The future of 2021 starts with your team- are you brave enough to make this your year?
Pivot is a word that we have all heard time and time again over the last year. “It’s time to pivot your business”, “Make the most of new opportunities”. But it’s a word that has taken on a new meaning in the year of 2020. For many, it has come to mean survival. If your business is still standing in 2021, firstly we want to say, congratulations! It has been a tough year and the fact that you have gotten through it, is an amazing accomplishment! But we are sure that this achievement hasn’t come without it’s sacrifices. Over the last few months, we have spoken to many business owners, event managers about these sacrifices and what it has meant for their business. One of the greatest challenges that we have all shared in the corporate industry, involved teams.
Some, were faced with the tough decision of laying off staff. Some, were conscious of the fact that they wanted to keep key members of the team but were now unable to do so in a fulltime capacity. Others were presented with the new challenges that came packaged with a virtual work environment. As a result of the unprecedented times we experienced and are still experiencing to this day, there was a shift in focus. Words such as “corporate strategy” and “a united team” became words of the past and they were replaced with a greater priority focused on mere survival. There is nothing to be ashamed of, this was the reality of the situation. Without survival, there was no business and without a business there was no team. But as skies begin to look brighter, we are now looking back to learn forward, and to move forward in 2021 we believe the focus should now be shifted back to its rightful place, THE TEAM.
Mentoring today’s minds for the future of your business is crucial. Inspiring, motivating and building a team culture is now at the center of corporate strategies for 2021. So, where do we even begin? At Metropolis Events, we believe it is important to get the team back together and align the future vision of your company. That’s why we have been working behind the scenes to develop breakout sessions and team building experiences like you have never seen before!
How do you re-engage the team? Motivation is key! Leaning on industry experts and external influencers is a great way to get the team up and about again! And let’s face it, your team are more likely going to listen to a motivational speaker than you anyway.
We work closely with a range of motivational speakers at Metropolis Events. All of which have reputable backgrounds and are known to offer fun and exciting activities that will get anyone on their feet and open to the day ahead.
