Ingwenyama Conference & Sport Resort

Breakaway to Ingwenyama Conference & Sport Resort

A beautiful, tranquil country estate nestled in the town of White River, Mpumalanga on the outskirts of Nelspruit or otherwise known as Mbombela, known for its great food, comfy accommodation, superb facilities and immaculate gardens. A mere 4 hour drives from the bustling city life of Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Ingwenyama is 35 kms away from the world famous Biosphere Kruger National Park, the closest gate being the Numbi Gate. We are 20km from Nelspruit town, 18km from Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport, 5km from Nelspruit and the gateway to the Panorama route.

Ingwenyama is a sought after destination for those wanting to escape the city life, for the corporate seeking a unique business experience or for the sporting team looking for a pre-season camp facility.

We have been very privileged over the last 22 years in hosting many dignitaries and VIP’s but for us our biggest accolade to date has been the privilege in being one of 32 venues in South Africa to host a world cup squad in 2010, we hosted Chile.

Ingwenyama Conference & Sports Resort has been striving to make this winning resort the perfect place for work and play. This is a difficult balance to achieve but following recent developments we believe we have created a truly unique destination catering for all guest requirements in an absolutely spectacular setting.

Team building is the use of different types of team interventions that are aimed at enhancing social relations and clarifying team members’ roles, as well as solving task and interpersonal problems that affect team functioning.

Team building was originally a group process intervention aimed at improving interpersonal relations and social interactions but over time has developed to include achieving results, meeting goals and accomplishing tasks.

There is consensus and conceptual clarity about what team building constitutes exactly. The four components are:

Goal setting: emphasizes setting objectives and developing individual and team goals. Team members become involved in action planning to identify ways to achieve goals. It is designed to strengthen team member motivation to achieve team goals and objectives.
Role clarification: emphasizes increasing communication among team members regarding their respective roles within the team. Team members improve their understanding of their own and others’ respective roles and duties within the team. The team, and how best to use it, allows members to understand why clear roles are important. The members should also realize that they are interdependent and the failure of one team member leads to the failure of the entire team.
Problem solving: emphasizes identifying major task-related problems within the team. Team members become involved in action planning, implementing solutions to identified problems and to evaluate those solutions. They practice setting goals, developing interpersonal relations, clarifying team roles, and working to improve organizational characteristics through problem-solving tasks. Interpersonal relations management: this intervention emphasizes increasing teamwork skills (i.e. mutual supportiveness, communication, and sharing of feelings). Team members develop trust in one another and confidence in the team. Environment: teams are not closed systems. It is critical that they interact effectively with their external environments. Teams need good diplomatic relationships with key managers, union officials, other teams, and the functions that affect their performance. Team members must feel free to disagree with each other during team meetings but should present a united, positive front to the rest of the organization.

Challenges to team building

There are three challenges that team builders will face regarding effective team building.

  • The lack of teamwork skills in tomorrow’s workforce: one of the challenges facing leaders of organizations is to find employees who have the ability to work effectively in a team environment.
  • The increasing need for teams to work together in virtual workplaces and across organizational boundaries.
  • Globalization and teamwork: the globalization of industry also will make teamwork more challenging in the future. Teams of the future will be compared more and more of team members who have dissimilar languages, cultures, values and approaches to solving the problems.

So what we do is custom design our exercises to the wants and needs of every business and what they would like to achieve. We have a various programmes we run and will be happy to sit and discuss your needs and suggest some great ideas and programmes to run with your team. As we like to say we are Chosen by teams on the move and champion teams, so we can most definitely assist your team.
