At BizzBeats nothing motivates us more than seeing people thrive and contributing to both their personal and professional development. We also have a passion for music and social change and have combined these three key ingredients to build something that we feel really makes a positive contribution to our society; on an individual level, a team level and on a social level.
Like many of you, we recognise that both business and society are constantly and rapidly becoming more complex. Customers' needs change daily and - to make it more challenging - they are often conflicting needs.
Organisations often respond by getting more complicated: more procedures, overlay functions, sub-KPI's, scorecards. Despite all technological progress, productivity and engagement remain under pressure and teaming true collaboration with individual entrepreneurialism is still a tricky balancing act.
We believe the more open-minded, adaptable, creative and cooperative team members become, the better equipped they will be to deal with growing complexity in simple, unexpected, innovative and effective ways.
People's talents or skills frequently stretch far beyond the challenges offered by training events ... and often their own imagination. The Bizzbeats alchemy of music and coaching creates a real time challenge that helps them discover and unlock these abilities. We have developed a unique and modern learning experience that challenges your team members to come on a journey of self-discovery. Our approach increases your team's cohesion and engagement; helps your team members uncover talents and knowledge they didn't know they had; taps into their creative mind and makes them fully realise their responsibilities and those of the other team members.
We start by giving those taking part a seemingly impossible task.
This work places participants in an intense environment where they need to tap into their creative side and work towards a very tight deadline.
We take participants well beyond what they habitually feel capable of. In this pressure cooker situation we can uncover the individual 'default' traits of the participants. It is our role to observe and gently guide the participants and maintain a positive and safe environment in which to complete the challenge and help them reflect on the experience afterwards.
BizzBeats makes this happen by providing musical support from qualified musicians with real music industry experience. They will coach the team and assist them in learning how to play an instrument, make a song and record it. Our set up is totally portable which allows great flexibility in terms of training location and combine the best 'old school' musical instruments with state of the art equipment.
Compared with traditional team development days BizzBeats offers many advantages:
Our exceptional business coaches, musicians and facilitators will guide and support your team on their BizzBeats journey. The team observations and discoveries are an essential outcome. Both the team and the BizzBeats coaches will have the chance to very quickly learn a great deal about the default behaviours and revealed talents of the people in the room.
Your team walks away with a story - an emotional and collective experience: of working from a different source of creativity; of achieving something worthwhile and permanent that they originally thought impossible; of pride and satisfaction when they hear and see the results.
A typical BizzBeats program takes a full day. Depending size of the team, objectives and other circumstances we can extend the program or divide over multiple days.
BizzBeats works with experienced business coaches and qualified industry musicians. We are united by a love of music, personal development and creativity. The emotional rollercoaster of BizzBeats events are thrilling and uplifting for coaches too and their enthusiasm for their work is contagious!
In the UK BizzBeats operates with a professional mobile studio. The Amsterdam based BizzBeats team works with an armada of HubTowers.
HubTowers and music coaches will assist the team in learning how to play an instrument and record their songs by seamlessly integrating 'old school' instruments with iPads, drumpads and editing options. With the HubTowers you can play everywhere. Our HubTowers are portable and sound levels can be adjusted to the circumstances e.g. listening though headphones or amplified over a sound system.
In both the UK as in the Netherlands we would like to partner with a few charities with a fit to our approach en values, and generate national or global significant impact. If you are a charity interested in partnering with Bizzbeats then get in touch today.
