Working with a group of executives that are all re-starting their academic careers in pursuit of an Executive MBA is a challenge that I welcome. For the 2nd year in a row I have had the honor of facilitating a two day workshop with the Simon Graduate School of Business – University of Rochester Executive MBA program.

Here is what one participant had to say about the Team Building & Leadership Program;
I had attended a few retreats and participated in several team building exercises over the years. Quite frankly, I did not expect much prior to coming to Simon School weekend retreat. I am still amazed at how Mike’s fun and engaging personality, his strength based approach to working with individuals and teams, and his careful choice of exercises that have relevance to the context of the meeting turned me into a believer. We started the weekend as 5 individuals and we left the retreat a TEAM. Great job Mike.

Another great testimonial for a Executive MBA student;
I met Michael Cardus at a retreat kicking off the Executive MBA program at Rochester University’s Simon School of Business. In a fast-paced day and a half, he managed to get newly formed teams of students started up and equipped with the tools we will need to establish a successful group process. Very energetic, talking at a hundred miles per hour, Michael manages to combine real content with a light note and most importantly some brief but very insightful exercises to apply the newly acquired wisdom and – importantly – illustrate where things can go wrong. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend Michael Cardus’ Create-Learning to anybody seeking to build successful teams.
