Escape Velocity is a two day offsite which is very interactive and fun filled yet drives the serious intent of the business. This can be customised for a Function across hierarchy or for Heads of Department and Senior Leadership team depending on the objective of the intervention.
We understand that the key to productivity and efficiency in all organizations across industry is alignment of employees with organisation’s objective, their initiative taking ability as individuals and a mindset of trust across functions. Escape Velocity addresses this challenge.
We conduct the workshop in 3 formats. The format can be chosen depending on the desired objective.
1. Escape Velocity: The workshop is replete with activities, role plays, videos and discussions and the outcome expected is as follows:
An aligned and initiative oriented team with openness to differences amongst each other.
A ‘no-excuse’ mindset with absolute accountability at work
An inclination to listen and engage in dialogue at work to build consensus
An orientation to ‘solution’ seeking mindset rather than problem seeking one.
On the 2nd day the team is left with Action Learning Projects with defined Measure of Success. These projects become a platform for implementing the learning of the workshop and is also an opportunity for the organization to address some key challenges faced by the participating team.
2. Together Towards Tomorrow – Strategy/ Annual Operating Plan Roll Out

Understands the 3-4 key levers in their business with respect to AOP

“The Escape Velocity program was a great success, SKOPE facilitators did a great job of getting people engaged and active in the various stages of the two days. I learned a lot personally on how my staff reacted to the various assignments. It made me think about my own attitudes and how to overcome the lock-in’s that restrict our thought processes. All up, the program was worth it and I look forward to the follow up session and checking progress on how we’re implementing the ideas that came out of the two days. Excited for the Journey!!”

“Running a business successfully involves serious challenges in terms of managing people, processes and performance. Aseem Hanspal and SKOPE team worked with us like full time employees, spent time in understanding our business and bringing about transformations. We are now an evolved organization with a fresh breath of energy and yes change management was smooth. I have no second thoughts in calling them turnaround specialists for a rapidly scaling organization like ours. Would always look forward to work with SKOPE and discuss challenges as I know, they would be able to bring in relevant solutions.”
Managing Director, Shingora Textiles Limited
“SKOPE team, led by Aseem Hanspal, knows how to maintain a balance between a bird eye view and holistic approach. I was particularly impressed with their observations while interacting with them on our diversified business verticals. They are highly organized change management experts. I am overwhelmed with their approach and 100% commitment to clients’ interest and timelines. We are optimistic that with their attitude and diligence, we will be able to achieve our goals of bringing in desired change and moving to next orbit. “
CEO at Ramoji Film City
“I have experienced many motivational and team building sessions during my long and varied work life. Although I found most of them helpful, this is the first workshop which addressed the day to day issues specifically concerning GFC. It helped address both theoretical situations and actual current company issues, making the exercise doubly useful. Aseem and Robin work extremely well as a team. They get the message across by initially giving examples/situations and then go on to show you how employees can use this knowledge to solve every day work issues.”

“I must say not only did we enjoy the two days we spent together as a team, but the entire team came back and put their high-energy levels into immediate action. They broke a sales record, which was considered impossible to achieve on the last day of the month, all with their own internal direction and motivation. This was mainly due the processes they decided to reinvent based on learning on ensuring no resource is wasted, the TDS approach and the team engagement to work towards a common goal without saying it was impossible. You have now made my life more difficult with some great push backs from the team; but I can’t ask for a more pleasant problem to have.”

This has been the best workshop I have participated in throughout my working life. The course has served as a catalyst for personal change in so many ways at work and outside work. It has opened my mind to many things and what I can be. This workshop has definitely helped me so much to realise certain things that I have been lacking and opened my mind for further learning and improvement. It was extremely insightful and has provided me with focus areas for improvement. Thanks to SKOPE team for such a wonderful workshop.

The team was using a different language and energy generated was remarkable. Post the intervention the team started taking a lot of initiative and I also witnessed a remarkable alignment towards organizational goal. I am sure we are on our way to moving to next orbit. Well Done SKOPE.”

“SKOPE conducted an excellent session for the Fab India team. They were brilliant in the way they engaged with the participants, build a rapport and ensure that they enjoy while learning! There was not a dull moment even for a minute during the day. The Plank activity and the learning out of the same was simply amazing. In no time could the participants make out the importance of ‘Out of Box’ thinking and moving out of ‘Lock-Ins’. The practical examples given during the session by SKOPE facilitator made it look so simple and easy. I can see my team applying these concepts at work place.”
VP & Business Head - Fab India
“The Gallup Strengths workshop and Aseem was phenomenal and I really appreciate tailoring the program for us. The bespoke training program was perfect for Accor Plus leaders in India. The training gave each one of us a clear insight of how effective our strengths would be, if implemented effectively. As recommended, action tools for each strength would definitely make an impact on leaders to grow in their respective areas. It was indeed a great learning experience and it has begun to impact our work culture positively already! Thank you SKOPE and Aseem for making a difference for us.”
