Last week, members of our senior staff spent two and a half days in very close quarters while taking a management training refresher course “DE International Management – Goal Setting, Motivation, Feedback & Conflict Management” held by trainer Bjarne Brynk Jensen. A total of 15 senior staff members attended the workshop, 9 from our Atlanta team and 6 from our Houston team. Each of them learned about management techniques, how to best handle conflicts, how to assess learning styles and best work with them, and more. The seminar was very hands on, with a lot of team work and discussions of common work situations.
As a culmination of the seminar, the group spent Saturday morning hiking up Stone Mountain outside of Atlanta. While it was extremely hot (it has been averaging 95°F, 35°C here lately), the group had a great time and enjoyed a wonderful view of the city from the top of the mountain. It was great for our team here in Atlanta to get to know our Houston colleagues a bit better, and we certainly hope they come back for another hiking trip when it is a bit cooler!
