Our fearless leader, Sue Yannaccone, was recently featured in a FastCompany.com article about keeping teams motivated and happy during the crazy holiday season. Her advice is applicable to companies large and small, so we wanted to share it with all of you as the season comes to a close, to keep in mind as you plan for 2017.

“At a time of year when team members are often thinking about the year ahead and what their New Year’s resolutions will be, set them up for success by helping them learn something new in a fun, stress-free way. If there is a skill specific to your business that’s essential for employees to master, turn it into a game or friendly competition rather than bringing them to a seminar. Or if there is something everyone in the office has been buzzing about—like the “escape room” challenges growing in popularity—take them to a totally out-of-the-box activity or class rather than a traditional holiday party to give them the chance to learn while stepping out of their comfort zone as a team.”
