Sink or swim this program is an effective, engaging and entertaining event for corporate groups of all sizes.
It will be clear which teams elevate their performance to meet the Eagle Glider Construction Challenge requirements. Success will be a byproduct of great communication, effective leadership, innovative approaches, creative marketing and, of course, a team's ability to FLY!
The Eagle Glider Construction Challenge is an extremely entertaining and dynamic event for groups of all sizes. People are swept away with enthusiasm as the program progresses. Each person will have a chance to shine while they complete a ongoing selection of challenges as their team's glider is built. Groups need not be industrial design engineers or rocket scientists to do well with this challenge - just willing to play a little bit and take action decisively. The key themes this event focuses on are communication, collaborative presentation skills, teamwork, problem-solving, and strategy.
Participants will be divided into groups of 3-6 people per team for this event. Teams will be responsible for designing, building and testing a functional glider made entirely out of simple raw materials that will be provided. Awards will be presented in a fun and humorous wrap-up after the gliders have soared……or NOT!
Once the glider is built, it will be evaluated in a number of areas including presentation, design, advertising/marketing, cohesiveness and finally, functionality. This means that each team will be launching their glider into our testing facility during the measured distance challenge. Winning the distance title will not guarantee the overall win, but it will be a big factor.
Corporate Explorer Training's team building education programs are ideal for any group looking for a program that marries fun and playful activities with solid skills development and training. It is the best of both worlds, your people participate enthusiastically AND your organization benefits from the training.
During the course of the event, teams will have to deal with several curve balls that are not uncommon in the real world, such as, project modifications, staff changes, etc. At the end of the building process, teams will put together a group presentation that will highlight their accomplishments and ‘sell’ their glider to the customer. The event lasts between 3-4 hours with some flexibility depending on venue and desired skills focus.
Following the testing phase, there will be a facilitated debriefing session where the events will be dissected according to the concepts that were learned. This review will be invaluable to knowledge retention following the event. Participants will also have the chance to share what they observed and learned.
Finally, there will be an awards presentation where each team will be recognized for any outstanding elements of their project, and the coveted Eagle Glider Contract will also be given to the winning team.

“The facilitator was AMAZING! He was well versed, and super organized. He did well with time management, even though we started the event almost 30 minutes late. He also kept the people who had to wait entertained by playing extra team building games while they waited - what a star! Simply the best! - Goldcorp Inc. (Vancouver, BC)
