A team kick off should serve a few purposes.

A Message From Our Founder
My message this month is short.
As the year is fast heading towards its end I would like to ask you to start to reflect back on your year and what you have learned.
What knowledge have you accumulated? More important still, what did you do with that knowledge?
We often hear of new things, even study courses, go to seminars, learn profound and potentially life changing things but never apply them to our lives and workplaces.
What did you learn this year that you have applied? (pat yourself on the back for taking action) What difference has that made? Please share your lessons with us, we would love to hear what has worked for you.
What did you learn that you wanted to apply but haven’t yet? Now go away and start doing something with those learnings.
The year is not done yet, and the great thing about a year is, there is always another one!
Enjoy the rest of your November
To your success!
Louise and the Project Community Team
