Hitting Our Stride with VCU's Development and Alumni Relations Team

Part of the reason I love working for Floricane is because we have awesome clients who let us engage in really interesting work. And our current work with the Development and Alumni Relations staff at VCU is a prime example.

For the past six months we have been engaging with DAR staff across both campuses using Insights® Discovery, which is one of my favorite tools. What has been both exciting and rewarding is to see the folks at VCU really embrace what they are learning and put it into action with their teams. My conversations with the 21 different DAR teams have left me inspired and full of great ideas.

Currently, we are getting excited about our Summer Check-In with all of the DAR staff coming up in a few weeks. The agenda is a bit of a secret for the time being, but we have put together a really fun day with the incredible help of several VCU staff. It's going to be a great opportunity to get feedback on the work we have done and to kick-off our upcoming work, which includes small group leadership coaching and a focus on team effectiveness.

As we begin to discuss the next phase of our work, I am thrilled with the possibilities to create and deliver work that energizes me as much as it enhances our clients.
