Snook Advent Day 1: Snookspiration

We call it Snookspiration.

To get our brains moving, inspired and ready to kick-off a Monday morning, Snook hold a Monday Morning Meeting (MMM).

A team member delivers a 15min activity that is energising, team building, thought-provoking, or simply crazy: from Snook Inc monsters and the Wiki Band Game to naming all of the countries of the world in 15mins (or at least trying to).

MMMs are also time to share learning and reflection. Each person writes five things:

  • what I’m grateful for;
  • what I’ve learnt last week;
  • personal most important thing (MIT);
  • work MIT;
  • and what I need this week.

As a long-standing tradition, we store the first two post-its on a spike. As you can imagine, we have accumulated a lot of post-its!

Reflection and Gratitude

December is a good time to reflect on what’s happened over the past year; what we’ve been grateful for; how we’ve grown and what we’ve discovered. Here’s an overview of the hundreds of post-its from last year’s MMMs.

As we really like findings and synthesis (and may we add we’re really good at it), we discovered the top things we are grateful for. What have you learnt in the last year? What are you grateful for? Tweet us.

  • Family and friends
  • Snook team
  • Scotland // Glasgow
  • The weather (yes, we mean it!)
