Customized Workshops

Customized Workshop Services

Why schedule a customized workshop?

There is training, and then there is a transformative experience. Why not have both? This is our approach to designing one-of-a-kind learning experiences. It should be memorable and relevant to operational and individual needs so there is both buy-in and application once the formal learning has concluded. All of our programs listed below are designed to be half-day workshops. If you are looking for something different, contact us so we can help!

  • Community Service Workshops

    Turn a service event into a engaging and impactful team retreat. Combining service to our community and intentional bonding with staff is a combination for success. We will support you and your staff in creating a memorable and relevant retreat experience for your team while also serving our local community. 

    "Community service is an opportunity to create collaborative experiences for university employees to work together on projects that result in life changing outcomes for our local community. Employees donate their time and are making a difference in the lives of others who need our support. Engaging with our community in these projects develops new skills and promotes team worker, patience, and persistence. Serving others gives us purpose and benefits those that are serving as much as it benefits those that are being served."
