ZF-Teambuilding weekend

From 13 to 15 March 2015 a small group of 15 members from our team met for a common weekend in Saxon Switzerland. Longtime expert Frank Ross (ZF) taught the group under the topic of teamwork. Already at the very first evening the participants had to prove their skills to work as a team. The task was to prepare an amazing dinner within in short time period. The focus here was always on the goal-oriented time management, costs, distribution of the tasks and creating an open atmosphere. Early Saturday morning, the group was confronted with finding solutions to tricky and complex tasks. Especially interesting has been the evaluation of the methodology to find a common solution. The relaxed atmosphere among the group ensured an open discussion, in which everyone could freely express their opinion. Every solved tasks led the team finding point by point more parallels to the real life scenario as a team. The participants looked for new innovative ideas by means of a variety of creative techniques to find solution which can be implanted within Elbflorace.
On the last day of the weekend the group undertook a summit trip to the famous „Bastei Bridge“ fairly close to Rathen. All the ideas, which had been found as well as the personal interaction between the members of this weekend made this trip to memorable adventure.
Very positive was the outstanding performance of our beloved ZF presenter. He created the basis on which the ideas could be spread among the group. Another aspect that should not be forgotten is the „Inn Ochelbaude“, which had been newly renovated and sheltered us comfortably.
