Staff Margarita Meetings?
I’ve made it a mission to host FUN staff meetings that are equipped with sharing, collaborating and of course delicious food. This past month our team met on our office patio for happy hour equipped with fresh blended Strawberry Margaritas and appetizers. We later enjoyed sharing the exotic flavours of Aidas Mediterranean Grill.
Food is universal. It is not just about nourishment, its what connects us. While I don’t think you need alcohol at a meeting to have fun (although a bottle of tequila at our practice certainly speaks to our mission of balanced living); I would however say team cohesion, open sharing and great ideas often arise while connecting around food.
If your office meetings are boring I challenge you to suggest a theme, a potluck or recipe contest (such as a smoothie, cocktail, burger, chill or soup competition) to add some life! When your team is having fun it always leads to better productivity, common vision and overall success.
