Team Building, Bonding & Entertainment in Kayaks

10 May 2023

Many organizations have done the same things over and over while expecting different results. This applies to team building & bonding as well.

Dynamic Change as a Strategy for Success

26 April 2023

Don't Waste Time on Unproductive Business Events, Do This Instead

It can be difficult to decide what events are worth attending. You want to learn, network, and have a good time. You need to get your money's worth. Your time is valuable and you don't want to waste it on unproductive events.

Be INTENTIONAL with the events you attend.

Do your research. Determine your goals. Create a budget for business outings. Ask about who else is attending. Check out the event website to discover who is speaking, what breakout sessions will be available and how you can learn from the material being presented.

01 February 2023

"Hey everyone! Gather in the conference room for a spur of the moment brainstorming session!"

When organizational leaders announce this employees react differently. The outspoken extroverts are excited to share their big ideas. Their minds are already churning with input they are excited to share during the meeting.
