Chief Lam works with Stybel Peabody/Board Options to prepare delicious team building experiences whose lessons can be enjoyed for years after the event. 


Chef Lam will have your team/board prepare a meal under his direction. In preparing this meal, we will cook up some dilemma that parallels a complex issue faced by the team in the “real world.” The team will have to stick with “tried and true” or leverage its resources to “think outside the box” to complete the task.


As the finished product is consumed by the team, Stybel Peabody/Board Options consultants will lead a discussion about what participants learned from their kitchen experiences that could be applied at work.
