We are BITOU

How do you form unique team events that are always new and always have an open ear for the current events in the working world? For this, a team is needed which grows and learns independently. We at BITOU are thinkers, doers and strategists, people of the heart, creative heads and entertainment artists. And because we are all so different, we complete each other wonderfully!

What is the most beautiful thing about your job
Erich Kästner once said, “There is nothing good unless you do it.” I follow this quote in my actions and am happy every day to be able to give people impulses. Not because I know everything better, I learn as much in every training as my participants. Being able to help a team or company on the way to a more positive team culture and more constructive communication feels right to me and is a good thing that I can do and that we do every day at BITOU.

What is your favourite team event and why?
Online Crime Time – because it gives you such joy and enables people, despite the distance, to do something with each other and to strengthen the team spirit. The Crime Time is unbelievably amusing and the participants really get into the roles of trying to solve the crime.

What is the nicest thing about your job?
That we can share our own work experiences with other people and coach them! During the first lockdown in Spring 2020, I had a conversation with a colleague. His problem was that he was feeling lonely in home office. I said to him: “think about what would help you and develop a team training from this!” He did just that – and further developed our offer in a unique way.

What was your best team experience?
Seeing how the potential of participants develops when they take on a team task. A small impulse set in the right place can already have a big impact on a team. What excites me about this is what happens when a team decides to continue the process that has been initiated. In the last few years, “regular clients” have established themselves with me, who always want to be tested and reminded of what is important in good teamwork.

What is your favourite team event and why?
HAKA – it means to overcome yourself, to just scream and allow the mimes to play out, stamp, try out threatening gestures. Sense yourself in a new way, perceive the positive energy and allow it to flow. This was an aha-experience for me!

What is your favourite team event and why?
Planetary Saga: “Change is the only constant in life” – a famous quote from the Greek philosopher Heraclitus. Only everyone deals with change differently. Based on John Kotter’s change studies, this event is an excellent way to understand the tendencies in one’s own decision making or that of individual teams in change processes. Especially the immensely important change communication at the right time is trained in a playful way. Try it out!

What is your favourite team event and why?
Online Criminal Dinner with cooking – because this event is so exciting and fun, the communication works amazingly well amongst the participants also online, and I love to cook and eat well. This event promotes the us-feeling in the team, even though everyone is at home and the event takes place online, it is a great, joint team experience.

What is your favourite team event and why?
Adventure Everest – the event inspires me anew every time. This strategic business game triggers a wide variety of impulses in the participants, which make it possible to refer specifically to parallels to everyday life and professional life. You can feel that something is happening in the minds of the mountaineers! This is the kind of feeling you like to come home with.

What was your nicest/most impressionable team experience?
For me, supporting and accompanying the teams, and witnessing exciting developments are the nicest experiences in my profession. Special moments always arise when people surpass themselves, really confront themselves and establish that we aren’t so different to each other, despite the demanding situation. For this reason, Seneca’s statement has become my motto: “everything truly big materialises through a slow and almost unnoticeable growth”.

What was your best/most memorable team experience?
The change process – because change begins in small steps and can become something really big. A team that is willing to walk this path of change together and to grow is a completely new experience for me. I am grateful that my path has led me to BITOU and that I am part of this great team!

What hobby do you bring to your job?
Up until recently, I could use my handy manual skills in our workshop. Now, holding out and stamina are required instead, until we reach normality in the event industry again. This reminds me of my week-long hike in the Himalajas with the many ups and downs.

What was your best/most memorable team experience?
My most memorable team experience was one of my first in college when we “sacrificed” game characters represented by real fellow students in our team building because we didn’t think of sharing our information transparently with them. One of the best was the Christmas party with the BITOU team. Here we could get to know each other better in a great atmosphere during the joint online cooking and the quizzing afterwards.

When did you first come into contact with team building?
In fact, and with hindsight, I have to say that unfortunately it wasn’t until my job interview at BITOU. The experience was simply amazing for me. It was a challenge to deal intensively with myself in such a short space of time, to question and assess myself. I was overwhelmed by what you learn about yourself and your fellow players by mapping them with Lego bricks using various building tasks. After this experience with Lego Serious Play Dynamics and the impressions I gained about myself and everyone involved, I was sure that I would like to stay here (at BITOU) and be involved.

What is your favorite team event and why?
The Chain Reaction XXL and the Before Mars workshop. In both the chain reaction and the Before Mars workshop, I find it very interesting how differently the participants solve the challenges of the given tasks and what different results follow from them. I also like the fact that you can use your creativity freely in the chain reaction and have to find a common structure.

What was your best/ most memorable team experience?
My most memorable team experience at BITOU was a Chain Reaction involving 650 participants. It was very impressive to observe what so many people can achieve together. The participants created a great result and embraced each other in the final run. This collaboration of so many people, some of whom did not know each other and spoke different languages, really touched me deeply.

What would you describe yourself as in your job?
As a facilitator! I love figuring out what impulse the team I’m supporting needs at the moment to work together more effectively. The interplay between identifying the right impulse on my end and implementing it on the participants’ end excites me every time.
