No Nonsense Team Building

Go home with new skills, a new understanding of nature, and stories worth telling. We don't build arbitrary structures using tape, won't put anyone "on the spot", and no trust falls. Ever. We promise. Our corporate team building activities are tailored to fit a wide range of interests, outdoor comfort levels, and physical abilities.

Attention Restoration

Our curriculum is designed based on "Attention Restoration Theory", a concept first introduced in 1989 and expanded upon as recently as 2014. We use "cognitive engagement strategies" in natural settings, which have been shown to return 'attentional resources' to people very effectively. From what the research tells us, it would be best for all us of to routinely take time to just think outside. Let Work Shift be your sherpa, we know where to go.

Always Fresh; Never Frozen

The total freeze of productivity during corporate team building activities is a problem. Why should you have to forfeit production to get bonding? Take the offsite camaraderie straight into the meeting space. Get a change of scenery without blowing up your inbox and falling behind.

Light a fire

Make your next meeting or team building activity the most productive and rewarding yet.


Unique Corporate Team Building Activities

Optimal Work Sherpa

The most effective workday. Move business forward and have fun doing it. Use meeting space inside a conference room, or get set up riverside. Break up the day and re-focus the team. Work out of a conference room or meet in different outdoor locations throughout the day. This program reduces burnout, promotes clear thinking, reduces stress, and strengthens bonds. Take the time to take it all in and make the time to get it all done.

Length: 1 - 4 days

Wilderness Relaxation Retreat

The most effective day. La Dolce Vida. Waterfalls, rivers, mountains, deep forest, rolling wide open ranch land, the ocean off Hawaii, your call. Massage therapists, guided hikes, delicious food, optional yoga classes & meditations, a stunning backdrop for a excellent team. Set up in a cabin or get down on some glamping. Relax and connect with your team away from the grind. Head back to the office with new life.

Length: 4 days

Braden DeLonay


    Braden has been outside with groups of all ages sharing skills in sustainability, nature connection, and team building since 2009. He carries a deep respect for nature and people, and creating symbiotic relationships between the two has been his passion for his entire adult life. He spends lots of time in his beloved wood shop, and playing fetch with a stick-obsessed dog named Star. He was educated about sustainability in central Texas, and the wilderness in the forests of central Maine; he now resides on a 25 acre permaculture farm just outside of Austin, Tx.
