Under the direction of a renowned chef, several “executive teams of chefs” will come together (in ways they might not have the opportunity to do so during their day job) to prepare and cook a gourmet meal in a competitive, time-sensitive environment. Immediately following the Cincy Chef experience, there is a debriefing session to discuss and analyze what occurred and then evaluate the team experience. Participants will get a chance to explore the attributes and behaviors of high performing teams and how these can be applied to your team back in the real-world, work environment. The result? Not only will the participants come out of the competition a stronger team, but they will also witness each other in different ways outside their everyday paradigm. Unlikely leaders, initiators, doers, thinkers, decision makers and problem solvers may even emerge. At the end of the session your teams will come away with a new understanding of their own skill sets and the skills of others, and they will be better able to apply their team building strategies and leadership skills to the problems and challenges they meet each day at work.
