Every year, Advent comes together for a day of inspiration, education, and growth during our annual meeting, Team Advent Day! It’s a time for our team to look back in reflection and forward in anticipation.

Last year, a team member whose family was personally impacted by devastating loss in the wildfire disaster in Lahaina, Hawaii, introduced us to the amazing spirit and resilience of the Lahainaluna High School football team. Through their story, as well as the resilience of our superhero team at Advent, our theme for this year became: “Life is a Game, Stay in it to Win it!”

The key takeaways from this event were:

Embrace What You Love: We dove into identifying and focusing on the aspects of our jobs that bring us the most joy and fulfillment. Based on the presentation, “Designing Work People Love” by speaker and executive coach, Kelly Johnson of the Marcus Buckingham Company, we learned that honing in on our passions and strengths over fixating on our weaknesses is the best way to excel in our roles and find satisfaction in our work.  

Expand Your Capabilities: As an authorized reseller of Outmatch Assessments through Harver, our team received additional training from Clint Schult of Maximum Potential on the extended capabilities of this robust platform. We’re excited to provide our clients with expanded capabilities for optimizing their hiring process, including removing hiring bias. This tool helps organizations engage, hire, and grow the right talent faster!

Get Personal: We learned more about the power of personalization and the key to building relationships according to Sam McKenna, Founder & CEO of #samsales Consulting. Especially important in a people-focused, service delivery organization like Advent, the team is excited to put into practice some of the insights from this engaging video series recommended by Kelli Schutrop, CEO & Founder of Thoughtful Resound.

Change Your Mindset: In an engaging session, Founder & CEO Tom Erb of Tallann Consulting equipped us with the tools and mindset needed to overcome adversity in today’s ever-changing market. By embracing agility, innovation, and resilience, we’re prepared to meet our exciting company growth goals for the year and tackle any challenges that come our way.
