Learn by dropping the ball

Juggling Your Team into a Growth Mindset Culture

Where Dropping the Ball Breeds Champions

We’re a Portland-based team building experience teaching employees around the U.S. how to juggle to provide company leaders with powerful juggling frameworks for cultivating growth-driven teams.

Because creating an engaged, tight-knit workforce that lives for tackling challenges is how you future-proof success.

Creating a culture that encourages true ability through failing forward invites your group of insatiable learners to broaden their capabilities:


Experience the struggles of picking up a totally new skill from zero – making mistakes, dropping the balls repeatedly, and persisting through the frustration. This normalizes failure as an inherent part of the learning process.


Collaborate by juggling in pairs and groups, fostering accountability and realizing how group growth benefits everyone.


Watch seemingly “uncoordinated” colleagues gradually improve through consistent practice, shattering myths about fixed talent.

“I can’t stress enough how much I appreciate working for a place that took the time it did today to teach us how to juggle! I walked away today from our meeting reminded and re-inspired.”
