It’s that time of year again: minimag time. What, you thought I was going to say finals time? While it’s true that finals are here, I don’t want to blather on about them. And since you’re here reading instead of studying, I’m going to take a guess and say that you also don’t want me … Read More

2014 Scribendi Team Building Workshop

September 5, 2014

Team buildings either can make or break an organization that is just starting off. That awkward, first encounter with any new group of people can almost be too painful to swallow in the moment, but if handled correctly, looking back will encourage laughter and a good deal of classic reminiscing.
