Benefits of Team Building

Is it time to interrupt the normal routine at work? Are you ready for a wake-up call? When we embrace new adventures, we are interrupting our everyday flow – for the better! In a 2011 New Yorker profile (B. Bilger), neuroscientist David Eagleman explains how our bias for the familiar affects how fast we think time flies; “This explains why we think that time speeds up when we grow older, why childhood summer seem to go on forever, while old age slips by while we’re dozing. The more familiar the world becomes, the less information your brain writes down.”

EMPOWER Leadership has a track record for team building and leadership development. Since 2009, our facilitators have helped thousands of people across hundreds of different companies celebrate current successes while planning for future success. Our programs are designed to help each participant (1) increase confidence in themselves and their team, (2) build and improve trust relationships, and (3) improve rapport and increase motivation to work collaboratively. By blending fun and exciting adventures with customized team building and leadership models, EMPOWER can help your team members form closer bonds, communicate more effectively, and perform at more efficient and confident levels.
