Leadership, Team Building, and Communication Skills with Indoor Curling

AmCham Advance Learning Lab Workshop

This event is on a first-come-first-served basis, maximum 20 persons.

With the rapid growth of technology, innovation and digitalization, companies and their workforce need to learn new skills and adopt to new software and hardware.

According to LinkedIn, some of the most in demand soft skills are adaptability, collaboration (team working and communication), and creativity. What kind of training can provide your company with all of these essential skills? The answer is through the newly developed Indoor Curling exercise.

Curling, it’s a gentleman’s sport which started in the early 16th century. It is a sport that requires team work, communication, leadership, and creativity. Several years ago, a Hong Kong professor saw the educational benefit in Curling, and with some creativity and ingenuity, he converted the game (which is usually played on ice) and now it can be played anywhere indoor. It is not limited to age or physical ability, anyone of any age group can play it, anytime. The experiences, bonding and lessons you gain through playing the game is invaluable.

This 2 hour workshop will provide you a fun, unique, interesting way to enhance your skills in leadership, adaptability, collaboration (team working and communication), and creativity.
