Search – Increase Team Performance

With The Search, we help people learn lessons, grow and change.

You’re here because you want to take your team to the next level; we can help you with this.

  • Is your team fragmented?
  • Is it difficult getting team members to agree on a plan?
  • Do you want higher performance from your team?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, in three short hours, The Search can help.

Learn our proprietary 1 CACHE system

With The Search, we teach the 1 CACHE system, a six-step method to help teams reach consensus, make decisions faster and follow through. In a fast-paced competition, we look for people who can best implement this skill to create a high-performing team. The six steps ensure every team member agrees on the plan or process and gets a vote in the end solution. The goal is for each participant to commit to do something different after the event.

How does it work?

Before your event, we design a course based on your goals at the location you choose. We take advantage of beautiful places and customize the course to promote key lessons such as teamwork and creativity.

On the day of the event, the facilitator forms the group into teams, shares the goals and rules and explains how to use our technology. The facilitator teaches the 1 CACHE system and has the team immediately apply it to choosing their team name. Then the teams are off on their adventure! In this purely competitive event, teams look to out-perform other teams with superior strategy and execution.

Finally, teams arrive at the end point where they reflect on the best lessons learned and present them in an entertaining team presentation. Participants then commit on how they can use the 1 CACHE system to create valuable results at work.  Top teams win prizes. The event closes on a highpoint with a custom video slideshow from the photos and videos your team shot.

The results you will take away from The Search include: foster relationships and accelerate team bonding; increase clarity and creativity; improve problem solving and resilience to unexpected team challenges; enhance cohesion between team members and reach agreement faster.

The Search has helped many teams accelerate and achieve significant company goals; here are just a few examples: 

  • Engaged participants in a conference where The Search was the highest rated activity
  • Helped an engineering team ship software on time that went on to sell over 150 million licenses
  • Reduced a team’s time on a key repeatable activity by 50%
