Teams are found in nature, in businesses and of course in sport. Football is probably the best-known and most-watched team sport, in any case in Europe. The success and failure of football teams show us the importance of teamwork.
Welcome to Kambaka
Be inspired by nature
The strength of a team depends on various factors, like the focus on a shared goal, the willingness of each team member to cooperate and the proper division of tasks – the right person in the right place.
Nature shows us what successful teamwork looks like. Ants divide the workload, fish swim in schools, starlings fly in swarms and wolves cooperate in packs. None of these animals succeed on their own.
The same is true for humans. We know very well that we need each other to achieve our goals and live a happy life. We are members of our family, many of us play a sport in a team and we work in professional teams. We flourish in teams.
When analysing what successful teams have in common, the following five characteristics come to the surface:
- Mutual trust between the team members.
- Acceptance of conflicts and respectful discussions with a clear outcome.
- Transparency of the goals and commitment to them.
- Willingness to take responsibility and to confront team members who don't.
- Increased clarity on target-orientation.
Kambaka Nature Team Coaching uses the power of nature to work with teams on these five topics. The results are amazing and lasting.
Latest from our Blog
The red kite is a beautiful medium-large bird of prey. Most of the surviving birds live in Europe, although their presence differs. In Switzerland, the population is stable at the moment, according to most sources but when I look at the sky, I have the feeling that their number is increasing.
Our blogs form part of a number of short stories where wilderness and nature experiences can be found. They can serve you to remind that observing wilderness restores you, coaches you and inspires you to create your world, day in and day out “nature” is coaching us. This blog is about the importance to find yourself and be active in the right environment where flow and providence move.
What our clients say
After knowing Robin as a guide and coach for many years, I can say he is one of the most calm, knowledgable and approachable leaders I know. His ability to help you see the smaller details within a bigger picture is a real skill. I have learnt a huge amount from Robin and will continue to do so with each meeting.
