At the beginning of the year, our Servant Leaders had to pack their bags and start planning for 2020. Place to be this time was Bangkok ¬- because just like last year's SAS Team, the Servant Leader Team also achieved their annual goal.
But not relaxing hours at the pool and sunbathing on the roof terrace were on the agenda here - the 2019 business year was looked at in detail and the annual goals for 2020 were set. Strategic decisions had to be considered and worked out. In addition to core values, the main components were prioritization, budget planning and the groundwork for the new branding strategy. The modern, light and airy shared office Spaces Phahon 19 offered concentrated work.
Since the entire W4 is working according to Scrum in all teams, the team workflows have to be readjusted and reorganized regularly. The teams as such should be able to work independently as a small unit and are therefore composed according to the skills and talents of the employees. The W4 quarterly mottos, which are planned and designed by the Servant Leaders, are also included. The meeting was also used to set up workflows for the Q1 motto.
When this was done and the first quarter of 2020 was planned, our Servant Leaders were able to see a little bit of Bangkok (besides all the delicious Thai delicacies).
But our Servant Leaders are secretly gourmets and have put the variety and diversity of Thai food high on the to do list.
Strengthened by this, a visit to the highest building in Bangkok - the King Power Maha Nakhon - was scheduled. The 320-metre, 79-storey building was designed by the German architect Ole Scheeren, and is mainly home to retail outlets, apartments and restaurants. The untypical exterior façade impresses with a pixeled helix that seems to be chiselled into the surface, and with its panoramic terrace with glass floor it offered a great view of the city - definitely worth a photo.
Just like the food, Buddhist temples and night markets are also part of Bangkok's cityscape. A visit to Wat Pho - a royal, Buddhist temple of first class - was therefore not to be missed. The main attraction today is the famous 46 meter long and 15 meter high gilded reclining Buddha statue.
In the temple complex with countless other sitting and standing Buddha statues and magnificent chedis, the traditional massage school is also positioned. The only written remains of Thai massage are engraved on palm leaves in one of the temples in 60 stone tablets.
If your feet are heavy, but the desire to discover has not yet been satisfied, you can simply continue sightseeing in Bangkok by boat through the many canals and rivers.
This annual meeting definitely made an impression and brought back many fond memories.
