What We Think

The Secret Circle, A Team Building Activity

This team building exercise is focused on expression and reflection.  Seat your team in a circle; everyone should be facing outward.  There should be one facilitator who asks the questions in a series of rounds, who can also be a participant.

Depending on the size of your group, select a number of people that will enter the circle for each round. Everyone sitting should have their eyes closed for as long as they are seated; each chosen participant enters the middle of the circle. Questions, like the ones listed below, are asked and each person in the circle must go around touching the shoulder of as many team members they associate the questions with.

Are You Practicing the 3 Cs?

Our focus during the first five weeks of our 7-week business detox (#businessdetox) campaign (Week 1 - Win Back Your Workspace with 6 Easy Tips, Week 2 – What's Your Business' VMVGI?, Week 3 - Finding Your Business' Function, Week 4 - 3 Tips to Enhance the Experience of Attaining Goals and Week 5 - Listen to Each Team Member, One-on-One)  has been internal.  It's Week 6 and we now expand our scope externally to include clients because they are just as much a part of how healthy your business is as its internal functions.

Communication is typically the first step that gets stumbled upon when something goes wrong.  In retrospect, it is usually evident that there was either some sort of miscommunication, or rather… no communication.  Strengthening the communication within your company is one of the best ways to avoid foul-ups.  This extends to your clients as well; good communication with clientele is essential for customer satisfaction = good customer service!

These three C’s intertwine infinitely during any given workday; we’re going to teach you THE WAYS to improve your communication skills and boost your customer service!

Listen to Each Team Member, One-on-One

Hello Business Detoxers! During week 4 of #businessdetox, we discussed the 3 Tips to Enhance the Experience of Attaining Goals. During week 5 of #businessdetox, our focus is on the “muscles” of a business.  In order for muscles to work properly, we have to train and strengthen them, as well as make sure we are not stressing them with too much weight… The same goes for our employees.

In our #BusinessDetox analogy, we see our employees as our muscles.  Employees add value to our businesses if we invest the time to train and grow them. Employees give back to the business after they are motivated to achieve great heights. Motivating employees goes beyond offering monetary bonuses. MONEY IS NOT THE ONLY MOTIVATOR! Employees are highly motivated when they are EMPOWERED.
