Participants will identify 10 primary traits that highly successful groups demonstrate in order to succeed. Daniel Goleman's work shows that emotional intelligence is twice as important for success as IQ and technical skills combined. Exactly the skills needed at work, home and in our communities.
- Participants will actively engage in problem solving activities that will lead to the identification of individual and group strengths needed for success.
- Participants will practice specific team building skills such as interpersonal communication, trust, and leadership. Discussion will revolve around how these skill are used or under-utilized in the workplace.
- Individuals will learn and practice the Self-Determination Theory by Edward Deci and Emotional Intelligence Theory by Daniel Goldman. Discussion will revolve around how these theories play-out in the workplace and how individuals and managers can use this information to increase productivity.
- Individuals will complete the course feeling energized, motivated and successful. This will transfer back to the workplace as individuals recognize and value individual strengths that lead to team success.

Primarily working professionally in the field of Experiential Education since 1992; leading youth trips, building and inspecting challenge courses, facilitating educational and corporate groups.
