Corporate Clients

Since 2007, I have worked with hundreds of organizations in the Philippines and abroad.

These are government leaders, multinational companies, small businesses, local governments, government agencies, and non-government organizations.

I partner with leaders that value people development and nation-building.

In designing team-building programs, I consider the ten building blocks of teamwork. You can read more about it at 10 Secrets of Successful Teams.

If you have time to read, let me share these building blocks and the problems they are solving with you.

Clear Goals – Teams that lack clear goals may struggle with motivation, prioritization, and accountability. Clear goals provide focus and alignment, increase motivation and a sense of purpose, help teams prioritize tasks and resources, and enhance accountability and ownership of tasks.

Defined Roles – Teams with undefined or overlapping roles may struggle with confusion, duplication of effort, and resentment. Defined roles provide a clear understanding of individual responsibilities, reduce confusion and overlapping duties, improve task delegation and distribution of workload, and enhance team trust and respect.

Open Communication – Teams lacking communication or poor communication may struggle with misunderstandings, conflicts, and inefficiency. Open communication improves information sharing and transparency, increases collaboration and idea generation, reduces misunderstandings and disputes, and enhances team cohesion and trust.

Quality Decision-Making – Teams that struggle with decision-making may suffer from indecision, bias, or conflict. Quality decision-making improves decision-making processes and outcomes, enhances problem-solving skills, increases confidence in team decisions, and reduces conflicts and misunderstandings.

Conflict Management – Teams that avoid or poorly manage conflicts may experience tension, hostility, and mistrust. Conflict management improves conflict resolution skills, reduces stress and tension among team members, increases respect and understanding of individual differences, and enhances team cohesion and trust.

Embracing Diversity – Teams that lack diversity or fail to embrace it may struggle with conformity, groupthink, and poor problem-solving. Embracing diversity increases appreciation and acceptance of individual differences, enhances creativity and innovation, improves problem-solving skills, and reduces conflicts and misunderstandings.

Balanced Participation – Teams that suffer from unequal participation may experience low morale, resentment, and poor decision-making. Balanced participation increases engagement and participation from all team members, enhances collaboration and idea generation, reduces bias and favoritism, and enhances team cohesion and trust.

Collaboration – Teams that lack collaboration may struggle with silos, duplication of effort, and inefficiency. Collaboration improves teamwork and collaboration skills, enhances communication and idea generation, increases respect and trust among team members, and improves overall team performance.

Positive Atmosphere – Teams with a negative or toxic atmosphere may suffer from low morale, high turnover, and poor performance. A positive atmosphere increases motivation and engagement, enhances job satisfaction and morale, improves overall team culture and environment, and increases team cohesion and trust.

Participative Leadership – Teams that lack leadership or have poor leadership may need direction, delegation, and engagement. Participative leadership increases trust and respect for leadership, enhances collaboration and idea generation, improves decision-making processes and outcomes, and enhances team cohesion and trust.

At Team Bayanihan, our team-building facilitators specialize in helping businesses design and implement effective team-building programs that address the ten essential building blocks of teamwork.

There is a method behind the magic we do.

Allow me to share with you our five-step consulting process.

1. Discover your unique ability and strengths.

Our consultants will invest time in understanding your needs for team building. Doctors call this diagnostic. We engage in discovery.

Often, we start this stage even before you hire Team Bayanihan. We aim to learn if we are the right team-building provider for you. If others can help you better, we tell you too.

We lead you to the discovery of your SOAR: Strengths, Opportunities, Aspirations, and Results. We explore the unique ability of your team to succeed. We want to highlight the mindset, attitude, and behaviors that can make your team improve and perform at your best.

We use assessment tools to help you discover your positives.

2. Design experiences and develop team tools.

Once we have identified how to move forward, our LX designers and facilitators will design your team-building experience, including pre-and post-workshop activities.

We will also identify tools, activities, and games to help bring out the desired learning outputs.

3. Deliver the experience.

We hold four-hour workshops for multi-day team-building experiences.

In the Philippines, many sales rallies allocate 3 to 4 hours for team building. A group of 100 may have a one-day team building. And smaller teams do overnight sessions on beaches and resorts.

Our multi-day programs are usually for team leaders and executives whose learning outputs are the solutions they seek. These solutions include promoting accountability, employee engagement, team coaching and mentoring, and other competency-based team building.

To help you identify which one is for you, we can send you a catalog of our programs.

Most providers end here. And you may terminate the process here too. But to be truly effective, we encourage you to go to the next step.

4. Engage the team to take action.

Many team-building programs, like most seminars in the Philippines, end at the event. Everyone congratulates the winners. Facilitators celebrate themselves for doing a great job in making people happy.

Our journey begins with discovery. Once we have identified the best behaviors of your team, we want to help them make these behaviors normal. Once conflicts are solved, we don’t want them to keep on coming back.

So, our team building continues. We engage people for the next steps. This may require them to set goals and meet their bosses once a month. It may also involve us. We can design online courses or do monthly webinars for you to strengthen the resolve of everyone to make extraordinary success happen.

5. Evaluate to elevate. 

When was the last time you evaluated the effectiveness of your team building? Unfortunately, most team-building programs are never measured.

Some providers require you to fill in a feedback form. But these form evaluates the facilitators rather than your team.

We can help you evaluate your team’s improvement from X to Y. You can make adjustments to your progress if you evaluate the impact of your team building. It also tells people that you are serious about helping them build teams.

Jef Menguin is a trusted team-building facilitator in the Philippines. A team-building facilitator is a trainer, coach, or professional who helps teams find solutions to their team challenges through learning sessions, games, activities, and other shared experiences. The facilitator’s purpose is to bring out the wisdom of the members so they can solve their problems.

The first task of new team leaders is to know the members of the team. Listen to them. Find out their stories, dreams, values, aspirations, and the result they want as part of the team. Every team you lead is a new team. Whatever works with previous teams you led may not work with the new ones. So, spend a pretty good time knowing and understanding the people you will work with.

To build a strong, cohesive team, find out what can bring the team together. Look into values, beliefs, dreams, complementary skill sets, and working styles. Then, focus on building trust, accountability, commitment, harmony, and success. Building a cohesive team is simple but not easy. It is a process that does not always follow a timeline. The ingredients I have given are easy and proven ways. You can try them.

Teamwork is a spirit of oneness, and it happens when people choose to work together to achieve a goal that no single individual can achieve. You don’t have to be a member of a team to exercise teamwork. For example, during rescue operations, strangers decide to help each other for a common purpose: to save other strangers. There is no leader, there are no roles, but everyone agrees to work together. In team building, we want to cultivate teamwork for it to happen more often.

Team building skills allow a team to work well together to achieve more remarkable performance. These skills include goal-orientation, decision-making, open and honest communication, collaboration, cooperation, team accountability, and execution. Some organizations have creativity, experimentation, and speed to the mix.

The role of team-building facilitators is like that of midwives. They support you (the team) and your baby (the goals) in the process of becoming strong and cohesive. A team-building facilitator isn’t a lecturer, though he may contribute inputs. The role of a team-building facilitator is to make it easy for your team to succeed. You may need a process facilitator during your team learning sessions or team-building activities. In the Philippines, many of those who called themselves facilitators are game masters — it helps if you know the difference.

The client defines the task of a facilitator in leading a team-building program. The client can be the sponsor or the team leader. Facilitators will design the learning experiences and define the process of team building, but always in consultation with the team leader and with the approval of the sponsor. You don’t get this when you buy team-building packages from team-building organizers because they sell the games, not the goals. So, be discerning.

The team-building facilitator must help the team reexamine their mindsets and behaviors to achieve their desired results. Team learning sessions, games, and activities must revolve around these purposes.

During team learning games and activities, the facilitator must remind the team of the overall goals and clarify how the team-building exercise can help achieve these goals.

Focus on goals and build skills and mindsets that will help the team achieve — these are the things that a team building facilitator must be able to do.

Games in team-building provide the opportunities to learn together from a shared experience. Games are like metaphors for real-world challenges where people can learn to work together in a safe, friendly environment without losing billions of pesos. It is important to choose your team-building games very carefully, as, like metaphors, games may send mixed messages. Ensure that you know how to debrief a team-building game.

Activities in team building are shared experiences. Members will learn from the experiences. Designing activities to help members learn is a job you leave to professionals or those who understand learning experience design — or you will get the opposite of what you expect.

We use virtual team-building activities and games when designing team-learning experiences. When people are having fun, you can move them to action. The team-building activities, when designed well, can help you build relationships, increase team skills, and make the team thrive.

9 Dimensions of a team is a great activity during these times.

The Philippines offers a unique blend of beautiful landscapes, rich culture, and warm hospitality that makes it an ideal destination for team-building events. With a wide variety of activities and locations to choose from, your team can immerse themselves in a truly unforgettable experience while improving communication, collaboration, and trust.

We have conducted team-building programs in almost every province in the Philippines. Here are twelve provinces where we conduct most of our team-building programs.
Metro Manila is not a province. But more than 50 percent of our clients are from Metro Manila.

Build Great Teams.

I have been helping companies in the Philippines build the competencies of team leaders and engage members of the team through tailor-fit team learning experiences.

So, please don't hesitate to get in touch. I will help you. We can help each other.
