The best work is often achieved out of the office, here are 11 reasons why...

Leave the office behind and brainstorm under blue sky. Meetings at Combe Grove, a luxury hotel, restaurant, spa and club, near Bath, really do bring a fresh perspective. Enjoy time away from the office that allows clarity of thought. Add to this the opportunity to re-energise the team with outdoor activities, good food and space to breathe and you will see the results unfold. The setting can offer meeting rooms and grounds for outdoor activities.

The best work is often achieved out of the office, here are 11 reasons why...

Team work: Learning how to work together effectively will create efficiency and knowledge on how to manager each other’s strengths and weaknesses.

Communication: It helps break down barriers in communication and also how to better utilise both verbal and non-verbal forms of communication.

Leadership: It can identify leadership qualities in individuals and highlight areas where all staff can contribute as leaders.

Fun: This benefit is often overlooked but I believe is one of the most important to have in any workplace.

Bonding: It provides the opportunity to learn about each other and grow respect for each other in a non-threatening and fun environment.

Confidence: Being in a comfortable and non-threatening situation will help to develop confidence in yourself and others.

Responsibility: It will reinforce how taking responsibility and providing responsibility are both vital contributors to team performance.

Trust: You will learn strengths, weaknesses, capabilities and fears, with these contribute to a deeper relationship and trust amongst team members.

Morale: It can often identify barriers to positive morale and highlight strategies to create more fun and positivity in day-to-day work.

Respect: Participants can gain greater respect for not only each other but also for the company and its direction. Often this comes down to communication and knowledge, and when delivered in a fun and relaxed environment, greater respect will be a result.

Culture: It can help to reinforce the values and vision of a company and can contribute to the overall organisational culture. Sometimes it may actually evolve a culture.
