Leverage Shared Interdisciplinary Knowledge and Creativity to Accomplish Exceptional Results

Your success as a team member or team leader depends upon your ability to leverage the expertise and creativity of your team members to accomplish exceptional results in an increasingly dynamic and complex work environment.

We have all been on teams where an absence of trust, unresolved conflict, and lack of shared commitment and accountability yielded fractured working relationships and mediocre results.
In this workshop you will discover ways to overcome common barriers to effective teamwork and strengthen group problem solving. You will participate in a team-based, skill building activity using the power of a land exploration simulation to develop practical learning experiences in leadership, group decision making, interpersonal communication, planning, resource utilization, group process, motivation, risk taking, conflict management, and power and influence.
