JaRa's Team Building Training with Association 'FOR YOU'

 

On a Friday morning the table football team JaRa came together to gain new knowledge about teamwork and motivation with the help of Association FOR YOU. Our colleague Dillyana and our volunteer Lelde from Riga helped conducted the training. The training started with little getting to know each other and introduction about the upcoming day. After first activities and tasks it was time for a little rest and energiser. It gave them the opportunity to move a bit and to fully wake up as the first part of the training everyone felt a little bit sleepy.

JaRa members started exchaning ideas.

 

Right after this JaRa club members jumped in the theme of teamwork. They explored the true meaning of these words and went deeper in different types of team structures. It followed with a task - to define what is the exact structure of their team. This at the beginning so easy task turned to be harder than anyone thought. Because each of the team members had their own idea about the team and how it should be.

 

 

After long discussions it was finally time for lunch break when everyone could fill up their hunger with tasty and filling pizzas. When all the stomachs were full it was time to transform into superheroes - each participant was asked to imagine that they were superheroes and to draw themselves and to describe what kind of superpowers they had. And they had to put their superpowers into actions when the next task came.

 

JaRa's trainer Ivan talking about team work.

 

Team was supposed to plan a sport competition. The choice to plan exactly table football competition was more than obvious, but nonetheless it was not that easy. They had to think about all the aspects of competitions - from time, date, length, target audience until financing and task distribution.

 

Talking with Zoya Chavdarova - Bulgarian Paraolympic tennis champion.

 

They did a good job and made really thoughtful plan for upcoming JaRa competitions. As the last but not the least part in training was visit of a professional paraolympic tennis champion Zoya Chavdarova, who shared her experience in the tennis court and outside it and also with the problems she has to face as a sportist.

Our colleague Dilyana - a trainer and psychologist helping team JaRa with long-time planning.

This day gave insight in what really means teamwork and how to work in condition when not all team members have the needed motivation.
