26 people on a common mining shift – this is how we engaged in team-building activities with one of our clients… 355 meters below ground.
Equipped with foremen’s clothes and lamps, we went into the deepest levels of the Guido coal mine. Our tasks included moving a pipeline, assembling a belt conveyor or cutting a pit prop. Excellent cooperation of all team members was a necessary condition to complete the mission.
Silesian-style team building was positively received by the client: “Thank you for your hospitality and the interesting agenda. We had a lot of fun, and the collaborative tasks will help us improve our teamwork.” Fortunately, it will not involve any more anti-explosion barriers overhead.
