Over a year ago, I asked my team to brainstorm some ideas on what each and every person on the team could do to be inspiring to the people around them on a daily basis. It is important to me that my teams work to rise above the day-to-day grind and that we be the model for the other teams in the company. As a leader, a lot of that effort does rest on my shoulders, but I cannot do it alone. Everyone on the team needs to know that they are a part of it and what they can do. In about 20 minutes, the team came up with many ideas which centred around a handful of key concepts, which I compiled in a classic PowerPoint presentation to kick off the past year.
A little over two weeks ago, I broke up with my job to pursue a new opportunity. As a personal farewell gift, I wanted to update the presentation and send it out to the team. Unfortunately, I was busy finishing their annual evaluations and addressing some issues right up to the last minute. (Seriously, I left at 5:45pm on my last day of work.) So, over the past few days, I decided to learn Prezi and create what I hope will be a presentation they will remember… in a good way. I admit, I don’t have the same touch as the Graphic Designers on my team, but I hope they enjoy the spirit of the message.
