HRDQ's Team Adventure Series

HRDQ's Team Adventure Series is a fun and memorable way to demonstrate the concept of team synergy — the phenomenon that occurs when a team achieves greater results than the sum of its parts. Each simulation provides a safe, open environment in which participants can learn and practice key process skills that lead to synergy, including problem solving, communicating effectively, managing and resolving conflict, and consensus decision making.
