September 19th ,20th , and 21st six members of the Arizona Foundation Solutions Team traveled to Seymour, Connecticut to learn from the brightest and best in our industry. We came away inspired, educated, motivated and ready to become the better version of ourselves that a team needs to grow.Opening speaker was Robyn Benicasa, world champion adventure racer…. Talk about learning what Adversity Management and Teamwork are all about… WOW! "It's not the setback that defines you but your comeback…" her inspiring stories will stay with us for a long time.
Each AZFS Team Member attended classes meant to help improve ourselves in the specific areas of our job functions, Marketing, Customer Service, Sales Consulting, Production, HR, Accounting… even classes specifically designed to help us business owners and managers improve who we are to run our businesses better! Literally, something for everyone.
-What was working great
All were ripe for recycling to all of us. The struggles he saw business having and how we can learn from those were also big talking points. This coupled with seeing and interacting with all the business managers from around North America… each of us learning and sharing from our counterparts in other companies. This provides for a fertile ground for renewal and inspiration!
It's one of the many reasons why we have grown from 30 employees 3 years ago to almost 90 today. Our teams can learn and associate with the best of the best.. it rubs off.
