Success By Association - March/April 2017 - 13

"It never ceases to amaze me how much
closer we get as a team after one of our
retreats. It provides such an excellent
opportunity for us to come together and
work on the betterment of our program
and really brainstorm ideas for our
forward movement. Everyone's voice is
heard and we enjoy our time together."

u	Productivity-Productivity sessions target large scope
areas where efficiency can improve. Brainstorm what areas
these may be and rely on input from your participants
to guide the retreat. Reflect on these initial insights
throughout the planning process.

For more information, contact Tom Spong at tom@eameetings.com

u	Environment-Offline conversations focusing on intangibles
to drastically improve inner-organization communication.
Take a step aside with your superior or your staff. Enjoy
a walk to discuss a few topics offline. The act of walking
together sets a relaxed mood for the conversation. A clear
mind is often the best to connect with.

Partnering with clients for success since 1993.

u	Reward-Recognition incentivizes team members and
rewards their achievements. Employees who are applauded
receive due credit and other employees are motivated
to match their colleagues' successes and rise to the top.
Be sure to always focus back to the positive and what is
already working within your team.
u	Conversation-Environments conducive to non-hierarchical
feedback and exchange are key. Your team relies on multiperspective, viewpoints to generate an honest expression
of your dynamisms. Ten times out of ten, relying on this
diversity of opinions elevates progress and pivots your
team to greater productivity. Ask what breakout spaces are
available and do not limit your team to walled spaces.
u	Balance-Rest and play. Incorporate activities as a group
whether it be morning yoga, which many resorts offer, or an
evening cornhole tournament. Explore all the options the
resort offers for meeting your goals for a good time. z
