Impactful & effective workshop. Cheese Hunt was very useful since it brought out the learning to be a participative passive yet effective leader. Learnings/ reflections around change management and leadership post activity discussions was high. brought out the impact of "I". Clarity of briefings for the adventure activities & comfort levels in terms of safety processes and equipment was perfect.
