Executive Director, Bonnie Kubowitz convened the entire GNC Staff for a team retreat facilitated by Diane Strachen of Positive Futures Inc.
Retreat goals included:
1) improved communication and leadership skills for staff
2) integration of programs and cross-training
3) diversifying funding and
4) co-creation for “one touch” client services/healthy homes.
The entire staff practiced listening skills, observed increased awareness of the variety of services performed by GNC and appreciation for the collective skills and capacity of the group.
Some interesting quotes from the sessions:
“Retreats don’t suck”, Zach sums up Day One.
“None of us is as smart as all of us”, Old Cowboy saying.
