Breaking Barriers

Experience a Breakthrough!

Program Overview

We like to keep things fresh and exciting here at TeamBonding. Teams evolve, we evolve. That is why we’re bringing you a new team building exercise, the unique and inspiring Breaking Barriers program.  Karate experts spend years developing the skills to smash through boards and blocks with their bare hands. At this very popular event, adults or adolescents can learn and achieve that skill in an hour.

Everyone in the session will use a one-inch thick, twelve-inch square wood board as a metaphor for the obstacles and barriers we often put in our way to keep us from achieving our goals. Participants will then break through the board, using either their hand or their foot, as a physical metaphor for breaking through their barriers and achieving greatness in their life.

Through presenter-led discussion, participants will determine for themselves their own barriers. They’ll choose one barrier that they are committed to working on, and write that barrier on their board. Examples of barriers include fear of failure, procrastination, fear of rejection, fear of success, addictions etc. On the other side of the board, they will write the outcomes they will achieve or gain in their life, once they have committed to breaking through the barrier.

Close your event in a powerfully memorable way so everyone walks out the door inspired to take action like never before with Breaking Barriers!

After all participants have broken through their barriers, the process can be debriefed with participants having an opportunity to share their experiences with each other if they so choose. Some companies only want this activity as a roaring finish to a great day of meetings. Others invite our trainers to share inspirational messages and content aligned with a desired theme or message.
