About 30 of FIRM’s staff spent the day together Thursday, Nov 29 at the annual staff retreat. This year’s retreat was held at Chukchansi Park, and FIRM thanks the Fresno Grizzlies for hosting them. Tree of Life Café catered three delicious meals, and we thank their staff.
In addition to team-building and training work, the majority of the retreat focused on activities adapted from Simon Sinek’s book, Start with Why. The “why” of an organization defines what they do and how they do it, in a way that inspires colleagues and clients.
Four hours of “why” related discovery activities led to a staff “why statement” for FIRM that is still under development: “The why of FIRM is to advocate for those we serve so that they can access resources for self betterment regardless of background.” This statement will continue to be molded and refined, and become a major part of FIRMS work in 2019.
