Nowadays, one of the most essential objectives for employees is to help them connect with the company’s vision and values. When people are engaged at work, they feel personally committed to the organizations goals, missions and values. It is very important for the company to live up to their promises because no matter how impressive or persuasive the message is, if it does not resonate with the employees day-to-day experiences, they will not connect with it. A clear vision acts as a unifying force and a guide for employee’s decision making. It can truly motivate and inspire an individual to understand and align with the core values and vision of the organization.
An interested client came up to us with a need – and that is to steer their organization to even greater heights by revealing and emphasizing their company’s new mission, vision, and values.
Jambar Team Building, a leader in training, team building, and innovative programs crafted a hands-on, team-based experience to meet the client’s needs. To achieve this, our team took a classic Art Jamming experience and enhanced it further with instructional tweaks; such that all team members become more engaged. Art Jamming is a hands-on activity which would help teams visualize their vision and connect with people together. We pre-created a picture for them and each team got a piece of that picture. The keywords of the values were pre-written onto the picture we created and then for each slice they had the opportunity to customize to what they believe their values represented for them. We created specific color palettes for each group to create a very diverse and vibrant picture.
The participants were awed when they combined all the pictures together to create a beautiful abstract piece that read the vision, mission and values; loud and clear. It showed teamwork and engagement and also proved that individual work has an impact on the whole team. It was a great experience for people to self-reflect and think about what life fulfilled meant for them. From pictures of family to vacations in Paris, they drew in different perspectives of what life fulfilled looks for them. Our expert facilitator increased the value of the experience through facilitator touchpoints where short, powerful insights were shared to boost the effect of the vision, mission, and values understanding.
Jambar Team Building incorporates some fundamental principals in all our events, talking about people having a deeper connection with each other alongside having fun as well as giving them practical tools that they can use in their life to communicate better. The clients were indeed content and pleasantly surprised by the final outcome of the picture. This piece de resistance represented the teamwork and how believing in shared values and vision can create something extraordinary.
