Introduction As a student who is studying outdoor recreation I am actively involved in various parts of organisations training days. I have learnt that the experience does not have just extrinsic benefits, but a lot of intrinsic benefits, so I felt that the research that is done in this project will be very rewarding. In this day of new age thinking many successful companies now benefit from motivating their company team. Now more than ever it is vital to create an achievement ethic. Teams building days are an everyday occurrence in the modern world companies, so its important those all that attend gain as much as possible.

This activity summarises the day with a good team building exercise in which every member is heavily involved. There is a lot planning to the exercise, with need for large area to be used. There is big safety element to the exercise as it situated on water; extra staff will be needed (staffing problem) Debrief- A debrief is done after every activity, but at this stage of the team building day this is a chance for all the groups to critically reflect on the day. This will be done in a class session in which the groups would fill out a questionnaire and a spider diagram with discussion with people that ran the activities. This is where the participants can use what they learnt on the day and try and transfer into their workplace so they can increase productivity. Questions that the participants should reflect on are: - * What was done well? * What has done badly? * What would you have changed if you had to do it again? * How can I use what I learnt and put in to work situations?
