Our team development training is focused on the provision of key skills that help you to work in unity as one cohesive unit.

When team morale is high, it is a proven fact that efficiency and performance increase. With this in mind it’s easy to see why corporate training and team building can play an important role in the long-term strategy of your company. By working together through engaging and fun activities, your team will learn to challenge and test themselves. 


We remind your teams how important it is to work as an effective unit, and what positive impact this has to not only themselves but also to the success of the company. Great things in business are never done by one person. They are done by a team of people who are all going in the same direction striving to achieve mission success together.


We create an environment that encourages teamwork, trust, team spirit, communication, as well as an unwavering focus.

Imagine a world where your team communicates and everyone from the top down understands the company strategy and implements it with pride and passion. We use military approaches, themes, and training techniques to help you align your business strategy with your teams through fun but challenging reality-based team building programs which are designed to engage and unite everyone participating, where unity and teamwork are key to your growth.

Whether you are wanting to have a fun team-building day at the office, or if you are wanting to truly evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the team, our PLANEX is for you. Your team will be put under considerable pressure as they work together during this time sensitive team challenge. Every minute matters during this intense and thought provoking activity that is designed to push your team to their mental limits. Your team’s attention to detail, communication, prioritizing, and decision making skills will be tested during our PLANEX activity. While working with your team in the office, your hearts (and minds) will be racing by the end of it. Will you and your team make the right decisions? Or will it end in mission fail?

Prior to the start, we will hold a briefing of the task at hand. Then, divided into teams of 3-4 people, you will be given your assignment along with 45-minutes to work through its objectives. After the 45-minutes have passed, our proctor will lead a debrief of the PLANEX results through a discussion based format that will facilitate both learning and growth for all participants. This PLANEX will benefit your team by enhancing their teamwork, communication, strategic thinking, and thought processing abilities. We are confident your team has never experienced anything like this before. With an assortment of PLANEX's, we are able to host half and full day events with a focus solely on PLANEX tasks for your team to take on.
