The end of 2018 is fast approaching, the 2nd quarter of the financial year 2018/19 ends with it. It is proper practice for any organization to hold their semiannual review at this time of the year.
The Council of Governors Secretariat on 28th-30th November 2018 held their semi- annual retreat to review and determine the strides made and the tasks ahead if it is to fully implement its Annual Work plan for the year 2018/19. The team also had an opportunity to review their priority areas for the remaining half of the year. During the review, the secretariat also held its team building session and end of year party.
The Council of Governors holds a team building session every year to ensure that each time it works like a well-oiled machine. World over, the best organization and companies hold such session where staff can interact informally with each other and encourage collaboration and teamwork among colleagues. Fun activities that help people see each other in a different light allow them to connect in a different setting.
Led by the Chief Executive, directors, managers and staff had an opportunity to engage in activities promoting Communication and working better together, Collaboration and the fostering of innovation and creativity, Celebration, team spirit, fun, and motivation, Networking, socializing, and getting to know each other better.
One of the most powerful reasons for team building is to get results. Through a series of planned team bonding events that are fun and motivational, teams build skills like communication, planning, problem-solving and conflict resolution.
The Secretariat also proceeded to its reggae themed end of year party where staff and committees were awarded. The committee of the year award was scooped by the health committee and the same committee also scooping the team lead of the year – Mr. Meshack Ndolo and rising star of the year Ms. Sheila Yoto from the same committee. The employee of the year award went to Ms. Mary Ashira – CEO’s secretary. Other categories included; special service awards awarded by the organization to head of Security – Inspector Malila and Mr. Wanyonyi - Council of Governors mailman. Members of staff also had an opportunity of appreciating each other for the year that was. They did this by exchanging gifts that one would pick randomly.
At the end of the team building, teams were clear on what they would be focusing in the coming year, how each department must work together with the other to ensure the success of the organization, for there is great strength in unity and teamwork.
