Team Building – Team Work

Drum Circle Play Shop

Product Description

Drum Circle Play Shop

A Drum Circle Playshop (DCP) is a group of people having fun creating simple rhythmic parts on a chorus of tuned drums, percussion and musical instruments to create a dynamic music experience. DCP for Team Building provides uplifting and energising activities that allow all employees to feel empowered while building team spirit.

We use rhythm to explore and inspire group empowerment, leadership and community building. DCP builds leadership skills using the drum circle as a model and the many metaphors within. Participants will learn how to lead a successful rhythm-based event regardless of music background or pervious experience.

The language of rhythm is a powerful one that transcends verbal communication. Participants will utilise skills requiring concentration, listening skills and communication leading towards enhanced camaraderie among all staff. Through drumming, employees interact in new ways that transcend titles, and as a successful drumming event is created, all barriers of social and economic status are removed.

The ultimate outcome of this memorable experience will lead to better relationships among participants while increasing confidence and building trust.

  • Achieving a common goal together regardless of job hierarchy, department, race, religion or creed
  • Builds effective teams and empowers community

Although people have been drumming around the globe for as long as humanity has existed to express themselves, communicate, celebrate, facilitate ceremony, and to have fun, modern research has proven that drumming has yet another advantage – improving mental and physical health. That’s right, drumming is actually healthy for you and for your highly stressed workforce!Recent studies have shown that you increase your white blood cell count, strengthen your immune system, and reduce stress while drumming. A leader in this research is Remo®, who for over 50 years has produced award winning drums and percussion instruments. Results of their extensive research has shown that through group drumming:

  • Participants discover an inner strength and become empowered to move beyond their perceived boundaries and limitations
  • The immune system is strengthened by increasing Natural Killer (NK) cell activity (Bittman, Alternative Therapies, 2001), reversing multiple components of the human stress response on the genomic level, as well as 19 genetic switches that turn on the stress response believed responsible in the development of common diseases. (Bittman, Medical Science Monitor, 2005)
  • A subsequent study done by the same researcher showed that group drumming was able to dramatically reduce employee burnout, and subsequent turnover, among workers. Drumming initiatives are extremely cost effective and have the potential to save millions of dollars related to employee turnover.
  • Based on his book, The Healing Power of the Drum), Robert Lawrence Friedman, MA, talks about how drumming is used in treating at-risk adolescents, stressed-out employees, Vietnam veterans, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and more.

Many times , organisations fail to achieve their Vision, Mission and expected business culture because employees are not well, and thus are not performing at their peak level. By focusing on employee wellness, with special emphasis on emotional wellness, your employees will be able to manage their emotional issues and stress levels better, which usually hinder their performance. Therefore, the organisation’s Vision, Mission, Core Values and Service Charter will have a greater success potential for implementation when employees are well.

  • Set into motion the creation of a healthier, emotionally renewed and well-balanced productive workforce
  • Promote the understanding of stress management and anger management
  • Builds effective teams and empowers community
  • Enables employees to perform according to company’s culture without hindrances
  • Promotes creativity and “can-do” mindset
  • Opens minds to new ideas
  • Promotes self-confidence by removing fear
  • Promotes the concept of “teaching-without-teaching”
  • Facilitates communication – listening skills and body language
  • Builds trust and confidence Inspires community spirit and oneness towards a common goal

Managing Anger in the Workplace

Do you work with angry people? Do you know why they are angry? Do you know how to deal with them?

The workplace is an environment likely to provoke feelings of anger and the consequences of poorly managed anger in the workplace can range from increased staff turnover, lowering of staff morale and reduced productivity, to property damage and physical injury or worse. At the same time, if managed effectively, anger can be a positive and productive emotion producing valuable data, as well as considerable motivation.

  • Understanding anger as one of the most dangerous negative emotion
  • Understanding the process that leads to the “amygdala hijack”
    Dealing with your OWN anger
    Dealing with the angry individual
