Put up your out-of-office and watch real trust take root by adventuring, learning, thinking, and looking ahead together.

My 6 tips for any leader planning an event:

  1. Have a goal.
    Identify your hopes and vision for the event and treat these as an intention. Stay committed and focused.

  2. Unplug.
    Your presence is the most valuable thing you can give to your team. Emails can wait (I promise).

  3. Listen.
    Look for new perspectives and actively encourage engagement, especially from team members you may not usually hear from. Ask more questions than you answer.

  4. Build in time away from the meeting. 
    Encourage breaks and prioritize giving individuals the time and freedom to step away, allowing for a natural flow of time and even the opportunity to reconnect with the outdoors. Corporate events, though focused on productivity, can only truly foster creativity when participants are afforded the space to recharge.

  5. Don’t try to solve everything.
    Stay focused, and make gathering together a persistent part of your culture. Have a plan for keeping the conversation going and accountability when you head back to the office.

  6. Trust someone else with the details.
    Your team needs you to be present, engaged, and accessible. Gatherings and retreats are for you, too!
