 Team Goal Setting

It’s time to consider what the training team hopes to accomplish in 2023. Last year we met over three different sessions to plan out this year. Training Team Goals for 2022 reflect that plan.

However, we didn’t achieve all of those goals. Should we continue them for next year?

Courtney met with Angela, who has offered to hold a team vision-setting meeting, and from that, we can launch into the following year’s goals. Courtney will work with Angela to plan that first part of the meeting, along with a survey for the best times we can meet via Zoom to do this.

Update on Coffee hour –

  • December 23 and 30, no coffee hour on (EMEA/AMER timezone)
  • Eastern APAC Coffee Hour Fridays at 04:00 UTC from Dec 2nd.
