Work’s starting to go into Christmas mode, the party invites are flooding in, and you’re having thoughts of next year. People are feeling buoyed, they’re planning social events, and they’re thinking of their holidays.
What better time of year for planning?!
When your people are riding high on the festive season, why not take advantage of that high and the usual lull in activity and plan a strategy getaway. December or January? Well probably January is best; people have a feeling of renewal, so that’s probably a good time to talk about your business renewal as well.
Our recommendation would be to make an event of it. Why not get away from the office for a couple of days to somewhere nice, get your people focused on moving business forward, and at the same time it gives people the opportunity to connect with each other in a more social setting.
So, how do you approach this? Well start your planning right now; don’t leave it any longer or it will likely fall between the cracks of too much food and drink in the coming weeks!
