I stopped myself and really thought about the issue before saying anything that would not help anyone. I became aware of my role in the whole situation, and how I could help the situation. I am writing this at a time when I am supposed to be doing a lot of other things, seeing as we only have two working days next week, but you and Tony have really changed my life and I thank you. I for one will pay it forward. Namaste Lufuno R Ndou Executive Manager: Outreach OPP
