Get to the Heart – 2 Hours
Company core values are brought to life with a fun and energizing heart-making exercise. Each individual gets a heart form to enhance and build upon as a symbol of the part they play in contributing to the company’s mission. This method of working directly with materials engages everyone.
Every new employee learns about the heart in orientation. Many carry a laminated care with this diagram on it. They use the Joie de Vivre heart to engage with each other about whether we’re “walking our talk.” The basic principle is simple: a unique corporate culture creates happy employees, which leads to greater customer loyalty that in turn drives a profitable and sustainable business.
Chip Conley, “Peak”
Participants explore and make aesthetic choices while working side by side with colleagues. In creating the heart, they experience integration of their ideas and feelings with a sculptural form. Results give individuals confidence by their contribution to the process. Transformation is experienced directly as one works with their hands to build success step by step resulting in an art piece invested with personal expression.
