Team Building: Stretch Your Body, Stretch Your Mind

Team building on ropes courses challenges people to go beyond the familiar.  They  get a work out mentally and physically.  Stretching your arms and legs to by climbing or traversing  to achieve milestones can help many gain confidence.  Also, working in groups, participants on challenge courses have to work with people they might not know very well.  Therefore they are exposed to different ways of thinking as the group works under constraints to solve both mental and physical problems. Stretch Your Body, Stretch Your Mind.



Athletes and musicians develop muscle memory from repeating a sequence of steps.  Students also learn by frequently practicing a series of rules in reading, writing and arithmetic.   So what happens when a person is faced with an unfamiliar environment?  Some fight.  Others take flight.  On a challenge course, we ask you to ask for help and work together.  While most courses operate on a challenge-by- choice doctrine, what happens when peer pressure or better yet, supportive team mates encourage you to try?  Well you stretch yourself and learn.

Learning comes from failure as well as success.  A group that takes on a challenge will often learn more about themselves and each other by coming up short than by succeeding.  The games may be silly but the lessons translate well and stretching yourself yields many benefits.
