When I joined the account last November, I inherited an entire team from another manager who moved to the Billing LOB. The team name was GRID, after the racing game. They were a merry mix of mostly non-tenured agents, with a splash of the very tenured. One thing was obvious – they didn’t have much ownership for the team as a whole. We’ve come a long way from that time, and we’ve seen a lot of members come and go. We’ve joked about changing our team name (specifically to Viva Piñata), but we never really got down to doing so.
Yesterday, we finally went out as a team to somewhere farther then Red andG2. We spent more than 24 hours eating, drinking, singing, swimming, and joking around, at Villa Natalia, Sta. Maria, Bulacan.
It probably wasn’t the best team building activity that any one of us has been to, but it was our team excursion. It would also keep them quiet for awhile, until they ask for another outing in two months’ time. Haha 🙂
The team’s being split in two; I’m keeping eleven and most of them are remnants from the original team I took over for 6 months ago. Of the ten that got transferred, majority joined the team in the last 2-3 months. I’d still keep tabs on them though, they won’t really be rid of me that easily.
I took pictures, of course. But I’m not ready to share them just yet. I’ll try to write up another post before hitting the sheets. 🙂
