Global Distributor Meetup:
30 participants in a two day meeting
A global team of sales managers met up for two days to advance the company’s business goals.
The purpose was also to create alignment and team spirit and share knowledge across teams.
Since the participants are from different parts of the world, the cultural differences are significant – and not everyone is used to speak their mind. A conversation starter and enabler was needed…
The solution was five different Stickity activities, developed by PLUS Agencu.
The five Stickity activities each lasted between 20-50 minutes, and were mixed into the program between the presentations.
Stickity is always designed for the groups to facilitate themselves: Clear and simple tasks -> Structured process –> Tangible results.
When everyone is responsible for the process (and the materials support the process), the ownership of the end result increases significantly.
The Stickity activities gave us a precise and energizing start. The participants thrived in the precise framework around each task. The new and very different approach to delivering results demonstrated that when we say new approach, we mean it.
The new and very different approach to delivering results demonstrated that when we say new approach, we mean it. Time flew by while we were working in high concentration, listening, understanding and contributing.The high level of involvement meant, that everyone had room to shine with their knowledge, needs and ideas.
All inputs, thoughts and ideas from the team have been used in our follow-up. This demonstrates to the participants, that each and everyone’s contribution was important.
Next year, we will repeat some of the activities and look forward to adding a couple of new ones.
In the global sales meeting, the Stickity activities were physical: Printed boards, cards and markers. The participants were divided into smaller groups and worked both around a table, on the floor and by the wall.
Stickity also exists for online meetings. Use the meeting platform of your choice and send the participants into breakouts with a digital Stickity collaboration board.
Full participant involvement, a clear task within a limited time frame, and a concrete output from each group.
