Clay Creativity Workshop Unleashes The Secret of Team Spirit


CREATIVITY-BASED TEAM building activities can spark heartfelt discussions that plant the seeds for exceptional team spirit. This was the experience of the Digital Service Team of Kimberly Clark Philippines when they tried Casa San Pablo's Clay Storyteller Team Building Workshop last November 22, 2013.

Facilitated by An Mercado Alcantara, innkeeper, writer and clay artisan, the workshop was designed as a playful craft activity with a twist: participants were asked to create clay scenes that portray what they consider important in their lives. At the end of the activity, participants were asked to share the stories behind their clay creations. The emotional connection created through the swapping of stories brought on bonds that will last through years. Moments like these happen naturally through years of being together but in the busy and constantly changing professional world, it is essential to set aside time to nurture these bonds. Neuroscience studies have shown that having compassion for each other is a key factor in creating super productive teams. As one participant said, "I was surprised by how much we shared and learned about each other. Some of us carry so much pain, yet we don't notice it. I think we should try to be family to each other." Another participant said:  “We are very thankful for this activity because it gave us a venue to discuss things we don’t in the office and made us understand and accept our colleagues for who they are."

Casa San Pablo Storytellers are terracotta clay figures created and available for sale at Casa San Pablo. You can see some of them here. 

Thank you Kimberly Clark Philippines for sharing your wonderful learnings and for choosing our Clay Creativity Workshop in Casa San Pablo, San Pablo City, Laguna, as your team building activity.
