- A Blueprint for Your Next Management Team Offsite
Sarah discusses the benefits of a management team offsite, which can help leaders focus on the right priorities, strengthen relationships and ensure that the company is not heading off the rails. • She provides advice on how to plan a management team offsite, including setting a cadence, setting an agenda, leaving time for conversation, sharing a pre-read and building trust. • She recommends that management teams do not let routine agendas dictate their focus, but rather be agile and adapt to the most important priorities of the organization right now. • Try an exercise to build trust called Personal Histories, in which each person answers three questions about themselves.
