On Thursday, July 12, the JES Holdings Marketing Team had a retreat to remember as team members from the Atlanta, Georgia, Columbia and St. Louis, Missouri offices all met up to bond and discuss ways to improve as a team.
The first part of the retreat was a seminar led by Martha Forlines, a nationally-known coach, consultant, author and speaker who is dedicated to developing, empowering and motivating leaders and their teams. With a keen understanding of people and where they best fit into a team or organization, Martha can hone in on precisely what needs to happen to optimize success. Our Marketing Team benefited greatly from the seminar, and they now have a more firm understanding of how to work with each other!
After the seminar, the Marketing Team left the office for some fun around St. Louis. The team climbed aboard the STL BarCycle, and went on to explore the Soulard neighborhood. Finally, the night concluded with dinner and drinks at local restaurants.
“The retreat was very eye opening! I enjoyed learning about what motivates my team members and I think we can use what we learned to work even better together. Also, it was definitely worthwhile getting a chance to have some fun and relax with the rest of the Marketing Department,” said Nicole Bunte, JES Holdings Strategic Communications Coordinator.
After the retreat, the Marketing Team was eager to get back to the office and put their new insight and skills to the test!
