Developing high-performing teams is our work, and we are proud of what we do.

A nationally recognized leader in the field of experience-based learning, CTLC has provided programs for students and professionals since our beginning in 1997. Our custom programs range from short energizer sessions to multi-day trainings that combine dynamic, experiential learning with models that make sense for you and your team.

"There are several reasons that I like using Hoffman [Challenge Course]... For me it has always been tremendously helpful in my intern orientation days.  It lets all of us start to get to know each other's character, nature, ability, our boundaries; people automatically show their comfort level for participations."    -- Phil Syphrit, Cornell Plantations Interns Program

"Everyone from your staff who has ever helped direct our program has always been enjoyable, professional, skillful, and very kind.                                                                                                                                                                                             

We look forward to working with you!
