Digital Detox

You have to disconnect to reconnect 

NATURALLY CONNECTING YOUR MILLENNIAL WORKFORCE 

A Team Survival Experience in Latvia's nature is a, much needed, digital detox and trust accelerator second to none!

  • Needing to align your team that is not working to its optimum? 

  • Want to really focus on solving a challenging problem(s) from a different outlook?     

  • Thinking of increasing your team size?

  • NEW - This experience is now available in the WINTER.

Why not invite potential employees / new recruits on a TEAM SURVIVAL experience to monitor how well they fit in with the current team and whether or not they are suited for the role.

All phones and communication devices are confiscated and the group are ordered to leave the bus. Abandoned in the middle of nowhere with nothing else apart from the clothes on their back - time to Survive and Thrive as a team. 

  

The group has to make decisions on what to do next to return to civilisation. During the adventure the group will learn bush craft skills, accomplish different tasks and overpass obstacles. Professional instructors will accompany the group to give certain directions and help instruct the group to accomplish different exercises.

 

The experience helps remind people how to 'live', the importance of sharing and how life can be made a lot simpler once priorities are in order! When in a 'crisis' or under pressure, team work and cohesive decision making is crucial in order for your team to succeed.

iSTAQ - Your ultimate engagement tool within the office and home!

Watching Simon Sinek’s video, ‘How our phones are ruining relationships’ was a huge turning point in my life and inspired me to take action!!  

 

Simon Sinek is a mind-blowing Optimist; who articulates the problem of phone addiction very well.

 

We are entrepreneurs; we are aiming to tackle the problem of phone addiction head on.

 

I believe the 3 magical ingredients for happiness are High Esteem, Optimism and Close Relationships, the exact things phone and social media have a negative impact on.

 

Please let me introduce you to iSTAQ.    

 

iSTAQ is tackling the very serious problem, of phone addiction, with purpose and style.

 

iSTAQ encourages people to physically disarm themselves from their devices and advocates healthy habits to help manage the balance with technology.

 

iSTAQ motivates and rewards users to "Recharge & Focus" on what really matters; 'being present' with the friends, family and colleagues you are closest to, both physically and emotionally!
