The Active Learning Group

ALG’s active learning approach incorporates current learning theory with advanced facilitation tools and techniques to unleash the human potential that exists in organizations and school districts. We move individuals and teams past engagement to enlightenment and to a collective call to action. Through training and consultation we develop high performing leadership teams and align strategy, values, and business processes in a way that makes sense to all employees. The result is an organization that excels. Partnering with ALG is engaging, fun, and hyper focused on outcomes.


In 1987 we started creating adventures that would connect and inspire teams. We have since expanded to include adventures for everyone.

An Adventureworks teambuilding experience is carefully tailored to fit each company's culture and achieve specific objectives. Programs are fun and maximize value by relating back to the work environment.

Our team building programs emphasize cooperation and collaboration. We help individuals and teams reach beyond preconceived limits to accomplish what previously seemed impossible. We create an environment for teams to unleash their potential by discovering specific strengths and weaknesses. Communication concepts are introduced through challenges and problem-solving activities that require cooperative efforts of the whole team, and allow for the creativity of multiple solutions.

Whether you are looking for a team building experience, family adventure, or friendly outdoor activity our Adventure Parks have something for everyone! Tree top zip line tours are appropriate for youth, families, couples, baby boomers, and active elderly. Aerial trekking courses include a series of obstacles like swinging bridges, cargo nets, stump crossings, cables traverses and more, all located in the tree top canopy. Teambuilding is customized for each group.

David Markwardt Consulting, LLC 

Two of the most important traits of good leadership are to be trustworthy and to respect followers. These are traits I teach in my trainings. By definition, leadership means that there are followers. How those followers are treated is of paramount importance. They must be treated with respect. I bring a great deal of enthusiasm and depth to my trainings. The power of self-reflection  is built into them. I ask many open-ended questions. It is important to slow down and think. Good leadership requires this. It is hard to do this at work where the pace is fast and demanding. At work managers tend to have their heads down solving problems. At my trainings, managers have the opportunity to slow down, lift their heads up, look around, see the big picture and self reflect. These things are powerful and promote individual transformational change."
