It’s not only in business that building blocks are cemented by trust but, whatever one considers a workplace, it’s necessary that people sharing such a workspace both trust and are trusted. Any demolition of the baseline of ethics would appear a waste, as trust takes both time and work to build.
Mistrust’s roots begin with incidental small things such as hair or a bite mark. Often hidden and unnoticed objects, maybe a blood stained knife. It can be behaviour or attitude or even maybe some unexpected fingerprints. That is transparency missing according to CSI.
Building trust through talking about evidence and observation at a crime scene seems to us an ‘arresting’ idea for team building. Right Angle Events’ ‘Crime Scene Investigation’ is non competitive, less physically demanding than an assault course and gets potentially underused areas of grey matter ticking and flowing with ideas. With the possibility of a ‘mock’ trial, a short course in forensic science, or using FBI software, the building of trust through an interactive ‘reality’ challenge seems like play with a purpose for the young and those north of young. Any ‘team’ aspect that might be missing from a workplace can be observed along with useful skills to carry forward as Detective work, whether mock or for real, is inherently linked with communicating, both the giving and receiving of.
The popularity of Crime fiction , movies and drama gives us a clue that this is an area that people are genuinely interested in. As Steve and Kate Gaskin’s business model aims to motivate, entertain and innovate (presumably with gloves to hide those fingerprints), we’d suggest, on this occasion, any ‘Do Not Enter’ banner is ignored.
