YES, Drum Circles are fun YES. they are one of the bestteam building activities in Pune. YES, you can forget all that was bothering you for a while and leave you on a natural high. BUT it is all just a fancy way of selling you a one-off corporate entertainment activity if you have not understood that the true value of these sessions is something that is experienced over time.
What tends to happen with a myopic, cut-throat approach to these team building events is, that the customer has unrealistic expectations from the drum circle activity and the already over-committed service provider ends up having to over simplify or oversell the benefits of the session. This leads to a couple of outcomes:
The client writes off the activity as merely a one-off fun session
The client does not call the service provider back
The client generalises that all drum circle team building activities are the same
The service provider feels a (short-lived) sense of satisfaction on a “successful drum circle performance”
The service provider has to work twice as hard to convince others about the success and efficacy of such sessions
The service provider has actually contributed toward the negative publicity of group drumming for corporates.
