The scent of a winning team

There is no better way to learn teamwork than through a strong scented example!

Are you looking for a unique and creative way to build your team, where staff misunderstandings and the associated emotional stressors are not the order of your day?

When working alone, your decisions are solely yours; when in a group, the dynamic changes from ‘you’ to ‘us’. Collaborative efforts require a different touch, a different taste, a different scent…

This one-day teambuilding workshop takes the more strategic aspects of understanding behavioural styles into an exercise where men and women alike are assigned a task to create a unique scent, something that represents the personality of the team as a whole. Team members are tasked with perfume product creation, design, marketing, sales and presentation, and examines amongst others team cohesion, delegation and conflict handling.

This novel approach of scent creation in a workshop environment takes attendees out of their comfort zones, parading away from traditional team working exercises where the most powerful sense which is that of olfaction is harnessed.

Did you know that the sense of smell is the only one of our five senses that is directly connected to the part of the brain that processes emotion, memory and associative learning? In fact, you are 100 times more likely to remember something that you smell than something that you see, hear or touch. (The Smell Institute)
