Team Building

Team and Leadership Development

Great teamwork and great recipes have a lot in common, understanding the ingredients and how they work together is critical, mixing new things in at the right time can have an extraordinary impact on results, and applying too much heat can destroy even the best raw materials.

The same applies to inspirational leaders and cooks – they have big picture vision, at the same time as understanding the importance of how to prepare every part of the mix.

So it’s no surprise that two passionate cooks and expert development facilitators have drawn these analogies together. The surprise is in their contrasting styles.

Jay lives on a narrow boat and in his perfect world would cook everything outside over an open fire, preferably finding some of the ingredients out there too. His main piece of equipment is a bushcraft knife, which he uses to split kindling before using it to chop vegetables.

Phil - TV cook (Britain’s Best Dish) and author (Can Men Cook), is a gadget freak and his hi tech kitchen appliances would have the marketing men at John Lewis drooling. He loves recipe design and using the best regional and seasonal produce.

They see plenty of analogies here too with modern business, and challenge their delegates to combine the right cutting edge methods and equipment with the best traditional interpersonal and leadership skills.

So how can your team benefit?

Phil and Jay will design a programme to meet your development needs, anything from a half day breakout to reinforce the discussions of a team strategy meeting, through to a two day (or more) fully facilitated residential development programme.

You will always get a totally hands on cooking experience (kitchen and open fire), and of course great and memorable meals shared with your colleagues, but more importantly Old Bull & Bush will help you draw out all the learning points and relate them back to improving performance in your workplace.
