3 Things Our Summer Summit Taught Us

culture Posted on Jun 22, 2015

During the first week of June the XenoPsi distributed team flew in from all over the world to spend a week with the NYC team in our main office. We came together for a week of hard work, knowledge sharing, embarrassing icebreakers, and even a few happy hours.

Here’s what we took away from our week together:

Never Stop Sharing Information
There are new trends and new tools shifting the way we work, how we reach consumers, and how we evaluate success every day. Throughout the week each of our teams took the time to present the latest trends in their industry. Consistently sharing that information across teams helps us all to do our best work.

Remember Your Core Values
Take a look at your agency’s core values. What truly defines you as an agency? What makes you unique? Where are you doing your best work? The XenoPsi team sat down to take a look at our values and evaluate how we’re putting them into practice. Knowing the goal you’re working towards and, more importantly, evaluating your progress along the way keeps your team motivated and united.

Celebrate Your Team
We work closely with team members all the time, but it’s rare that we have a chance to all be in the same room together. So we took some time out of our knowledge sharing to bond as a team. We ran around the Financial District taking unique photos for a scavenger hunt, competed to build Lego Mixels, and ended the week with a celebratory team dinner. These weeks are perfect chance to enjoy each other’s company outside of the office and celebrate all that we’ve accomplished.
