Thank you so much for your participation. Now let’s stuff that envelope with well wishes for a speedy recovery!
A year ago we set out on an ambitious path to incorporate something brand new into our workflows that would ultimately add more accountability to our goal achievement. GrowthSport has now become a normal rhythm within our work week and has helped us to achieve many goals- everything from competing in triathlons to securing $10M transformational gifts to defining our essential qualities as a leader. In fact, there have been 34,374 KPAs entered to date since this time last year, with 30,027 of those being completed. That’s an 87% completion rate! Thank you for your willingness to adopt something new and disruptive into our strategy and goal-setting mindsets.
With that, the Internal Engagement & Execution team invites you to enjoy a sweet treat tomorrow, Friday February 8, to celebrate our GrowthSportversary! University Catering will be delivering sport-themed cookies to all of our Development locations on campus after 9:30am.
Again, many thanks to all for incorporating GrowthSport into your goal achievement which helps the entire department reach its goals. Lastly, feel free to add “eat a cookie” as a KPA this week. You deserve it!
All the best,
Your Internal Engagement & Execution Team
