The new EKVALIS members attended their first workshop on team building and team communication. In the first part of the workshop, the members had the opportunity to get to know each other, share interesting aspects of their identities. At the next stage, they had to work in teams (groups, pair and as a whole team) to solve problems and challenges in forms of exercises and thus enhance their team cooperation and to find strategies to overcome those problems. The youth workers also explained the constituent part of the team such as cooperation, understanding, mutual respect, transparency, democracy and other related concepts.
In the second part of the workshop, the participants worked on developing the team communication. The youth workers from EKVALIS explained the different modes of verbal and non-verbal communication which the participants exercised and reflected on through a series of simulations and role plays.
We organized this workshop as one of our many events for forming a stronger EKVALIS team that will serve the community better and spread impactful results of our work. You can find all photos from the workshop here.
