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
