Corporate Drumming

December 2002

Despite living in an increasingly isolated society, our jobs are demanding higher levels of innovation, creativity and skills reliant on good working relationships. Today more and more corporations are realising the necessity of team-building sessions to break down the many barriers created within and without the working arena to facilitate a positive working environment. Drumming has been proven to be one of the most effective tools in team building sessions and corporations like Apple Computer, Hewlett-Packard, AOL/Time Warner and Motorola are reaping the benefits.

Companies have discovered that after a drumming session, their teams have stronger inter-personal connections, experience a sense of well-being and reach higher levels of creativity. Interactive drumming relies on collaborative energy, and when people are working together they produce more. And as everyone knows: the better the morale, the better the working relations, the better the productivity, the happier the employers, the better the morale its a wonderfully synergetic circle.

The immediate benefits include:

bullet Ice-breaker: colleagues get to know each other as individuals rather than just co-workers.
bullet Builds team spirit: as spirits are lifted and minds cleared, morale levels are raised and a sense of community develops between participants. Employers have discovered that after a drumming session their workforce is more inspired and committed than before.
bulletBridges barriers: cultural, religious, age, gender and hierarchical divides are bridged as staff members start to communicate as equals.
bulletStress release: researchers have proven drumming causes stress and tension levels to drop immediately.
bullet Mental stimulation: drumming encourages spatial-temporal reasoning skills that allow lateral thinking and the development of problem-solving skills.
