Colorado Corporate Leadership Development and Team Building
Group Outings – Experiential Adventures
A day outdoors – biking, hiking, fly-fishing, climbing, whitewater rafting, sightseeing – can be a meaningful perk for your employees, with time for individual restoration and connecting with colleagues. Colorado Wilderness Corporate and Teams works closely with your organization to coordinate the day’s adventures, including transportation, meals, and other logistics. With our professional guides and attention to participants’ experience, abilities, and fitness levels, we ensure safety, fun, and a day of lasting impact. These types of shared adventures can be a valuable component of leadership development and building productive teams.
Corporate Events and Team Building – Transforming Teams
For companies seeking to improve teamwork, trust, communication, or collaboration, we offer a wide range of team building experiences. From an amusing 2-hour scavenger hunt, an evening Iron Chef event, a full-day Wilderness Amazing Race, to a multi-day course centered on team dynamics and bonding, we design each event to meet your goals and objectives. We understand that sometimes furthering camaraderie through entertaining programs with a sense of humor is most beneficial. However, other groups benefit from challenges designed to delve deeper into communication patterns, enhance problem solving, or build trust. We work closely with each organization to develop custom programs that guarantee high impact and worthwhile experiences.
Experiential Leadership Development – Creating Leaders
In addition to team building, we offer specific programs for both established and emerging leaders. These programs give leaders insight into their own strengths and areas needing development, considering the opportunities and challenges inherent in directing a team. Our skilled facilitators can effectively build individual and group awareness while supporting participants through a variety of exercises and activities. Our team members partner with your organization to establish the most appropriate plan for incorporating the lessons from the event into daily work practice. We use evidence-based research and years of experience to create custom leadership development programs.
Executive Retreats – Positive and Powerful Experiences
An effective executive team often needs uninterrupted time to strategize methodically, examine strengths and weaknesses, and determine strategies for success. Our Executive Retreats are built to bring out the best in the company’s top brass. We develop activities that test physical and cognitive skills and help companies understand how their executives deal with challenging situations. We will create a program that’s engaging and responsive to a company’s needs, while allowing for individual and team growth.
Health and Wellness – Maximizing Success and Happiness
Many studies show that every dollar invested in successful health and wellness programs results in monetary and other savings. Effective wellness programs lead to greater productivity and higher morale as well. According to the Harvard Business Review, active collaboration “with external partners, including vendors, can provide a program with some of its essential components and many… desirable enhancements.” At Colorado Wilderness Corporate and Teams, we design wellness programs that excite employees, give them a sense of accomplishment, and result in both physical and mental health improvements. We can help you build a wellness culture through unique packages that will either complement or supplement existing wellness plans.
Community Impact Events – Positively Impacting Our Communities
Giving back to the community or raising funds for a specific cause can motivate employees and develop leadership skills, while supporting a corporate value of philanthropy. We create distinctive activities, sometimes including friendly competition, that can inspire and excite your team. Our signature Hard As Nails Obstacle Mud Race (www.hardasnails-obstacle-mud-
