Team 9G Shows Some Appreciation
It is vital for a team to be able to identify each other’s strengths and weaknesses. At the same time, it is also important for individuals to know how their teammates perceive them. Furthermore, it is also of utmost importance that we, as individuals, both give and receive affirmations from our peers.
This is why in one of our Friday Culture Talks, we conducted an activity where each one was given the chance to both give and receive nuggets of appreciation and affirmation to and from our teammates.
In the activity, we were asked to write positive personality traits, which we must keep to ourselves, on three separate pieces of paper. Then, each person was to pick a random card from anyone in the circle, read out loud what’s written on the card, and then pick a person who best represents the word on the card.
Soon, it became obvious just how much the members of our team valued and respected each other. There was nothing but love all around, and people were both thankful and flattered to be recognized and appreciated the way they were.
All in all, this activity was a great venue for Team 9G to deepen the camaraderie and for each of us get to know ourselves through the eyes of our colleagues.
How about you? Have you showed appreciation for your favorite co-worker? Go ahead, do it and make their day!
