EMESA: Looking back & looking forward

Type of work: Learning designer, producer, workshop facilitation, strategy

Challenge: Creating unity within the sales and marketing department of VakantieVeilingen, part of EMESA. The team manager has asked me to create an end of year session in which the team is able to look back to the challenges and opportunities they have endured and look forward to what might come their way.

Ambition: In the past year this team has worked hard on solidifying structures in a fast-growing business and are now looking for tools to strengthen their group development and processes. This team wants to be challenged with new ways of working and is a young, always changing group of people.

Outcome: During the time span of 5 hours, I’ve created a session in which this team was able to frame several key patterns within their groups’ development. They’ve mapped out their highs and lows from the past year and prioritized some of their highest priorities for the coming year.

A year later I often talk to their manager and they’re still using the tools and key areas that were named in the session. Proud moment!
