Polo Team Building by Executive Oasis International Toronto
Business Today is a Different Ball Game
Polo is the perfect metaphor for today’s hectic and rapidly changing business environment. It mirrors and reflects the realities of working in a turbulent economy. To succeed in the business world and on the polo field, strategy, teamwork, on-going communication, and the ability to “spin on a dime” are essential. Teams must be quick, agile, and nimble.
To hone your teamwork skills and prepare for the challenges of a fast paced environment, there is nothing like the intense action of polo….the breakneck speed of play, the thunder of hooves, the fiercely competitive environment, the shouts of the players in constant communication with their team mates, the moment by moment change in the “line of the ball”, and the cheers of the crowd when you race towards the goalposts and score.
