What professional development workshop does your team need to be more successful?
Did you know our professional development workshops can help your team
- communicate more effectively,
- have more productive meetings, and
- solve problems collaboratively?
Do you want to build a team that understands and embraces the possibilities that come from being actively engaged leaders in your community?
The Institute offers professional development workshops that can be scheduled independently or added to conferences already scheduled at the Institute. Although we love hosting your team on the mountain, we understand this isn’t always possible for groups. In this case, let us bring our workshops to you! Each workshop provides a different experience, from leadership development to building mutual understanding, and they all draw from the Rockefeller Ethic.

Walks with the Governor
A leadership development experience tying the life lessons that made Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller such an influential leader to sites on his historic former cattle farm. This “walk” (indoor and outdoor versions are available) through the Governor’s life and across his former homestead incorporates team building dialogue exercises, personal reflection, and a close examination of why his legacy is still impacting Arkansas today.
Tools for Respectful Dialogue
The Institute has a team of trained facilitators that specialize in designing meetings and dialogues around difficult subjects. Let us show you how we design those meetings and share some of the Tools we use to do it.
This workshop introduces the components of civil discourse. It provides the necessary tools to encourage respectful conversation when working with people who don’t share the same opinions or beliefs.
Dynamic Development: Type to Team
Using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® assessment and lessons from Winthrop Rockefeller, each participant can learn more about themselves and those around them in order to improve personal interactions and accomplish more as a team.
Culinary Team Building Workshops
Winthrop Rockefeller knew well the benefits and camaraderie a good meal can provide. We took inspiration from the pleasure he derived in hosting collaborators on Petit Jean Mountain and created three workshops infused with fun, good humor, and just the right amount of challenge.
