they will forget what you have done,
but people will never forget
what you have made them feel.“

Hekatron Strengthens Team Spirit. With a Strategy Meeting.Nothing is as unchanging as change! Hekatron had defined a new strategic direction and wanted to communicate this to its managers. "Moving on to Pastures New – Nature as a Teacher" was the theme of our event. We sent 30 managers out into the wild to help them visualize aspects of the new strategy and come to terms with it emotionally.
To experience is to understand. The analogy between nature and company strategy would be communicated practically in the fullest sense of the word. At various stations, fascinating new aspects of change and teamwork were actively experienced. Every participant could find out for himself what a natural and necessary phenomenon change is.
Highpoint of the day was woodcutting. The participants worked together to fell a tree and to work with the rough wood. What they learned from the examples of forest, meadow and the natural world will stay with the group of managers. This event laid the foundations for bringing the new strategy successfully online.
