Elite Team Champion, Denver, CO

In Team Champion, a 1.5-day experiential workshop, participants receive an unparalleled crash course in high performance teamwork and inspirational leadership as they become part of a rowing crew under the guidance of expert-level coaches. Rowing becomes a metaphor for assessing team dynamics, achieving flow and balance and learning to modulate yourself for the sake of the team. Ultimately, the crew learns to truly draw on each other’s strengths to achieve optimal performance.

Work Skills of the Future

Through shared experiences, online resources, opportunities and assignments, this year we will work to build the skills identified as critical for success in the future. Quarterly communications and information will be shared with Elite members to help them understand what these skills are, why they are important, and how they can enhance their own skillset.
