Building a Collaborative Year AheadSubmitted by Stone House Investment Management, LLC on January 8th, 2018
We are ready to make 2018 the best year yet for our clients!
As our specialty is helping others plan their financial futures, we strive to offer our clients one-on-one support so they can navigate their financial plan with ease. Our client process truly is a collaboration that begins amongst our own team.
Recently, our Stone House team closed the office and traveled to Scranton for a team building offsite meeting. The all-day meeting was held at POSH @ The Scranton Club. We reserved the “Oak Bar” Room for the day. It was perfect for us, as they had a large, round table in the room that we were all able to comfortably sit around. We meet regularly as a team in our office, however, it was great to be out of our usual setting to get our creative juices following. Over the course of the day, we discussed many topics and came up with a number of new ideas to implement in 2018.
After a delicious lunch and a great day of discussion, we headed a few blocks over to the Electric City Escape Room. It was time to see what our team was made of. We booked the “Escape No. 109 Mine” room, it had a difficulty level of 9 out of 10. We were given a quick backstory to set the stage for the escape. As we all finished our 12-hour shift in the mine, there was an explosion at the entrance, so we had to find our way out using an old exit known as “Dead Rock Run”. With only about an hour of oxygen left, we were given the challenge and the room was locked behind us!
Once the door was closed, we all immediately sprung into action. We started searching for our first clues. The challenge was difficult, and there were many clues that had to be pieced together to figure out each step along the way. Everyone worked together, adding their own perspective. We slowly figured out enough clues to open the trap door and move into the second room. Once in the second room we thought we were home free, however, the clues were not a dead giveaway. With time no longer on our side, we had to really put our heads together to figure the way out. With a mere 6 seconds left, the Stone House Team escaped the mine disaster! Our name was placed on the board for being only the third team that month to escape the challenge. We ended our day with a victory picture!
As we relate this team building adventure to the day-to-day work with our clients, we know that it truly takes collaboration to get to the other side.
