services that are motivational, energizing, and build esprit de corps.

These sessions help to break down barriers between people creating a more
trusting and open work environment.
Enrichment - Our "Breaking
Boundaries" programs are one-half day to multiple-day adventure experiences
designed to build individual and team competence. Working in teams is
required in today's organizations. Conflicts over mission, values, turf,

solving problems, leading/following, and team collaboration.

- A Team Learning Event
innovation in organizational team building. TEAMJAM is a celebratory experience
that embraces the concepts of change, growth, and learning for an organization.
TEAMJAM is a custom-designed experiential learning event to practice teamwork
skills in a multi-tasking environment. It combines the spirits of competition,
collaboration and serious play producing an opportunity for participants
to assert their team skills, interpersonal relations, problem solving
and creative abilities while co-existing in both collaborative and competitive
relationships. We liken it to the merging of a rock concert, a circus,
a theatre performance and training seminar into one highly motivating
and energizing event.
We will customize the TEAMJAM experience to integrate your
key business (or meeting agenda topics) into cognitive and affective activities
that produce relevant information the entire gathering will see and reflect
on. We will integrate any relevant themes that will be present in your
larger meeting agenda. The outputs produced through a TEAMJAM are targeted
at your key issues you want people thinking and dialoging about.
