Workflows are stored in an xml file. You can copy the workflows xml definition and ppaste it to some other project area's tempalte.

Do to so:
-Open RTC Eclipse Client
-Login to your CCM repository
-Select the project that you want to copy the workflow
-Right click on it and "Open" it
-You will see some tabs under the opened project.
-One of them contains the xml that I am talking about.
-Find the workflow that you want and copy it.

That should work.
