Wyeth Corporate Communications Hones
communication, and leadership are hallmarks of our Team Champion
session which is based on the sport of Olympic rowing. Taught by
master team builders and World and Olympic Champion
coaches, this session moved the team out of its comfort zone for
a day of unique training. According to Assistant Vice President Sharon Prince "Our team had a
great day, and I think one of the most powerful components was that each person could take
what they needed - for some it was the experience of being in the swing with a team, for
some it was one or more of the
"8 Secrets," for others it was just having some down time (so to speak!)
to get to know members of the team. All in all a great day - although our armchair athletes were quite sore." Click on the pictures to enlarge and enjoy!
