Once a year our team gets together, turns the phones and email off to reflect on the past and talk honestly about how we want the coming year to pan out. We address team and organisational goals but we also invest time on clarifying our personal goals.
This year we approached the personal part differently. The team was paired up with a colleague with the objective of discovering their Mantra for 2012. Once it was identified then their partner was entrusted with visually bringing the Mantra to life in a frame that will take pride of place on their desk throughout 2012. The artists amongst us found it easy but those of us for whom the written word is more where our art lies also got out the paintbrushes, glue and scissors with delightful results.
Consider doing this project with your team as the cultural and motivational benefits are brilliant. Enjoy this collection of some of our Mantra projects and I hope they inspire you as much as they have done us.
