Reconnection & Rediscovery

Read this story of Firm A, a major transportation company, and see how their experience with Cosmopolitan Plated transformed the team dynamics and invoked greater potential of the team's future development. 

The Crave: Earning for Trust and New Perspectives

The Context

In Firm A, the distrust between the manager level and senior level of the marketing and communications team members had been hindering effective communication and the professional growth of the group. 

  • They needed to find a way to reconnect and rediscover how they relate and communicate as a team with a higher understanding about how they could move towards the goals of the team and the mission of the organization, which would result in stronger, more cohesive performance.

The Request

  • The firm requested Jennifer to create a workshop that would allow the group to team up, get creative, and have an engaging opportunity for each individual to reveal their value to the whole team. They wanted this to take place in a space where everyone was on the same level, anticipating that the removal of hierarchy would foster an environment more conducive for communication and meaning conversations.

Cooking Process

  • When they first entered, people (as always) were unsure of what to expect. Some were standoffish and quiet. However, They had the excitement of knowing they were going to take part in something different from the day to day at the office. They were quite excited about cooking and having some great food but had a distrust as to why they leadership team was bringing them into this workshop.

  • As the event progressed, it was PHENOMENAL! They got creative in their presentations. Their presentations and cooking was creative, competitive (friendly) and they were encouraging each other. High fives were everywhere!
