Earlier this year we worked with Leapfrog – a fast paced company making educational toys whose recent growth had brought significant changes, particularly among the leadership team.
Our approach was to identify the potential of each member of the team using the Strengths Deployment Inventory, a questionnaire based on Jungian psychology that plots team members’ strengths graphically. This demonstrates areas where the team as a whole is strong or might be lacking.
To test the theory the team then tackled a collaborative team building exercise, The Team Machine, in which small groups build mechanical structures from giant Meccano style components. Having constructed each element the groups must come together as one team to deduce the correct position and sequence of each component enabling the 20 metre long Team Machine to function.
This was a great opportunity for us to work with a company who shares our values and understands that people learn best through play. See the case study for more details on this programme.
