A Lunch and Learn is just as it sounds, a lunch where you learn. Employees can either bring their own lunch or take part in a catered meal. Because such a system understands the importance and value of company time, the event is structured to fit within a 30 to 60 minute time frame, perfect for everybody.
Its timeframe within the lunch period does not detract at all from company time, so employees do not have to worry about needing to stay late to make up lost hours. This serves as a clear, non-verbal indication that you value both their time and their potential. In addition, the lunch setting is naturally relaxed, allowing the teaching session to be much more fun than normal training programs. A less rigid atmosphere similarly makes it a perfectly fluid candidate for classes to be held as often as one would like, from every week to once a month.
Whether for the up and coming leaders of the company to those already in positions of power, leadership development is one section that can never be too well trained. From learning the ins and outs of business management to basic etiquette techniques, the better-rounded your managerial staff, the better your company will do.
Some teams naturally gel automatically while others merely work together to complete projects. No matter the team dynamic, it is always beneficial to allow them time to connect with one another and work together in stress-free situations. This serves to open up even more lines of communication while building new levels of trust.
Companies are built on goals, but do you have a firm grasp on what, exactly, defines such a word? What we assume to be goals can actually be detrimental in that they cannot actually be measured or even realistically achieved. Taking time to understand how to properly build and obtain a goal only serves to garner future success.
Clear communication is always important, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the office. Simple disputes and misunderstandings can all be circumvented by simply knowing how to talk to one another. Effective communication also covers the realm of expressing ideas to the team and clearly defining how such things can be transformed into a reality.
