LINCROFT, NJ - On Tuesday, January 29th, members of the student-athlete advisory committee had an opportunity to participate in a specialized team building workshop. The theme was setting the groundwork for leadership and how to keep others engaged and involved.
David Rosado, SAAC co-chair reflected: "It was great to put our trust in one another. Working as a team to complete, what seemed to be an impossible task, was encouraging. We had our eyes open to the strength of teamwork."
Led by Dan Davis, a motivational speaker and trainer who specializes in M.O.O.M.B.A (My Only Obstacle Must Be Attitude) and positive empowerment, the workshop consisted of various problem-solving drills that could only be overcome through teamwork.
“Yesterday was an absolutely amazing experience for our student-athletes,” commented SAAC advisor Katie Miller. “Seeing our student-athletes come together and collectively participate in these team building exercises was awesome. They listened to each other and were able to succeed in accomplishing each task. It is moments like these that truly show the distance the student- athletes are willing to go to succeed.”
