Team Building Days

For companies and groups looking for new ways to increase the effectiveness of their staff, Coghlans team building days use cookery as a means of improving performance. With a firm emphasis on fun in a learning environment, the practical and informative days help boost staff moral while encouraging teamwork and communication.

On our team building days we look to build confidence and team work through the practical medium of cooking. We look to strengthen communication between the students and also to highlight strengths within individuals. At the same time we can concentrate on any individual weaknesses which will enhance team performance.

We find that the team building process is enhanced by the fruition of tasks, satisfaction is drawn from the ability to see cookery recipes through from beginning to the finished article. Students often feel refreshed by the change of environment from their comfort zone. They also feel motivated and rewarded with an enjoyable day which enables them to communicate with members of the team, which they may not have bonded with in the work environment.

We hope that individuals benefit from the day but that the team benefits more, by the increased communication that is developed, the rewards of completing a task outside of their comfort zone and the opportunity to assess individual within a team environment.

Companies can choose from a wide range of topics, from cooking for friends, to making pasta, desserts and chocolate - and an exercise in food and wine matching.
