Corporate Team Building Program

Lakeshore Sail Charters, in conjunction with our Chicago based team building consultants, offers a unique teambuilding experience on the Tall Ship Red Witch designed for:

  • Managers, supervisors and their employees
  • Corporate teams
  • Leadership retreats
  • Networking Opportunities

Sailing requires effective leadership, teaming, group problem solving and communication skills and provides you and your group an opportunity to have a unparallelled learning experience to focus on personal and organizational goals. Aboard the Redwitch co-workers must abandon pre-existing relationships and solve problems together - as a team.

These team building trips are designed trips are dynamic, interactive and safe, allowing individuals, teams and organizations to learn to sail, work together to achieve their goals and to have fun. If you're new to sailing, you will quickly see and feel how being on the water and in touch with nature is special. Learning to sail naturally enhances self-confidence and teamwork. And during a midday or evening break your group's interpersonal relationships, communication skills, cooperation, and self-confidence will be explored through stories, discussions and team building exercises.

Our team building program utilizes a variety of training and organizational development tools and resources to accomplish your organizational goals. Working with trained organizational consultants each program starts with a needs assessment to determine your vision of success and then a program is designed to meet and exceed this vision.

Frequent topics of discussion both during and after the program are:
  • What hidden barriers do we all acknowledge that inhibit us working together better?
  • How do we maintain this level of cooperation back in the office?
  • Once we clearly understood our roles, and each other's roles, everything was much smoother. Could this be why we are having trouble with 'XYZ problem' at the office?

Each program is unique, because you and your team have specific goals to accomplish. Let Lakeshore Sail Charters and their team building consultant design a sailing program that meets your organizational goals and have participants talking about this program for years to come.

We are eager to offer such a professional training opportunity aboard our Tall Ship. If you are interested, please call for information and details.
