Archie Bunker or Mr. Rogers -
What is 'organizational culture' and how does it affect our business and our lives?' All too often those at the top of an organization become embedded in the financial, regulatory and administrative tasks inherent in management and/or ownership. Occasionally, it pays to leave the ivory tower and mingle with the common folk. This original presentation can provide dialog, new perspective, clarification and sometimes new direction.

Reflective Memories Writing Workshop -
Writing from the Heart
Writing your memoirs or keeping a journal can be a spiritually moving experience. Whether you’re writing for publication or taking notes for future generations, your insights and memories play a role in the development of your perspective, personality and outlook. Sharing this through the written word sometimes requires patience, objectivity and honesty.
This workshop is not about sentence structure and grammar, how to find a literary agent or selling your book, but about reflective thought and the process of self-understanding. It can help you to remember and organize your memories, motivate and get you started as well as helping to define those life experiences and how they relate to your world.
Most successful organizations know that to achieve maximum effectiveness, they must work as a team, but occasionally, the team spirit must be re-awakened and coached from a new perspective. Activities have included art projects, new games, physical challenges and more.
