It’s that time of year again when perfume and album adverts start to appear on the TV, social media starts to advertise increasingly lavish advent calendars for grown-ups (within increasingly huge price tags) and a few organised people get dates in the diary for your work night out. That’s right, its nearly CHRISTMAS!
There are under 100 days to go before Christmas. If you are thinking about arranging a Christmas team meeting or event, how about something a little bit different? If you are looking for a fun, but useful activity for your team, try one of our team building sessions.
Each team member completes the Persona Personality questionnaire in advance of the meeting. After a brief introduction to the subject of personality, our facilitator will lead the team in a few fun exercises to determine where on the Persona Wheel each team member sits, and to learn how an understanding of personality can benefit the team.
Teams will get to know each other better, to understand why team members react in the way they do, what causes frictions and how to avoid this, and how best to approach colleagues. Many team issues spring from ineffective communication and our team session helps to minimise these.
Organise your team session today; either order on our website by choosing from the Team Building Persona Package or the Persona Team Meeting Session, or contact us on email@example.com to organise a bespoke session.
Colourful Christmas Personalities
In personality terms, and just for fun, here are a few festive personality traits:
Reds: They will head to the shops knowing what they are going to buy for each person. They will visit each shop on their list in turn buying gifts. If the thing they want is not available, they will make a considered substitution. Christmas shopping will be done and dusted in one or two efficient trips to the shops.
Yellows: Christmas shopping is about having fun! They will head out with friends to browse the shops, stop for a festive drink and get distracted looking at their favourite store. They will see the perfect present for someone, buy it on impluse buy it on impulse, then their attention will be diverted to something else that catches their eye. Yellows may many enjoyable trips to the shops and finish their shopping at 5pm on Christmas Eve.
Greens: A lot of consideration goes into sourcing the right gift for the right person. Gifts may well be personalised, possibly hand-made or crafted, and thoughtfully sourced. The Green’s aim is to give the perfect present to make recipient the smile.
Blues: They have made a list, checked it twice, done the research and has everything wrapped well in advance. Most shopping may well be done online to avoid crowds and get the best deal for exactly the right present. The last posting dates (which also seem to get earlier and earlier each year) are met, with gifts sent off to relatives in far flung places in plenty of time.
Channel your inner Blue and organise your Christmas team meeting now. But Yellows, if you leave it until December, we will do our best to fit you in!
