Interdependence is the key to a successful and healthy outcome

The Motivational Mountains modules gave me a deeper understanding into motivation and the factors that contribute to it. I launched my new business that year and am progressing well on the motivation front. My time at Kiwi Compass’s Motivational Mountain in Hunua was well spent and I so enjoyed the time out in natural surroundings-time to breathe, time to understand, time to think and time to plan the way forward.”

Build Your Team’s Motivational Mountain. Kiwi Compass shows how.


An interactive module, Motivational Mountains starts with the theory, group and pair discussion behind team motivation and team behaviour. It’s followed by an easy, fun shelter build exercise in the outdoors to clearly demonstrate the new knowledge and understanding while bringing about the ah-ha moments; realisation of depth and quality in work when a team operates well together with individual uniqueness and mentorship encouraged. Curiosity and questioning will prompt innovation and creativity. Motivation requires a sense of belonging, an appreciation and trust in individual team members. Teams will look at their futureproofing and creating healthy and aesthetic team environments.


(approx. 5 hours plus 1-2 hours free time to enjoy the trails on the grounds of Tree Heart Park).


2. CROSS-THE-BRIDGE by Kiwi Compass 



This experience makes both team members and team leaders aware of a team member’s value, individual talent, skill, expertise, interests, culture, and character. Cross-the-bridge is a safe platform for team exchange and a chance to express individual and team needs whether resources, expertise, mentorship time, or simple encouragement. Outsource and support teams can be included in this module as a way of building trust, communication, and effective bonding. The second part of this module is expressing HOW the individual team members will use their skills, experience, resources, interests, culture, and character in a current project.


Trust is built in both process and people (Rousseau).

Trust in people depends on three factors:


  • Trust in competence.
  • Social and cultural factors.
  • Understanding team members’ motivations.


(approximately 2 hours module plus 1 hour free time to enjoy the trails of Tree Heart Park).

3. VOICE FROM THE MIST by Kiwi Compass.


This module encourages individual voice and diverse ideas within a team and identifies the dangers of groupthink. In a creative zone team members have a chance to come forward with their thoughts and to communicate them effectively to other team members- using body language, tone, choosing a method, and providing evidence. How will the team react to an idea? We identify the best method for the team to react to a new idea that is being voiced so each team member is acknowledged, heard correctly, and understood. The team can make it happen.


(2 hours module time plus 1 hour free time)
