Unicorns and Ukuleles: A Day with Herky Cutler

Thursday, May 02, 2013

Unicorn: a mythical creature resembling a horse, with a single horn in the center of its forehead: often symbolic of chastity or purity.

Ukulele: a small, guitarlike musical instrument associated chiefly with Hawaiian music.

What do the two of these have in common? No, it isn't the greatest carnival act of all time (although we would definitely pay to see that). Instead, they were the themes of a recent team-building event that all of us here at Champions participated in.

Facilitated by Herky Cutler, local change agent/workplace specialist/speaker extraordinaire, the team at Champions took a day to breathe, assess ourselves personally and professionally, and get to know one another just a little bit better. And while there weren't any real unicorns in attendance, our entire team used the day to reflect on some of the mythological heights we are aspiring to as career developers.

Using his creative and innovative style, Herky guided us through a series of activities designed to help us evaluate who we are, how we are feeling, and how we can provide the best support for our clients and one another.

"Days like this are often overlooked or brushed aside," says Rod Ruff, our Marketing and Communications Coordinator, "but it was truly great to be able to take the time to look inward for once and also get to see my co-workers do the same."

The Champions team would like to thank Herky for facilitating this amazing day, and helping our team become just a little bit more in tune with each other, just like that old ukulele.

Our Executive Director, Lisa Moon, wanted to thank Herky in a video testimonial after the day's activities and you can watch the video below.

If your organization could use a new direction, revitalization, or better client and staff relations, we highly recommend getting in touch with Herky at www.herkycutler.com.
