Build Cohesiveness in Corporate Training Programs

 

Many of the courses that I teach span multiple days. As such, I find it very important to build cohesiveness among the participants. They frequently work together in small groups, so I like to ensure that the participants feel connected. Here are some of the things that have helped me to build that cohesiveness in my corporate training programs:

 

1. Set the participants up in close proximity—without overcrowding!

 

2. Create an identity for each small group (e.g., a name, a color, a location in the room, or a nickname).

 

3. Set up mild competition between the groups so a “team” feeling can develop.

 

4. Have some occasional playtime where the only goal is to have some fun for a few minutes—make fun and laughter a legitimate activity!!

 

5. Create some kind of positive ending to the program (e.g., class party, dinner, applause, awards, class picture, etc.)

 

What are some of the ways that you build cohesiveness into your corporate training programs?
