  • Team workshops
    • Working across barriers – the team process mapped their departments, and they also created a jigsaw which demonstrated how they needed to all work with each other to create one picture.
    • How to be proactive? – used the 5 a day principle and employees kept logs of when they had been proactive.
    • What does your business look like? – we visited other agents and used a mystery shopper to give the company feedback.  This workshop used a lot of the techniques from the very successful BBC programme “Mary Queen of Shops”
    • How to live and work by your values? – the team described what would be happening at the office and in the afternoon took part in a volunteering project, creating planters for schools.
    • What motivates each team member? – Using the Strength Deployment Inventory profiling tool.
    • Park thinking – most recently we have conducted a workshop comparing the impact on the business to visitors.  We have used a visit to a theme park as a comparator.
