Teaching the Team

StirrupsChukkar Farm Polo Club and Event Facility is a unique venue that offers a wide range of experiences and options for your business. Whether you need a facility and event to help you raise money for your upcoming fundraiser, or if you are looking for some where to host your upcoming company picnic, or if you are looking for an unforgettable team building event, you’ve come to the right place.

Our polo team building events are something that you won’t find anywhere else in the Alpharetta, Ga or north Georgia area. They cover all aspects of successful team building events and will have a long lasting impact on your company. These are the lessons that polo can help teach your business team.

1. You Must Work Together

When people are playing on a team sport together, it’s easy to associate themselves and fight against their enemies. In the corporate world, that sense of camaraderie and “coming together around a common result can often be lost. When your your team mates on the polo field, your employees won’t be able to forget.

2. You Have a Common Goal

I really helps to rally your team if you all have  a common goal in mind. When everyone is taking their turns to hit the ball – both figuratively and literally – towards that goal that you all have in your sights, the task will get accomplished quickly and effectively.

3. It challenges everyone equally

Do you ever get the feeling that one of your midlevel managers does not respect your employees? Bringing them to Chukkar Farm is a great place to start to break the ice for them. When no one has ever ridden a horse, much less learned the rules of polo,

4. You Must Communicate

Once you are mounted on your horses and you and your team are headed out to the polo fields, you’ll learn quickly how essential it is to communicate with your team members. You need to tell them which goal they are headed for, help them go after the right players on the opposing team, and give them tips on their swing. It’s just like working together in the office!

5. It Gives Every Employee a Chance to Be a Leader

You never know who is going to rise to the top when you put your team in a new situation. Who knows, your lowest ranked employee might rise to the occasion and become the team leader! Leveling the playing field with horses and a new sport gives everyone the opportunity to rise up.

Chukkar Farm’s polo team building exercises are great for all types of companies and groups. Call us today to schedule your company’s event at our north Georgia facility.
