As we continue to grow, the demand on our senior team to engage, motivate and develop our staff also increases. This year we have run two leadership development workshops – for our Technical Directors earlier in the year, and more recently for our Service Leaders who spent 2 days at Riverside Matakana. This was a great opportunity for them to develop a leadership toolbox and strengthen relationships with their peers.

A retreat like this wouldn’t be complete without a team-building element. The groups were first tasked with building boats – and then racing them. It was a great ending to the first day – everyone had loads of fun – just don’t ask anyone who won! A huge thank you to Penny Harrison from Communicate Consultants for facilitating another excellent workshop.
