Overview

TBi as we know it today evolved from a humble start in a store room of a family house in 1994. Born from a vision to introduce the fruits of a Doctoral dissertation to improve self-understanding, intra- and interpersonal relationships. The name “Team Building Institute” suggests the following:

  • “Team Building”: When a client says: “We need team building”, the person either suggests that intra- or interpersonal behavioural patterns should change; or that a recreational session is required to allow people to socially interact.
  • “Institute”: This suggests that the Educational Organisation specialises on a scientific basis.
Our unique value proposition is our scientific method of training based on the Doctoral dissertation referred to above. We refer to the methodology as AEL.

AEL (Adventure-related Experiential Learning) applies knowledge derived from four disciplines:
  1. Psychology
  2. Philosophy
  3. Human Movement Sciences
  4. Business Science
The AEL method of training offers tailor-made solutions to a plethora of behaviour-related requirements you may require; to name but a few:
  • Recreation (Year-end-functions)
  • Team Building
  • Industry 4.0 Upskilling
  • Conflict Management
  • Project Management
  • Stress Management (refer to Programmes on the Menu Bar)
