Late July and early August are usually referred to as the ‘dog days of summer’. This is when the weather tends to become almost unbearable, and children begin to prepare for their inevitable return to school. However, at Four Pillars Executives, this time of the year brings great excitement as it marks the beginning of our ‘travel season’.
While, our office hosts networking trips throughout the year, many of our largest trips begin in late July. This travel season continues throughout the completion of the summer and through most of the autumn season. Beginning the thirteenth of August, several corporate trainers in our office will be traveling to Chicago, IL for a training retreat. While they talk about their future endeavors with people from around the United States, our trainers will also be taking a trip to Wrigley Field and witnessing a Chicago Cubs game. In addition, they will have the chance to explore the famous Michigan Avenue and have a meal at Navy Pier.
Just one week after the Chicago training retreat, Four Pillars will be sending several office members to New York for a private Yacht Trip around the city. In addition to our own office members, many consultants and vice presidents in our organization will be in attendance, giving everyone a great opportunity to network and talk with the most successful people in our business. Those chosen to attend the trip will also have the chance to visit famous New York landmarks such as the Chrysler building and Battery Park.
In September, Alex Tabar, director of Four Pillars Executives, will be traveling to Hong Kong, China with several other office directors. While there, he hopes to discuss the expansion of our offices to the country and the multiple clients we could work with.
Our office is also traveling to Mexico the third week of October and the first week in November. After a successful trip last year, members of our office will be returning to the country to not only network with multiple office directors, but also to learn new training and recruitment techniques. There will also be time to relax and recuperate from a long travel season.
As each of these trips comes to fruition we remember one important quality that we search for in all of our applicants. Not only do we want our office members to learn from their own trainers, but we also want them to be able to learn from different countries and cultures. Each city, state, and country we visit has their own methodology for achieving success, and we travel to gain knowledge about those methods and bring it back to our offices. So as the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ continue to pass by, our office will begin its biggest traveling season. We encourage everyone to take advantage of the opportunity to learn from their adventures just as we will.
