In a year end activity you may want to:
- Provide acknowledgement for what everyone has done
- Provide a summary of the different activities/milestones people have achieved
- Explore and set goals for the upcoming year
- Create your vision for the upcoming year
- Identify a theme for the upcoming year
- Schedule in key dates (the old adage being what doesn’t get scheduled doesn’t get done). As a team talk about the different activities you want to participate in in the new year. When will they happen?
- Have fun!
Key questions you will want to explore during your time together include:
- What’s been your biggest success this year? (Get each person to reflect individually)
- What’s been our biggest success?
- What have you learned about yourself?
- What’s important for you to do more of next year?\What’s important fo you to do less of next year?
- What doe you need to stop doing?
- Who do we need to build better relationships with?
- What activities need to be refined?
- How do we keep things on our radar screen?
- What can we do to augment or maximize our successes?
- What can we do to mitigate the downfalls we experienced this year?
A couple of other tips:
It might be great to take it out of the office, provide a secret gift exchange amongst team members or even make it a regular activity for each quarter
What are the additional questions you want to ask and consider in your work together?
