Team Samurai: The Art of Teamwork
Our instructors have more than twenty years of experience in teaching the martial arts, meditation, and of course, team building. Team Samurai can be conducted as a either a half or full-day event.
Team Samurai is grounded by that which is the very essence of the martial arts energy. In China, this energy is known as Chi. While the English language lacks a word that adequately captures its essence, we experience the power of chi every day in everything we do. Chi can be described as yin or yang. It can further be characterized by the five elements: Fire, earth, metal, water, and wood.
In Team Samurai, participants will experience the martial arts through various forms of energy or chi. Throughout the session, we will related these concepts to the workplace. For example, some elements, and therefore some people, flow like water and others burn themselves out like fire. Some are patient like Earth, and others are opportunistic like wood. Some are exacting like metal and others are haphazard like fire.
Participants will also learn
about the various mind states of the martial arts, Mind of Moon, Mind of
Mirror and Mind of Water and how these mind states reflect themselves in
our personal habits and in the workplace. For example, some teams and
leaders are so tactical (Mind of Mirror) that they miss the big picture
(Mind of Moon). Other teams operate at such as fast-pace, that they fail
to flow like Water and optimize their success.
Meditation has always been an important aspect of the martial arts.
In fact, it is said that where the mind goes, the energy flows. Your
team has the option of incorporating a Meditation 101component
into Team Samurai. With todays fast-paced world, learning the basics
of mediation provides useful relaxation techniques as a tool for stress
management and increased focus. Imagine your team collectively learning
how to turn down the volume on workplace stress. How would that impact
morale, job satisfaction, and performance?
