Location

Myers Briggs team building workshop locations should provide conditions conducive to openness and learning. Due to the nature of the content of the True Colors Workshop, participants are required to explore their deeper views and beliefs and to engage in a high level of self-disclosure. The ideal setting is one in which,

  • Participants can remove themselves from the workday world and stretch their mind without interruptions
  • There is natural light and a feeling of openness
  • There is room for breakout discusions (breakout rooms are not required if separate workgroups can meet without crowding each other)

We can help arrange the meeting for your location or work with you to select an appropriate offsite meeting location.

Note: offsite locations may result in additional costs.
