Team Building Workshops


Your team deserves a chance to get outside of the four walls and re-energize. So send them back to college, at the #hottestcollegeinAmerica, the University of Cincinnati. Here, you will spend concentrated time on ideas, strategies, and priorities your team needs in a comfortable environment.

You will have fun at one of the best collegiate recreation centers in the country, building and bonding together the Bearcat Way. After a day of immersion in our strategy development and team building experience – exercising both mind and body – your team will have fresh ideas, gain perspective about colleagues, and will leave with a boost in morale. The morning session begins with a speaker specifically selected to spark ideas and conversation for the Strategic Planning Session.

After lunch, participants will spend time engaging in team-building exercises designed to bring team members closer through various activities that use both the body and the mind.

Benefits of the Build & Bond Workshops

  • A better understanding of the organization’s Mission, Vision, and Strategic Initiatives
  • Identification of where your strategy may leave you exposed to risk or missed opportunity
  • Recognition of areas of improvement to better execute your strategic goals
  • Higher employee morale
