Review from a recent Team Building Workshop:  ”Thanks again for Friday’s team building morning! The staff had a wonderful time and I received more thanks yesterday and today for the opportunity for them to relax, create and play. The beginning exercise within the circle of trees was very meaningful and several staff said they had not expected that to happen and it was a very special way to set the tone for the morning. You have a gift for setting the stage for a meaningful team building morning. It will be fun to see the finished projects and even more important will be the memory each staff person has of the creative process that they went through to complete their unique design. Thanks again for a very special day.”
