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.

Align specializes in working with executives and managers that are women. Women bring a unique set of skills and challenges to the table as leaders.  I help guide leaders through those challenges and opportunities. Much of the journey involves finding our genuine selves in a sea of opinions about who and how we should be.  Work life balance does not exist. It’s different for everyone. I help leaders figure out what they need to excel in their personal and professional lives. 

Additionally, a large portion of Align’s work involves the senior leadership teams of non-profits in Roxbury, Dorchester and Mattapan, the 3 areas of Boston with the greatest need.  Align follows a specific model for 2-day offsites, which encourages open and courageous communication, feedback, action planning and aligning personal and organizational goals. This work is supported by ongoing coaching.

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."
