European team building

The Team Building European Championships

Looking beyond has taught us that with ideas we can overcome borders and play our team building Europeans championships by expanding horizons and perspectives.

The individual experiences allow us from time to time to enlarge the network of possibilities we have, to give new motivation to many companies that, especially at this moment, need to find the right incentives to restart.

The digital world has become an opportunity, a challenge that we have chosen to accept and ride to continue bringing team building activities to all companies that could benefit from it. Thanks to this evolution, which has allowed us to make something that seemed impossible to achieve, the requests we receive are significantly diversifying.

The choice to take new paths and new roads, sometimes with an unpredictable ending, was the best decision we could have made.

The matching of our services to business needs has become independent of the place in which they were to be performed, whether digital or across the territorial border.

The “Italian national team” of Corefab thus began to play its Team Building European Championships even before Euro2020.

Thanks to the collaboration with Domitys, a company that has been taking care of people for years, we have started to bring the format dedicated to those who work daily with the most fragile people, even beyond our borders, reaching as far as France.

In these places, surrounded by the need for a peaceful future, we passed the baton to a friend of Corefab, a person who over the years has overwhelmed us with her passion for the constant search for an inclusive and sustainable life.

Victoire Gouloubi, chef, trainer, and tireless mother. Of Congolese origin, she adores her land, of which she intelligently divulges customs, culture, and products. She is a curious traveler, and she believes that a dish, to be such, must be international as well as embrace memories, territories, and link continents, as in an imaginary flight.

Victoire has brought Corefab’s soul to French soil, with the experience and expertise that in these years of great work and social commitment has placed her at the forefront of dealing with issues related to care and attention for others.

Care and attention that we are reserving for this daring “European championship” of team building, that once again pushed us beyond the imaginable. A new approach to digital tools has given us an edge that not even we could have imagined.

In fact, our journey continued beyond all borders to face a beautiful new challenge requested by a well-known multinational company, where managers and employees from all over the world were involved.

(All the world, sick!)

And to reach them we only had one move: a click!

Thanks to the superpower of digital, all the participants challenged each other online at the first Quiz Show on the European Football Championships.

Using experience, stubbornness, passion and motivation, our Marco Menoncello, creator of the show, has created a connection network so vast that it reaches the most remote corner of the globe, thus building an unparalleled virtual football challenge.

A kick to the ball and with the speed of a BIT we returned to Italy, and precisely to the University of Rome, where thanks to the support of Professor Vittorio Cesarotti (Director of the Executive MBA Rome “Tor Vergata”) it was possible to recreate the Drink&Draw format online under the expert guidance of Guido Groppi, CEO of vinodalproduttore.it.

The involved teams, i.e., students of an MBA from the Roman university, analyzed a likely case of a company in significant economic crisis and for which they had to find a strategy to improve its fortunes while avoiding bankruptcy.

An unfortunately common case history in this historical moment, that allowed all participants to propose a possible and concretely achievable solution, also based on the useful elements provided by Guido Groppi, exploiting the world of wine and its commercial dynamics.

Our journey beyond the borders of Corefab will continue during this hot summer, returning to northern Italy and precisely to Reggio Emilia in the setting of the Maltidico Park of Montalto, where the Director and Event Manager of theMercure Astoria Hotelwill be waiting for us to speak, during a new event of team building, about a market that is finally recovering and wants to get back to work.

New scenarios, restarting markets and Corefab has chosen to be there again.

Beyond borders, beyond walls and barriers, we have decided to go and look further and further, making sure that our message is used as an aggregator to rekindle contacts and opportunities.

We decided to put the ball in the center and give it a new kick-off, playing this match in different ways that officially mark the beginning of a new era.

#weareallessential only if we understand that the market has changed, and the new imminent future will acquire more advanced shapes, influenced by what has happened in the last two years.

Shapes to which we must be ready, prepared, and good to interpret them and make them our own.

Are you ready to take the field?

Looking beyond. Care in relationships as a positive stimulus.

The great journey of Corefab in the study of effective solutions for companies sometimes takes different paths and variations from the original ones. This happens when we take a moment to think about how team building activities can be of great support even for different market segments from those that usually turn to us.

Thus, from a careful analysis of the resources that Corefab could make available to meet the silver economy market, was born our new project, aimed at those who dedicate their professional life to the care of people with social frailties.

Those who take care of people and their care need to always be able to receive stimuli that allow them to see beyondsimple work, capturing the most important aspects related to sensitivityhumanity, and continuous growth.

The role of Corefab, on this occasion, has therefore become even more important. Therefore, we decided to surround ourselves with partners with a particular attention to both the issues discussed and the objective linked to mutual trust, in order to improve the quality of relationships.

A great friend of Corefab was involved, Daniele Cassioli, (Marco Menoncello and Daniele Cassioli in the past collaborated for the theatrical show “La Svista”) multiple world champion in water skiing, member of the national council of the Italian Paralympic Committee, president of Real Eyes Sport(non-profit sports association) as well as company trainer and author of the book “Il Vento Contro”.

Daniele, through a training course dedicated to companies, brings his history and experience as a blind sportsman, transforming reality into a wonderful journey through the use and stimulation of all the senses, highlighting how our instinct makes us exploit only a small percentage of our potential.

Alongside Daniele, in addition to Corefab’s internal staff with Chiara Marelli, facilitator at a worktable and Marco Menoncello, coordinator of the entire activity, we have combined other professionals:

Samantha Zintu, head of corporate training for Poleposition.tech and Laura Bricola, professional educator.

For this mission, joining forces was essential.

Based on these premises and with a new challenge to face, together with Samantha and Daniele we created a new format, adapting one of our team building activities and declining it for the Domitys staff, a reality that has been providing for years (both in Italy and in France) housing structures in which the elderly can live in safety, without giving up their spaces, privacy and simplifying the lifestyle, thanks to the constant support of a team of professionals and collaborators.

The team building activity began with Orietta Coppi, General Manager of Domitys, who, thanks to the deep knowledge of her staff, allowed us to create the right teams so that they could get the best result from the experience they were about to discover.

Therefore, starting from the great theme of Care, important for all those who work in the health field, 4 macro categories were identified from which to start for the proposed activity:

  • Creativity
  • Communication
  • Economics
  • Motivation

Within these 4 areas it was important to focus on achieving the key goal of the day:

taking care of yourself increases the possibility of taking care of others, improving the management of relationships in daily life.

With all the hinges fixed, the challenge begun.

Daniele opened the games with a motivational speech aimed at raising attention to the countless opportunities given by the sense organs available to the human body, considering that all the members of each team would have been deprived of one of these: sight.

“But do not worry, being deprived of sight will allow you to look beyond” – Daniele Cassioli

With only the use of touch and smell, then carrying out the activity blindfolded, everyone was asked to open a mysterious box where the participants found equipment and materials to build something that represented the characteristics of the “ideal place” for each component of the team.

At the end of the activity, the eyes protection was removed, and everyone told their own paper, making sure that the message transferred to those present could describe, without fear, the sensations that the challenge had aroused.

The result was beyond expectations.

Many of the participants (from the same team) built a heart without the others knowing.

We saw hands and bridges, symbols of opportunity and growth. Exactly the goals we set ourselves and which they arrived at in a natural and spontaneous way.

The first half of the match had already brought out the right stimuli to face the second part of the day.

A short online questionnaire sent in the interval between the first and the second half brought out all the emotions with which the participants had faced the activity and allowed to kick off the afternoon intervention held by Samantha, which led to the entire team to reflect on the importance of working at their best, in an atmosphere of sharing and serenity.

If it is true that #weareallessential, to be such the attitude must therefore be positive and aimed at sharing, just as this short and intense day was, in every moment.

It has become clear and tangible that awareness of caring for interpersonal relationships is also reflected directly on the most fragile and needy people, both in a facility for the elderly like Domitys, and in other situations where attention to others must always remain high.

The team now has an extra tool to look beyond, to see with the heart, hands, emotions.
