We decided the afternoon before our staff Christmas party would be a good time to do some team building – so we got creative!
We finished work at 12 pm and had lunch together before breaking off into small groups. In our groups, we created a visual metaphor for where we think Raise the Bar is now and the components, skills and mindset we need to get to where we want to be.
We looked at:
Where are we now?
Where do we have the opportunity to be?
How will we get there?
What challenges will we face
What behaviours & skills will we need?
How will it feel when we have got there?
We had metaphors like snakes and ladders, a tree that isn’t fully grown, a blender and two desert islands.
We learnt a lot about where each of us sees the business today, where we want to be, how we plan on getting there and the things that could hold us back…
