Without a Doubt the REVOLUTIONARY WORKPLACE High Performance Teams Development System offers UNBEATABLE Value, Results, and ROI’s

Most smart companies understand that high performance teamwork, executive team buildings, or company team building days, and resilient, agile positive, happy mindsets, are vital for their ongoing success.

They also understand that:

  • happy people with the right mindsets matter;
  • leadership and culture have huge impacts in workplace performance, productivity, and profitability
  • that corporate team building workshops costs are an investment.

Success for any company comes down to how well the team performs together. Formal Team building is important to build a connected, creative, collaborative, cohesive, functional, motivated, and happy… high performance workplace team that thrives in tough times and delivers outstanding results. 

Staff team building events, and activities, costs vary dependent on a number of factors. These include the type of team development program, group size, duration, depth of facilitation, facilitation expertise, and quality of venue. 

So what is the cost of team building training…how much does corporate team building cost on average, or per person? 


The prices for corporate office team building or team bonding days can range anywhere from R6000 to R60,000.  It could workout to be almost FREE!

Team building prices could almost be free?  How…?    

Yip  – if you turn it into an INVESTMENT into your People, Teams, Leadership and Culture …an intelligent, proven optimisation process.

How about the possibility that your management team building events’ impacts and results are so good that your Return on Investment is more than 20x to 100x the event cost? 

Eg One client invested R85k for a full High Performance teams weekend PROCESS, and boosted their annual business from R200 Million to almost R800 Million revenue!

It all depends upon a variety of important factors – like Fun or Formal. Frivolous or Focused. High Performance or Happy Hopefulls.

Essentially the higher your budget the more choice you have, and the better the quality and results of the facilitation, and debriefing process. The number of people in your group also impacts costs. The cheaper group events are more fun oriented, with lower value, impact and sustainability. 

You will find that the benefits and outcomes of investing in a Consciously Constructive high performance workplace program will far exceed the financial cost of delivery.


Fun Team Building companies offer paintball, fooseball, boere sports, firewalking, or Go-Karting as “teambuilding” but that turns out to be light Bonding, and not a true corporate TEAM Building event, nor a high performance company team development process. 


So what is the cost of team building training…how much does corporate team building cost on average, or per person?

Those fun team activity days can be cheap… but you need to have someone expertly skilled to facilitate your front-loading, facilitation, and debriefing, since you risk increasing conflicts and competition contamination mindsets.   I have seen a team completely break down due to the “Legal and FUN” intentional hurting, of some people in a paint ball war! 

These cheap and extreme competition group events do more harm than truly building trust, connection, collaboration, communication and commitment. 

After all you are spending money to generate some kind of positive value, change, and hopefully, if you are smart, some measurable return on your time and money investment.

What Are Your Team and Workplace Dysfunctions Costing You? At very least 10% of monthly salary bill!

Think for a moment, what are these team and people dysfunctions actually costing the people, the team, the organisation?

If you calculate all the costs, you will come to a number in the tens of THOUSANDS or even Millions!  Calculate roughly 10% to 12% of your monthly salary bill x 12… That is what you a typically losing from conflicts, disengagement and demotivation, annually, right now.


The question is…How much will a HPO Team Building process save us or make for us?

Many companies try to skimp or “save” money to reduce team building prices, by using in-house resources.

Here’s the challenge – If you use you internal staff, are they at the WORLD-CLASS level of performance, facilitation, expertise…?

The hard reality is you get what you pay for… and seldom more.  

With in-house staff you have, engagement challenges, personal challenges, workplace politics, conflicts, culture contamination, limited skills/ expertise, and passion/commitment, to ensure results is lower. If they could have done it…ie fix the problems, it would already be fixed!

Whereas with a professional external service provider or team building coach, you have a much wider range of exposure, experience, and expertise. An external provider is neutral within the politics and tribes of your organisation. 

And an external eye often sees stuff that internal people live with every day, and so overlook it. An external team comes with higher levels of quality, focus, commitment, passion, expertise, and performance

So does company team building work? Do team building activities work and impacts last? – It depends upon whether you use a professional service provider or a cheaper fun option.

REAL High Performance Team Development is an INCREDIBLE INVESTMENT

If our corporate and company High Performance Team Building interventions and workshops deliver the above benefits… it’s clear that the VALUE gained from this process is in the tens to hundreds of thousands. 

So the small cost of team building that delivers real value, is a tiny price to pay. Actually INVEST. This is only valid if you do REAL team development, and not just some fun group games, that deliver very little sustainable value. 

Make your decisions around VALUE… not just the cost. The behaviour and discussions and alignment and then the cost can be related to the expected ROI. 

Doing something that doesn’t change anything is a pure lost cost, no matter how low the cost!  Cutting corners and choosing the cheapest option does not go unnoticed. Is cheap and uninspiring in line with your brand?
