Tired Of Team Building Activities Where You Don’t Learn Anything?

The 1st Floor Challenge - T1FC
Team building activities are generally used in companies to develop cooperation between team members. An effective team is an integral part of the company’s success. But when we look at the team building activities that are currently on the market, we find some that are simply ridiculous or boring. Some are just fun, it’s good to play paintball, tug of war, a game with balloons, but deep down they don’t really improve performance in a team-based environment.

The 1st Floor Challenge, #T1FC, is a workshop different from any you’ve ever done. It’s a Team Building activity created for learning and practice Project Management, Sustainability, and Innovation. In this workshop forget the long hours of monotonous explanations. We believe learning should be as compelling as your favourite game! In only one day, you’ll learn how to manage a team project like a pro, and a chance to fly your own drone.

How does #T1FC build an effective team?

To build an effective team, T1FC team members:

  • Share a common goal,
  • Each participant should play a role in the team, using their strengths to achieve their objectives,
  • Can practice communication and collaboration for improve performance,
  • Must generate motivation, commitment to achieve satisfaction,
  • Must have respect for each other,
  • Can practice brainstorming, creativity, feedback, trust,
  • Exercising interpersonal aspects needed for a project, such as: leadership, teamwork, decision making, communication and negotiation,
  • Learn from experience when confronted with problem solving, organizational development and conflict resolution.

Implement your knowledge in a real project, by managing your team’s drone building, and be proud of your project when you see it fly!

How Quality Are You?

Are you interested in quality management?

Quality is omnipresent. In every company, we must pay attention how do we work and where do we put our resources. But what does really make your company being quality? How can we measure it? I will try to help you find the answer.

“Quality… you know what it is, yet you don’t know what it is.” – Pirsig, 1974

Why is so hard to define the quality? Because the quality for everyone has a different level and direction. An example? For some a good quality is a cheap bar with the big portions of food, others to
feel the quality needs the 5* of Michelin, and yet another group will say, the best quality has a kitchen of their grandma. Quality depends on our expectation, and one is sure: those are always going to be higher.

Then are we able to talk about great quality if expectations always grow? Yes. Thus every time when we improve something, we create higher quality. Of course, with a time the quality is dropping, so the answer is: never stop develop. How? I will present it in 6 easy steps.

1) Define your goals
Quality management includes many patches, such an improving processes by reducing waste, efficient customer service or lowering costs. Only you will know what is quality for you and your customers.

2) Analyse past and present
To improve present is not enough to see what we have right now. Compare, find the differences. It will help you to see wrong or maybe good decisions, which you took.

3) Plan how to improve
You know already your goals and situations. Think how to reach your goals, open your mind. Create few scenarios and choose can be best.

4) Do
Well, I cannot add anything here, just ACT what you have planned!

5) Check
Measure if your effects are right with your goals and your plan. If yes- well done! No? Then start from the beginning, maybe try smaller steps.

6) Repeat!
Without repeat previous 5 steps we will not be able to change our quality for better.

But quality exist not only in companies, it has an influence also in our personal lives. Try, do 6 steps above and check how quality you are. We are working for better life, better life makes us motivated to work. We see the great effects. It’s how I call: The Quality Life Cycle!
