MSA Annual Retreat
On Friday, June 3rd the staff of MSA gathered for staff retreat. Staff retreat is held semi-annually and serves as a great opportunity for everyone who is a part of the MSA organization to spend some time together discussing current happenings within the firm, as well as taking part in continuing education. This 2016 Summer Retreat featured continuing education on Leadership Training for All Generations conducted by Patricia Hatley. Ms. Hatley’s experience includes over 40 years in corporate leadership development, prior to beginning her own leadership training company in 2012.
MSA, like many of our corporate clients is composed of a mix of different generations. We spent time under Ms. Hatley’s leadership learning about the communication styles of each generation. Our time together was very informational and helped us build an even stronger communication awareness both internally with one another, and externally with our clients. Ms. Hatley’s presentation helped us better understand the four different generations that are at work with in MSA’s firm.
Our afternoon concluded with a firm presentation by Vickie Martin, MSA Managing Partner. Vickie reiterated to staff the purpose and mission of MSA. She also updated the staff on company statistics and she continued setting the vision and pace for MSA to continue to grow as we service our client base with excellence. The statistics showed that MSA has done a lot over the past 5 months, and the team is focused on reaching even greater heights in the second half of the year.
