“Our rowing experience at the Pocock Center was one of the most effective team development activities I’ve ever done. Each member of our team brought to the water different personal experiences, different skill levels and unique expectations. The real challenge was for a group of leaders who are experts at their jobs, to suddenly become beginners, and sometimes awkward beginners. I think that we all grew as individuals and teammates from the experience.” – BECU Leader
“We had fun, we learned to work together differently, and we have a lot to talk about that’s helping bring the team together in different working groups. In terms of meeting my expectations for the event it certainly hit the mark. It’s giving me plenty to work with as conversations starters but it also has the benefit of adding new stories to our tribal history.” –Russell King, Principal Software Engineering Manager
The MBA Leadership & Teamwork Practicum from the University of Washington Foster School of Business did a learn to row day at the beginning of September to prepare for the year ahead.
