We had planned on all of Omnikron’s office staff (sales, recruiting and admin) to go on a weekend retreat to Lake Tahoe. The trip was planned in recognition of some significant goals being achieved by the team. Unfortunately three of our team members – Corina, Vartan, and Melanie could not make it. Their absence was felt by us all through out the trip. We had a great time, we enjoyed the beautiful home that Brice had found for us, superb weather, out of the world view of the lake, great food, great team work preparing couple of meals, and each others company. We also did a little bit of work on revisiting and re-crafting our mission and purpose in Omnikron. This turned out to be a very very worthwhile exercise for all of us step back from our day to day work at Omnikron and reflect on who we are, what keeps us in Omnikron and where we would like to be in the future. After we came back from the trip we are continuing this deliberation and we are expecting the result of this deliberation will provide us significant guidance as we move forward. During this trip we agreed that it will be very worthwhile for the purpose posterity to document this trip to remind us of this weekend and the participants and environment in which this mission and purpose deliberation had started. To this effort we all have contributed our individual perspectives of the trip. In addiotion, Sondra was given the assignment of crafting the team journal to capture our collective experience. So here is the BLOG describing our Lake Tahoe Retreat experience.
