If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen last Friday where I posted I was working on a “creative presentation” for work.
Each year, our company takes a Gallup poll which attempts to measure our engagement at work with 12 questions. We have an offsite each year where 12 small groups present one of each of the 12 questions to explain it and make sure everyone understands what the poll is asking.
This year, the groups were tasked with bringing some creativity to the presentation. No PowerPoints allowed.
My group’s question was “Is there someone at work who encourages your development?”
We concentrated on the effects of positive and negative chatter in the workplace. So, inspired by how Emma and Lexi film skits all the time with their Barbies, we wrote a skit and performed it using the girls’ Happy Family figurines.
We had a really, really fun time putting it together.
The bloopers after the credits are my favorite. And you have to know that the bobblehead that makes an appearance at the end is an actual bobblehead of our manager that is passed out for awards yearly. It was icing on the cake. Also, the Town Hall is a big meeting we have twice a year for updates and recognitions (but no cell signal in the room).
What I really wish I had video of is when I played the video for Emma and Lexi and they giggled seeing us perform with their toys.
And yes, Tucker is the one responsible for Greg’s gnawed off hand and foot.
On a serious note, I couldn’t help but walk away thinking about how applicable this is to our families. Your spouse and children will be more engaged when you are feeding them with encouragement and take an interest in their development. Stop the negative chatter and be that positive influence!
Happy Friday, ya’ll!
