|The team members at the ropes workshop|
A group of 40 members of Bosques Altamira participated in a series of ropes dynamics and conferences given by the Excellence Center of the Francisco Marroquín University.
The workshop started with a lecture on teamwork by Sergio Enríquez, vicedean of the UFM’s Business School.
Afterwards, the participants went to the ropes mountain to feel and experience the learned concepts with ropes dynamics. With the objective of expanding the comfort zone, the participants had the opportunity to perform high ropes dynamics. It was an incredible group, compromised and capable of overcoming obstacles and accepting challenges.
The team had luch at the student´s center terrace; in the afternoon they participated in a sounds workshop to explore other teamwork aspects. The closure was headed by Alvaro Andrade, representative of Bosques Altamira.
Some of the comments of the participants were:
