Comments from feedback
"The very next day we were in a meeting and everyone reflected on
what they had experienced from the workshop. Getting everyone to use
the "other side of their brain" worked. The new discussions
were seamless and any previous barriers were not a factor. To me that
"This exercise involves more teamwork than any other team building exercise
I've ever done. It showed me how important listening and reaching consensus is
for a team. Also, how we can learn together and make a finished product with
little experience just by relying on each other. I love the right brain approach."
"Because we mostly work virtual and did not really know each other very
well, this was a fantastic opportunity to team and come to know one another.
I'm more open to other members of the team."
