Wayne Ball, Managing Director
I would like to say thank you to Mission To Motivate who have recently undertaken a team day for us here at Icon Exhibitions & Display Ltd.
I was looking to hold a team event for our key players and as we don’t get much quality time together it needed to combine team bonding with an element of fun and tangible business take-aways to facilitate our business growth plans.
I chose to work with Tracey as she took the time to build a tailored event especially for us.
A brief out line of the process consisted of completing individual Leadership profiles (Personal Profile Analysis), which gave us an insight into our preferred behaviours and make-up as a team.
We then received initial 1:1 personal feedback with Tracey, which were then able to explore collectively on the team day. There were some interesting revelations, which we shared, creating greater understanding of each other and breaking down work barriers that had formed over the years.
The main day began with a fun activity building ‘balloon sofas’ high lighting our method of working and the roles we naturally assume. After the main profile analysis, we explored team business development opportunities in an exercise – what we can stop, do more of and start doing as team, helping to form actions to support our business growth plans.
Members of the team and I thoroughly enjoyed the day developing as a team whilst having fun. The experience made us take a fresh look at others and ourselves, in addition to focusing on changes that we can make for the better in terms of communication and understanding. We took a great deal from the whole experience and the profiles give us direction for future personal and team development areas.
It has set us on a very positive course for 2018 with real actions to continually develop.
I would not hesitate to recommend Tracey and her team to offer a personal, tailored approach that challenged our thinking. It’s up to us now, to own this and re-visit it for the good of all and future business growth.
