Team Building

Purpose

This team building workshop uses the Zentangle® Method of creating abstract art to strengthen team bonds. No artistic experience is necessary. Under the guidance of Certified Zentangle Teacher Sacil Armstrong, participants use art to define an individual work life need and a personal commitment to the group. From this foundation, the team discusses personal values and translates those into a more effective group collaboration.

In the half-day session, participants put insights and concepts into practice, using real life work situations. The team practices effective communication, negotiates work life agreements, and completes a group project. Practicing asking for what you want and negotiating an actual agreement builds new neural pathways to help change behavior. Contact us to schedule a workshop today.
