Team building activities are essential for any organisation that aims to strengthen and develop trust and honesty among co-workers. Our team in Namibia recently participated in Wellness Day hosted by our Wellness Manager, Noluthando Nondabula.

On the 03 April 2014 the team spent the whole day at Von Bach dam in Okahandja, where fun and exciting activities such kayaking, trust games and ‘blind’ walks were conducted. The Star For Life Country Manager in Namibia Evelina Kalenga said these activities help colleagues to relate to each other while building trust, “Our team needs to come together as a team at some point and discuss challenges they are facing, sharing ideas and learn about each other’s weaknesses and strengths as this will help them to understand each other.”

Noluthando Nondabula said this year they decided to leave the office environment in order to create a more relaxed feel for the workshop. Sometimes the work of the Life Coaches can be very emotionally draining and they need to debrief and share the challenges they are facing with their team mates. “Team work and communication is always the key to any productive team, activities such as trust walks help to strengthen trust and honesty among team mates.”
Susan Uushona a Life Skills Coach in the Okahandja region said even though they work in different locations and schools, they still need to communicate with other colleagues. “Team building activities play a huge role when it comes to easing conflicts between colleagues and also help team mates to bond.”
