Teamwork in the Workplace
Action Learning at Team Craft
Our programs get people actively involved in the learning. We combine experiential activities with specific skill training that is immediately useful. Seminars allow time for more in-depth discussions, personal assessment, and team action planning than an experiential team building program schedule. For added impact, they can be done in combination with a team building session, e.g., InterActive Teams or City Sleuths.
