9/16 is the 3rd Thursday. Time to RECESSitate

In my blog post of June 17th I tossed out the following challenge to you:

How about setting aside the 3rd Thursday of every month to take a 30 – 60 minute Recess with your team, group, department or company? Take it as an opportunity to share successes, build stronger relationships, get everyone involved in the new product development process. And if you need ideas on activities that are not only fun, but have been proven to impact the bottom line (which is what the boss wants to hear), come back here regularly. I’ll be providing you with an activity of the month to do just that.

 

Well Thursday is that day. This Thursday the 16th, is the 3rd Thursday of September. Summer is over. And why not do what a lot of your kids are doing…………take a Recess. A break from the norm. A temporary cessation of the customary activities of an engagement. Take some time that day and celebrate. Here’s a simple idea……..

September RECESSitation: Gather your team together and ask each of them to complete this sentence in 10 words or less:

  • The thing I love most about my job is ________.
  • I could do my job better if ______.

I bet you’ll find more similarities than differences. I’ll bet you’ll find people offer you low or no cost ideas to the second question. The point here is to focus on what makes your place a great place to work and how each and every person can be better. Isn’t that what you want?

Have fun! Have a great Recess. Let me know how it goes. I’ll be spending Recess that day with the Alabama Parks & Recreation Association; giving them a well deserved RECESSitation from the busy season they just have come through.
