Breaking Barriers

EVERYONE breaks through.

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.

We can be our “own worst enemy”when we let self-imposed barriers stand in our way. Sometimes, what stops us are matters outside our control, but, ultimately, we have more power over creating success in our lives than we think. In this program participants will literally break through the barriers that have been holding them back. 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.

Have your team Breaking Barriers at your next event!

Ideal For
  • Gaining self-awareness of barriers team members put into their own lives.
  • Getting motivated to take positive action to overcome their barriers.
  • Increasing confidence in their ability to accomplish goals.
  • Taking on the “If I can do this, I can do ANYTHING!” attitude.

Every event is custom designed for each client. 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.
We’ve done this with thousands of people starting in 1991 and no one has ever had an injury beyond a scraped arm/hand, bruised ankle, or chipped nail. This program is very safe when it’s done right and our lead has proven he can do it right.
