New Teams

New Teams

Whether you’re welcoming new team members or constructing new departments or working groups, connecting with colleagues is key to understanding and adopting the core values of the organization and opening lines of communication for future collaboration.

We offer single-day programs filled with basecamp activities or multi-day, multi-element courses that level the playing field with activities and adventures that challenge participants physically and mentally. Our facilitators take participants through a series of challenges followed by debriefs that ask tough questions and produce memorable results.

Taking lessons from the field to the office, your team members will have a shared experience to draw from. Participants better understand their role in a values-driven company, with a peer network forged by pushing their limits together.

“Perhaps most importantly, COBS provided an opportunity for the company to invest in ‘growing’ each team member; adding value by creating loyalty, team cohesion and staff retention.”

– Remy Spreeuw, Editor, 5280 Magazine
