The Ropes Course of Life
Every year, our staff embarks on an adventure together, our annual staff retreat. This is a time for us to be together, work on our team building skills, and step outside of our comfort zones while relying on each other for help, the same way we do at work every single day.
This year, we tried a ropes course together in Blue Ridge. Like everything we do, we gave it our all! Regardless of how far individual staff members could climb, everyone was communicative, supportive, and…. hilarious. For those of us who couldn’t make it all the way to the top, we were cheerleaders for the brave members of our staff who made it to the top against all odds!
It’s amazing how much you can learn from spending an afternoon wearing helmets with your coworkers and it made us all grateful for each other, and more confident in our ability to support our participants and tackle the year together! I’m glad to have these wonderful people here to help me on the ropes course of life every day!
