"This wasn’t covered in the new employee orientation."

Every day, young professionals are called on to deliver bad news, resolve conflicts, interact confidently with superiors, and develop meaningful relationships with peers. But very few have the tools to handle these situations effectively, leading to poor customer service, high employee turnover, and an inability to develop within the organization.

The costs can be enormous.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

 

WE BELIEVE IN DOING REAL WORK, NOT FICTIONAL EXERCISES.

When participants leave, they will have used the principles they learned to move the needle on tasks currently on their plate.  

WE BELIEVE IN LISTENING MORE THAN TALKING.

The answers to your team’s biggest challenges are found within their own experiences. It’s our job to help them recover that wisdom.

WE BELIEVE MEANINGFUL WORK AND PLAY ARE SYNONYMOUS.

What do you really want from your team? Imagination, creativity, excitement, ownership, intensity, focus? Yep - that’s why we play in our workshops.
