Team Building

Because of this unique facility’s layout and our philosophical approach for comprehensive youth development, the ContactPoint Horizons is an ideal location to produce a variety of programs aimed to develop and strengthen teammate interactions, relationships and collaborations.

Work­shop FAQs

Q:  How are work­shops struc­tured?

A:  Work­shops begin with fun ice-break­ers.  Then we use small group activ­i­ties and dynam­ic cre­ation to stir things up.  All the rest depends on who you are and what your goals are!  Here are some of the themes and explo­rations that we can build into your expe­ri­ence:

v  team build­ing & build­ing trust v  who are we?
v  break­ing down bar­ri­ers v  who do we want to be?
v  hav­ing FUN v  where are we strong?
v  respect & appre­ci­a­tion v  where are we stuck?
v  lead­ing & fol­low­ing v  what are our goals & dreams?

Q:  What tech­niques are used?

A:  Depends on age, and what you want to try out!  Activ­i­ties & meth­ods are all hands-on.  And usu­al­ly while we are mov­ing, on our feet!  Tools that we use include:  ice-break­ers, move­ment games, word play, dis­cus­sion, and inter­ac­tive group exer­cis­es.  All of it is fun, high-ener­gy, dynam­ic, inten­sive and par­tic­i­pa­to­ry!

Q:  How long are work­shops?

A:  Work­shops are 2 hours.  We can also cre­ate week­end inten­sives or a series of ses­sions.

 Q:  Who runs the work­shops?

A:  Work­shops are facil­i­tat­ed by Ken Horn­beck and Debra Vidali.  Ken Horn­beck brings over 30 years of expe­ri­ence as a teacher and prac­ti­tion­er in applied the­ater and com­mu­ni­ty con­flict res­o­lu­tion.  He has worked through­out Europe, Africa, the Mid­dle East and the US.  Youth and young adult empow­er­ment is his pri­ma­ry focus.  Dr.Debra Vidali brings over 25 years of expe­ri­ence as an anthro­pol­o­gist and edu­ca­tor.  Since 2009 she has been using ethnog­ra­phy and phys­i­cal the­ater tech­niques to acti­vate well-being, civic engage­ment and com­mu­ni­ty dia­logues.  Both Vidali and Horn­beck are fac­ul­ty mem­bers at Emory Uni­ver­si­ty.  Their projects include:  Being Real:  A Vision of Com­mu­ni­ty; Re-Gen­er­a­tion; Slices of Time; and In & Out of Bal­ance.
