PRACTICAL WAYS TO BUILD AND NURTURE A HIGH-PERFORMING TEAM

Whether running a team of five or five hundred, many people find themselves in leadership positions because of previous ‘technical’ success – we may excel at playing the game, but have little to no training on how to be a great coach or team player.

75% of employees leave jobs because of their immediate boss at least once in their career (source: Gallup). Can you afford to have ill-equipped managers and unhappy teams?

Demand for talent is high, supply is low, and recruiting is costly. Yet we spend very little time teaching our people how to nurture effective teams. It’s not rocket science – there are time-tested behaviors that can create a more harmonious workplace.

BOTH ELEVATED TEAM BUILDING & PRACTICAL LEADERSHIP TRAINING

‘Team Harmony’ occupies a unique space – it’s both an immersive team building experience and a very practical leadership program . Our workshops have been designed in partnership with global corporate neuroscience pioneers Synaptic Potential, to build trust and enhance interpersonal skills. Combined with SongDivision’s globally renowned team building expertise, your people will learn and grow together.

Your leaders and their teams will go through a series of practical workshops together, where our rock star facilitators guarantee every person is engaged and the learning is anchored: Music = memory

WHY MUSIC?

When negative team dynamics occur, cortisol is produced in our brains, causing us to operate from the amygdala in ‘fight or flight’ mode. This isn’t conducive to a healthy culture! Co-creating music produces oxytocin, the ‘cuddle chemical’, which moves us into the prefrontal cortex where we can operate from a place of empathy and creativity. This is the perfect brain space for collaborating and building trust.

Since 2004, SongDivision has been called on by leading companies in over thirty countries to bond teams and communicate key messages using the universal language of music. Collaborative songwriting allows everyone to contribute regardless of their age, gender, culture, physicality, or position within the company.

For thousands of teams around the world, SongDivision is the most fun they’ve had – this is one of the reasons why it works. Harmonious teams make beautiful music – they’re more resilient in the face of change, turnover is reduced, and an inclusive environment nurtures ongoing innovation.

HOW DOES SONGDIVISION CONDUCT EACH SESSION?

Studies show that music increases levels of oxytocin (linked to bonding and developing trust) and dopamine (linked to happiness, memory, motivation and engagement).

We create highly interactive musical experiences over 90-minute sessions. You and your team will write hit songs while learning integral leadership and teamwork competencies. No musical experience is required.

These learning experiences are designed by experts in leadership strategy and behavioral research, and guided by SongDivision’s renowned facilitators, who’ve worked with everyone from John Legend to Miley Cyrus, and called on by Fortune 500’s around the world to bond their teams. No one is better at ensuring your people are happily off their phones and 100% engaged!
