New year, fresh and fun start!
Entering into a new year always brings about a sense of renewal, and a recommitment to resolutions to be our best selves. At Hughes Marino, we constantly strive to bring out the best in each other and our team as a whole. A few years ago Senior Vice President (and resident life coach) John Jarvis set out on a mission to help our team practice being impeccable with our word. He wanted to create something fun, yet meaningful, where our entire team could achieve one goal a month together, and our inspiring mini goals program was born.
John’s idea has evolved in the past few years, and has come to be an amazing addition to our award-winning company culture. We discuss our mini goals regularly, and tag photos of our accomplishments on social media. My personal favorites from last year? ‘Create a piece of art’ and ‘pay for the person behind you.’ It has certainly been a treat to see all of the creative ways our team has accomplished our goals in 2016!
Our Invitation to You
As we enter into a bright new year, we want to liven things up a bit and spread the positive vibes to our extended family – you! We would love for you to join in on the fun, and what better time to be a part of something new than at the beginning of a brand new year?
This year’s goals were decided as a team at our Country Nights event in September. We came up with many fun ideas as a group. After a lot of conversation, whittling down, and even vetoing, we finally came up with 12 that we all are proud to call our 2017 Mini Goals. In no particular order (as they will be selected at random at the beginning of each month), we are excited to unveil our goals to accomplish together this year!
