What a way to kick off the New Year!
When: January 2023
Where: Our Palo Alto office
Why: Meet, eat, greet, sing, cook…
It was four jam-packed days of meetings, mind melding and more, as ServiceRocket's leaders convened for their quarterly executive workshop, joined by management teams and individual contributors from across the company.
The many thoughtful discussions left Rocketeers inspired about the year ahead.
“This was one of the largest and most amazing sessions I’ve been in,” adds Kharisma Moraski, Vice President, Partner and Customer Solutions. “I also learned that, while I can’t sing, other Rocketeers can.”
Singing aside, everyone focused on a singular mission: how to move Rocketeers, customers and partners forward.
Break down silos. Think cross-functionally.
“The brainpower in the room was off-the-charts. It was so reaffirming to see all these amazing leaders thrive and easily collaborate during tough discussions,” notes Jeff Lipschultz, Senior Director, Talent Acquisition.
But all work and no play isn’t how Rocketeers roll, as evidenced below.
While daily meetings ensued, a roving camera crew interviewed Rocketeers. Keep an eye out for new videos in 2023 (“Coming Soon!”)
Amid the activity Rocketeers found time to meet with two inspiring speakers, including business owner and Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) member Greg Owens who engaged Rocketeers on being a better listener and mental health coach Graham Betchart.
A familiar face to many, Graham has helped Rocketeers maintain their #StableConfidence via online wellness sessions both before and during the Pandemic.
“Graham is always inspiring. He lives his passion,” says Tami Avelar, Executive Program Manager. “He encourages us to do the same.”
Yes, but what about the food?
Throughout the week Rocketeers gathered for meals both in and out of the office.
But the piece de resistance saw Rocketeers create a gourmet feast for one another, under the watchful eye of professional chefs.
The takeaway? The sky’s the limit!
Here’s to an uplifting start to 2023 and a great year ahead.
There's joy in gathering.
