Start the year off in a positive direction with a team meeting that serves dual purposes: to share a plan for 2015 and to have some fun.
Bring your team together to talk about your goals for the upcoming year. Share your top priorities and discuss exciting new initiatives.
Finally, revisit your team mission statement. Spend 20 to 30 minutes talking about the big-picture plan for the year.
Then spend some time socializing on a more personal level. Share stories from the holidays, talk about sports, compare resolutions and so on.
Provide plenty of snacks and drinks as a treat for employees. The meeting will reconnect and refocus everyone after the busy holiday season and end-of-the-year push.
