Team Building & Communication
African Drumming as a metaphor
Mechanisms of Communication – I didn’t say anything, if you know what I mean.
Working with Similarities & Differences – I’m an individual, just like everybody else.
Managing Innovation – what do you do when you don’t know what you’re doing?
Planned and intuitive collaboration – my plan is, “I have no plan.”
Recognising leadership – if I don’t know what I’m doing, who does?
Through the workshop experience participants can come to realise
the significance of non-verbal communication
how to express individuality whilst collaborating with others
mindfulness can be used as a circuit breaker to stress
focus on similarities can help to keep things together
focus on differences can make things more interesting
The workshop emphasises fun and inclusion, collaboration and self-efficacy, with no need for familiarity with drumming or any other music.
Each group member is allocated a particular rhythm pattern to play, and thus becomes part of a team, the members of which collaborate with each other.
Each team then collaborates with the other team(s) to create an interconnection of rhythms forming a unique metaphor for social productivity and harmony.
There are strong connections with the keys of positive psychology:
Belonging and connection
Engagement and communication
