When teams work remotely, it’s important that time is made for recognition and celebration. Global Integration’s team of trainers is no exception.
Our Global Integration team meeting last week kicked off with some time for activities together: first up a little healthy competition learning archery, followed by some genuine team work building rafts in teams, and them some exhilarating white water rafting. (There are some fantastic shots of this on our Flickr account.) This part of our agenda allowed people who hadn’t previously met to get to know each other, and time for those who had travelled long distances by plane to acclimatize and get used to the time difference.
The evening was spent celebrating Phil Stockbridge’s long service with Global Integration – 13 years, no less.
And the following day was heads down looking into important company issues, new developments and, importantly, some formalized sharing of learning exercises that work for the individual trainers.
All of which we are sharing simply to demonstrate that we do practice what we preach!
