Happy Thursday, how quickly the week goes by when there are great plans. This week we had a great plan. On Tuesday, part of the team changed the office for ceramics and stoves :)
It’s great to see our colleagues outside of work, we look like other people, don’t we? In another scenario and with other topics of conversation, we can bring out other facets of ourselves.
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”Helen Keller
Leading to grow well
Because to grow, you have to build a team, and you have to do it well. The whole team, side by side, makes Maria Pascual possible. Everything is born in Maria, but it is thanks to the whole team that you can wear our jewelry. From whom talks to suppliers, who manages the website, who always attends you when you need it, … We are a team, and it shows when we are pressed for time or when we have to help a colleague.
Leading a team is not easy, and it is clear that we have a lot to learn and to do, but we do our best to be a team.
If there is one thing we always look for in anyone who joins the team, it is:
Enthusiasm moves mountains, and there is nothing more important than enjoying what you do.
Ability to adapt;
everything goes fast, very fast, and we have to be able to adapt to the changes that come and to the needs that arise.
When you feel like doing something, you do it. Maybe it’s not perfect the first time or the second time, but with desire and perseverance, everything works out!
We keep working hard because the best is yet to come. And now I’m going to tell you what we did :)
A morning full of art
For this team outing, we chose two workshops. The first one was a ceramics workshop. We could choose the piece we wanted to paint and decorate. The place was beautiful, and it was great to let our imagination fly to paint. How important is creativity for everything in life.
The other one was about cooking, specifically Italian. We did a menu for groups and tasted pizza, eggplant Parmesan, vitello tonnato, and tiramisu. You can imagine how much we enjoyed ourselves :)
By the way, both places highly recommended, write it down in case you want to go with a friend, family, …
I’ll go with…
Although the pizza was spectacular and the hand-painted mug to drink the morning coffee are beautiful, I’ll keep the moments of laughter, the moments of concentration, learning and seeing all the colleagues enjoying together.
We have been able to get to know each other better and from a different perspective. Behind Maria Pascual there is a team with very different talents, specifically in the workshops we were the logistics department, customer, sales, design, marketing and finance. And together we enjoyed the experience equally. Besides, sharing the morning with the bosses, that’s cool! Yes, of course Maria Pascual and Carla also got floured and painted :)
I think all companies should involve their team like this, make them feel important, make them feel that they are part of it.
Undoubtedly, an incredible experience that I am looking forward to repeating.
I want to avoid forgetting to mention all the people who are also part of the Maria Pascual team, but for logistical reasons and distance could not be there. From here, a big hug to all of you, those who were here on Tuesday and those who were not.
Thank you once again for being here, see you next Thursday :)
