Come Fly With Me

It cannot be stressed enough how important a great, happy team is to the success of a business. Team building activities can be an excellent way to bring the team together by building a sense of trust and unity, improving communication amongst its members, enhancing job satisfaction by making staff feel valued, and therefore increasing overall performance.

In fact, studies have found that team building can have measurable, positive effects on team performance, and after all, a connected team is a motivated team, and happy staff are productive staff.

The purpose of team building is to bring the team closer together through an event that is fun and motivational, and when you arrange something that everyone enjoys and works well with, you’ll come out with a real sense of achievement.

However, poorly thought out, cliché and mundane activities will often have the adverse effect and if you feel you’ve done the old catch a trusting colleague as they fall game one too many times, or anything else as equally awkward, its time to shake up your team building.

Successful team building and personal development should be built around taking people out of their comfort zone, and Red Baron Adventures are all about getting you out of the comfort zone by flipping your world upside-down – quite literally, in fact.

While they’re renowned as Sydney’s premier flying school and aerobatic specialists, offering thrilling flights over the harbour and beyond, Red Baron Adventures’ Fear-Less Leadership Workshop is unlike any other, combating the one thing that holds us all back from performing to our full potential and reaching our absolute peak – fear.

“Whether its related to our personal relationships, finances, creativity, physical limits, or professional goals, we all experience fear from time to time, and the Fear-Less Workshop is specifically designed to combat and break through these limiting barriers through challenging the fear with experience,” Red Baron motivational speaker and pilot Amir Zoghi says.

More than just a motivational talk, the two-hour workshop recognises and explores each individual’s fear, or limiting barrier, and then designs a tailor-made, adrenalin-inducing aerobatic flight reflecting these personal challenges, for an exhilarating way to overcome the anxieties that hold us back in everyday life. Simply put, its experiential learning in its highest capacity.

The concept is, that by understanding what fear is and knowing how to harness the courage to push our limits and overcome it, we ultimately break down the barriers to unlock innovation, creativity, and great leadership.

“I believe life is experienced at its fullest when we are out of our comfort zone, and we show people life and the world upside-down – the experience is powerful and the impact in your team and business is immediate.”
