This session facilitated open communication, allowing team members to learn from one another’s experiences and explore opportunities for collaboration.
The retreat seamlessly blended learning and fun through a series of team-building activities. The “2 Truths and a Lie” game tested team members’ knowledge of each other, fostering camaraderie while revealing interesting facts about individual personalities. The “Pick a Cup” challenge showcased the surprising agility of the senior-most employee, emphasizing the importance of diverse skills within the team. Bible quizzes, aligning with the firm’s Christocentric approach, added a spiritual dimension to the activities.
A unique cooking session of Jollof and Banku required all team members to contribute to the preparation of meals, promoting collaboration and teamwork. This interactive cooking experience not only showcased culinary skills but also emphasized the importance of collective effort.
Recreation and Leisure
To balance the intense team-building activities, moments of relaxation and leisure were strategically incorporated. The movie show provided a refreshing break from the business environment, fostering informal interactions and meaningful connections among team members. An exercise and stretch-out session followed the next morning which allowed members to rejuvenate with light jogging around the serene East-Legon neighbourhood.
The Joy Feast 2023 retreat was more than just a gathering; it was a transformative experience that strengthened the bonds among Kabod Group team members.
