When life pushes you into the deep end of the pool are you going to sink to the bottom or start swimming?

For over 15 years, Derrick Sier has studied group and social dynamics in the collegiate, not-for-profit, religious, educational and corporate environment. It is through this observation that his company OMOS Team Building was created. He believes relationship and team play are the avenues through which great groups are formed.
