Talk about that much awaited vacation
Its’ a third of the quarter and your office hasnt’ organized that out-of-town event yet? Do not prolong the agony – refill that already half-empty cup of energy and bring back the sparkle for a much awaited vacation. Never mind the bulk of emails that pop during your off time though because, for sure, as soon as you get back to business, your’e already replenished, and young, and ready to strut that powerful work guise once again. Or are you?
Most of the times, maintaining a positive, first-day attitude after a period of relaxation can be very difficult. Its’ the memory of the games and camaraderie that opposes the truth that the same workload, the same people, and the same office will hit you back in the face again as soon as the elevator door cracks open for you. Take a cut on that inter-organizational outing a year ago. You had so much to enjoy as if the days wouldnt’ end. But as soon as the reality sank back in, its’ the feeling that you dont’ want to go to business anymore that causes you to just, “Can I take a sick leave?” Because whatever happened to the take-back-Sunday-be-back-Monday technique did not fall through the plan… and as soon as it was missed, the remaining energy thats’ supposed to have been reserved on a Sunday was used on a Monday, and so everyone wasnt’ ready – you werent’ ready. Now go ahead tell your boss that theres’ always a better way.
What can you do to make going back to business rather exciting?
A way to keep it cool is a constant struggle to managers and meeting organizers alike. First day comeback work meeting just cant’ seem to catch a burn-up as quickly as the other times prior to your vacation or team outing. To make it exciting is the new technique. The idea that something still enjoyable awaits everyone in the office makes it rather “not that bad” to get back to business and face reality once again.
Setup a retrospective about the outing on the first day, with snacks, of course!
Rather than making everyone face the bulk of email yet, organize everyone around the meeting hall to conduct a retrospective about the outing. You can talk about what went well, or what everyone has learned about the outing, what aspects of the outing you think can be improved and other funny moments that you can reminisce, or want to forget?
Give the remainder of the rewards and prices (first thing, Monday!)
Its’ like no, wer’e not done yet ladies and gents! Normally, in outing activities, prices and rewards are given at the end of the event. You can plan internally to give the remainder of the rewards first thing as soon as you get back to business. This will feel like a get-up-and-go for your employees to regain control of their work. Youl’l see that these rewards will light up their faces and slowly put a hand on their very first tasks while probably chitchatting about those funny moments on the side.
