In the morning of the 30th of May, all trai­nees and stu­dents of TecAlliance fol­lo­wed the call of training ma­na­ger Kers­tin Lang­ohr and took part of our 2 days trai­nee mee­ting in Wei­kers­heim lo­cal­ly or re­mot­ly via Go-To-Meeting.

Rare mo­ments to meet so many col­leagues at once, as most of them are dis­tri­bu­t­ed to our dif­fe­rent lo­ca­ti­ons. Be­cau­se of this fact it makes the mee­ting more be­au­ti­ful and more in­te­res­ting for everyone.

Af­ter a short gree­ting and small hints to the to­pics from Kers­tin Lang­ohr we star­ted with a dis­cus­sion. We tal­ked about dif­fe­rent to­pics which in­clu­de po­si­ti­ve and ne­ga­ti­ve facts and first ap­proa­ches for the pro­blems were ac­qui­red. Now we de­fi­ned some ru­les e.g. how to give feed­back, ma­na­ging our out-of-of­fice messages and for sure the cor­rect be­ha­vi­or with our com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on media and the be­ha­vi­or of in­for­ma­ti­on transfer.

In ad­di­ti­on to this it be­ca­me a litt­le bit tri­cky. Each par­ti­ci­pant got two cards with dif­fe­rent in­for­ma­ti­on. Our task: How much does Mr. Mayer’s jour­ney by taxi, train and pla­ne cost? The so­lu­ti­on of the pro­blem could only be reached by good com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on. At the be­gin­ning, it was a litt­le bit chao­tic but we im­pro­ved the stra­te­gy step by step and the pro­blem was fi­nal­ly sol­ved by hel­ping each other and using a flip chart. We re­flec­ted our team per­for­mance and dis­cus­sed what we could’ve done bet­ter and what mista­kes we’ve done. Quick­ly we re­co­gni­zed par­al­lels to our work­day, whe­re neit­her runs ever­ything smoothly.

To fur­ther im­pro­ve our com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on we play­ed a game like “Wer wird Mil­lio­när” split­ted into two teams. Here we could see that we have more know­ledge working tog­e­ther in a team and if so­meo­ne doesn’t know the an­s­wer may­be the other knows it. Al­most all ques­ti­ons could be an­s­we­red cor­rect by both teams.

Fresh­ly streng­t­he­ned by fruits and sweets and a litt­le break it went on. The new task for our team: Bridge building!

We had to con­struct a sta­ble bridge bet­ween two ta­bles with the help of ad­he­si­ve tape, scis­sors and small pa­per she­ets. The bridge has to car­ry the load of two small toy cars and trans­port them safe­ly and wi­thout fal­ling down from ta­ble A to ta­ble B. No­bo­dy wan­ted to take over the role of ci­vil en­gi­neer, but all brid­ges ful­fil­led the requirements!

Af­ter a pro­noun­ced lunch break, we went on to do a spor­ting ac­ti­vi­ty. In the glo­rious sunshi­ne, Kers­tin gave us the task of over­co­m­ing a rope stret­ched bet­ween two trees wi­thout tou­ch­ing it. With tech­no­lo­gy, strength and good or­ga­niz­a­ti­on, we mas­te­red the task tog­e­ther, but we had only litt­le time to look for­ward, be­cau­se in round two, the rope was a lot hig­her than in round one. Now our dis­cus­sion took much more time and we tried many ide­as and we have fai­led. In the end, when we were about to give up, we still ma­na­ged to fi­nish the task tog­e­ther successfully.

The de­ser­ved re­ward of a busy but fun­ny day came in the form of piz­za. A gre­at en­ding, whe­re we tal­ked a litt­le bit in a re­la­xed at­mo­s­phe­re and shared our ex­pe­ri­en­ces with the others.

That’s it from Day One!
