Is Dragon Boating an inclusive Team Building Activity?
The short answer, is yes. A question we are asked fairly frequently by our clients, is "Is Dragon Boating inclusive enough for our whole team?" Whilst dragon boating as a competitive sport requires a higher level of physical fitness and technical skill, on a recreational, or corporate basis, dragon boating can certainly be for everybody. In a corporate team building scenario, the most important aspect is synchronization - that is, everyone working together to paddle in time. A well synchronized boat is an efficient boat, and an efficient boat can perform better than a stronger boat that is not synchronized properly. Therefore it is not simply about brute strength or athletic prowess; far from it; much of the success comes from working as a team - watching each other, listening to each other, feeling the rhythm of the boat; working as one.
