Every year, we close the office for a couple days and trek up to the mountains to recenter and realign our agency’s goals for the next year. With the addition of a few amazing team members it is a way to get to know everyone a little better – for example, we found out that Angela spends her summers in Rome, Willie won a gold medal in rugby at the Maccabiah Games in Israel, Lynn has a background in fashion design, and Dawn is an NCAA sharpshooter.
Since we’re such a small team, it’s important to recognize that our agency’s growth depends on our individual team’s growth. That’s why we determined our individual strengths and discussed how as a team we can lean on each other. We strive to constantly push each other to make better work or look at things from a different perspective.
We worked with the talented Amanda Gulino from A Better Monday to develop an itinerary of exercises that would help us connect as a team and build towards our goals. This included diving deep into Honey’s vision, mission, values, and much more. Of course, we ended the first day by the lake at sunset presenting our vision boards to each other, which was a highlight of the trip. We shared what drives us, where our hearts lie, and our personal goals.
So, it’s simple, our why is to empower passion. Empower passion in our clients, in each other, and in our community. Our overall goal of this retreat was to lay a solid foundation as we evolve into our 10th year as a company — we have something very, very exciting in the works. We are bursting at the seams to share it with you this year.
Thank you to our awesome team for showing up fully and doing the work, and to Josh for keeping us fed on ridiculously delicious food. Cheers to the future and making some incredible work for incredible people!
