Building High-Trust Relationships & Optimal Team Performance Training Course


Course Overview

This two-day workshop is intended as a forum that will help establish team relationships and improved team performance. The format will include both traditional classroom discussions and an outdoor experiential non-traditional team-building event. This course is designed as collaboration between The Excellence Center and the Campus Recreation Center’s highly rated The Excellence Center Challenge Course.


This participative workshop consists of an inter-related series of presentations and activities that will introduce a set of guidelines commonly used in establishing better communications within a multi-locational organization.

There is normally a substantial pool of technical expertise on any team and as a result, this full-day workshop will steer away the technical aspects and instead focus on “soft skills” that are representative of team building, collaboration and effective communication.


Special attention will be given to the communication piece with additional focus on teams that are in-house versus teams dispersed geographically.
