After crossing the Forest of Fear and taking a short rest in the Village of Hope, the EPIC teams have had to come to terms with those they had lost along the way and gather strength as they step into the next week of their EPIC adventure: crossing the Desert of Despair.
Our adventurers have shown amazing courage and determination as they achieved their first week goals: meeting with their mentors, raising funds, organising activities, posting pictures of their progress on the exclusive EPIC Champions Group and filling a weekly report.
They often struggled with communication with their own team-mates, sometimes losing sight of them in the dark forest. They learned to be patient with each other and clear about their expectations.
At their feet now lies the Desert of Despair, where our heroes will have to choose between staying in their comfort zone or grabbing their courage with two hands to keep pushing for greater results.
Survival tip #1: SPEAK UP - make sure you communicate to your team members what you are working on and ask for help/input where needed.
Survival tip #2: TEAM BONDING - making sure everyone is committed is crucial at this point. It’s important to get things done but it is just as important to have fun together. Why not try a fun team activity? For example, today the Leadapreneur team went to rock climbing altogether at Mad Monkey, and it was super fun! :)
Survival tip #3: ORGANISE YOURSELF AND YOUR TEAM - When there are so many things to do it’s useful to identify what is actually important and urgent and what is not. To help you out, use this tool to classify your tasks.
We hope this encouraging post and the above tips will get you to the Tower of Possibility!!
