Next time you build up “team-building” at a board meeting, you’ll see shoulders slump and expressions harden. Because nobody wants to spend their weekend drinking cold coffee at a damp corporate retreat before spending a day doing dull trust exercises and maybe a bit of paintball.
There is a better way to get your team shipshape, and that’s to take a leaf out of Greek history! The legendary Argonauts tackled every monster of mythology by working as a team, and that gave us a great idea.
Corporate Charter trips on our crewed luxury yacht!
Simply put, your corporate charter trip is going to make your team happier, more comfortable as a group, and determined to do a great job so that they can enjoy trips like this again in the future!
Spending time together outside of the workplace brings colleagues closer together. Shared experiences (especially an experience as enjoyable as this) mean that they find it easier to collaborate and share ideas, leading to more success in future.
And the morale benefits of a short trip on a luxury yacht can’t be overstated! What could possibly make people happier than a few days on the open sea, surrounded by beauty and with regular stops to enjoy one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations?
Just the thought of this trip will motivate people to work harder – and that’s before you let them know exactly what they’ll be getting up to when they arrive.
Unlike the Argonauts, your team won’t need to tackle a fearsome sea dragon. Instead, you’re going to enjoy some sun-soaked fun that will bring you closer as a team and help you all to build some solid working relationships:
The reason our yacht travels the crystal seas of the Ionian Islands is that it’s one of the world’s greatest places for water-sports. Windsurfing is always sure to raise a smile, but activities like scuba diving and snorkeling need your team to work together using the buddy system to make sure everyone has a safe, fun time. Plus there’s always the chance to do some fishing – and everyone prefers fresh seafood on the deck of a yacht to a soggy sandwich in a conference centre!
There’s plenty to do on dry land too. Would your team prefer a brisk hike across the stunning terrain of Greece, or an afternoon’s orienteering in a muddy field closer to home? I know which option would make me feel more engaged with my job and colleagues!
You’ll also get a chance to visit famous archaeological sites, and plan a whole variety of day excursions. If you can work together to plan a day trip on one of the islands, you’ll have no problem planning business activities when you get home.
And when you’ve finished your hike, there’s another fantastic reason to take your team on a charter trip…
Food and Culture
Here’s the kicker. If you decide on a corporate charter as the perfect team-building exercise for your company, you’re treating members of your team to the holiday of a lifetime.
You’re going to enjoy the hospitality of the friendliest people in the world, some of the finest food and wine available anywhere on Earth, and thousands of years of culture. When you and your team see the sun set from a lovely local restaurant, and raise a toast to the future success of your business, you’ll be convinced that you’ve made a great decision.
