Teamwork and Leadership Virtual Scavenger Hunt
Hello Facilitator Friends!

I hope this email finds you and yours doing well.  I'm excited to share a new Virtual Scavenger Hunt we have built out  I have had a lot of requests from small teams that want to participate in one of our Virtual Scavenger Hunts, but didn't want to have one custom-built for them.  We designed one with a Teamwork and Leadership Theme, that can be done in a 60-minute time frame.  It's so fun!  We intentionally built it utilizing different clues than I used in my other two Facilitator Virtual Scavenger Hunts, so in case you participated in either of those and are looking for new clues, you could get some new ideas for your own Virtual Scavenger Hunts.  Plus, another bonus, you and your team could go through the hunt to do a little team building for your team.  As facilitators, we don't often get the opportunity (or don't make time) to play or work on our own teams, so this could be a great team bonding event for your staff.

How it works:  Click on this link and select the number of people who will participate in the hunt. You can choose from 1-200, and prices start at $25 per person. Upon check out you will receive an automatic download that will provide instructions and a tutorial video to share with your participants before the hunt begins.  Happy hunting!

Also, last week I lead my first in-person training since March.  It went well!  Chris and I decided to discuss this in our podcast, so check out this week's Podcast episode:  Michelle, What Was Your Recent Face-To-Face Training Experience Like While Safely Distancing?

Best wishes for an Intentionally Full week!  

Have fun out there,

Personal news!  Congrats to my son Dawson for finally getting to participate in his high school graduation ceremony.  In one week's time, he graduated high school, took out his first car loan and bought a new-to-him car, and started college.  So proud of this kid and can't wait to see what he does in this world.  My heart is FULL!
I can't believe you made it all the way to the bottom of this email! Kudos!
