On January 4th our teams will be asking us openly or indirectly, “What is our game plan for 2021?” Our job now is to create and empower a unique culture based 2021 game plan, with an outstanding roll out strategy for early January. Staying on the light side of what is commonly a stressful process, we suggest these three proven steps. Let’s have a conversation.
What: Events around the upcoming Holidays; Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year.
Why: To have some fun during Corona Virus times while showing sincere appreciation, and supporting every team member in reviewing and planning for a successful Holiday Season continuing into 2021..
Why this is Important: Without team buy in, we are dead in the water, plus everyone needs a pat on the back and some positive, “we can do it talk”.
Thanks-for-Giving session: A Zoom or live session facilitated by John M. Ruh and Associates to show sincere appreciation with some fun games and exercises to get everyone on board. This will include an announcement of your Annual Company Review (online by 3rd party) for all to participate in, thus giving everyone a voice.
Fun, weekly holiday quiz with prizes that support your culture and the values that are important to you. Will also have something live or Zoom session again to announce feedback from your online survey*, along with thoughts for next year.
New Year/ New Start Blast-off: As leaders, we need to give our state of the union/blast off session in early January, ideally in a fun and powerful way. Given the Covid environment, we’ll do so with a positive “we can and will with Context/Attitude” to give everyone direction and optimistic expectations for the upcoming year.
- Discussion on how this might fit nicely into your culture.
- A special holiday 30 day introductory offer
- Your free introduction of how to define your culture right.
* It is highly recommended that you use a neutral, outside 3rd party to perform the survey to ensure employee confidence with their anonymity.
