So you need team-building...
but why team-build with High 5?

Liz Moore explains...

I could tell you our staff is made up of a team of experts in the field with over 90 years of combined experience. I could also tell you our custom designed programs are goal oriented and focused around your specific needs and interests.

But that is not what makes High 5 stand out, nor solely what makes our programming strong and highly successful.

Our team is not only made up of passionate and dedicated individuals, but together they have a unique relationship. One benefit of a small intimate training team is we can meet regularly to discuss programming, challenge one another to think differently, and support and encourage each other. Building our full time team to four people, and gradually adding to our group of contract staff has happened slowly over time, but the choice of each team member has always been careful and deliberate.

"Like any team we have our challenges, but I find myself finally a part of a group of people who truly practice what they preach, and that's unusual", says Ryan McCormick.

What does this mean for you? Even if you work with only one of our staff, it's as though our entire team is working for you. Our offices are the creative grounds for designing your team-building experience and once we've communicated with you, each of us may challenge each other and have input on how to best serve your team.

We each so passionately believe in the work we do and what it can provide for growing communities, which is why we make sure to practice it ourselves. We not only meet to discuss programs, but also to check in about our own intra-personal relationships. We have lunch together every day - and I can tell you, laughter is never in short supply.

As our client, you can be sure we will hold your community to the same standards we hold ourselves. Our dedication to a high level of communication keeps us aware of our challenges and working as active responders to any potential issues. We too, are a team simply trying to do our best in order to perform our best at work, and we'd love to help you do the same. From higher productivity to happier staff...we can personally tell you it's worth it.

Interested in learning how your team can benefit from a High 5 team building experience? Give us a call!

Jim, Chris, Ryan & Liz
