Tinton Falls, NJ - The Millennium Group's (TMG's) 2016 Leadership Summit from August 4th through August 5th, 2016, brought our leaders to TMG headquarters in Tinton Falls, NJ to participate in this unique professional learning opportunity. Leaders nationwide, including leaders in the Executive Team, Human Resources, Operations, Sales, Business Development and Marketing attended. The summit is designed to foster in-depth dialogue coupled with collaborative work.
As part of the Summit on August 4th, everyone broke up into smaller groups to discuss Myers-Briggs Test results: a questionnaire that was taken by the attendees prior to the summit. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an introspective self-report questionnaire designed to indicate psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. The attendees then sat down together to learn about departmental updates: in-depth topic discussions designed to shine spotlights on present and upcoming policies, practices and exemplary examples from Field, Marketing and Corporate.
In an effort to foster teamwork and togetherness in a dynamic new way, as well as introduce attendees to fascinating and overlooked places in New Jersey, TMG hosted a scavenger hunt to explore local New Jersey landmarks. The attendees broke into smaller groups and visited places such as: the Count Basie Theatre, Trap Door Escape Room, Bon Jovi house, Allen House, Navesink Twin Lights, Suneagles Golf Club, and Sea Bright. Although attendees enjoyed exploring incredible locations throughout New Jersey, every hunt essentially highlighted the importance of teamwork and the value of each team member's contribution as well as fascinating aspects of group dynamics and problem solving.
On August 5th, all of the attendees volunteered their time and efforts with The Boys and Girls Club of Red Bank and Lunch Break, two great local organizations located in Red Bank, NJ within about 10 minutes from our Tinton Falls corporate office.
At the Boys and Girls pf Red Bank, volunteers began the interior and exterior cleanup work needed to get the building ready to serve area youths in August. With generous donations of time and material, the group of volunteers tackled the two-story building to help provide a more efficient and organized space. At the Lunch Break, a nonprofit which provides food and clothing to residents and families throughout New Jersey, volunteers helped prepare food, clean tables, shelve food in the pantry, organize books, and work outside.
Finally at the close of the Summit, all of the attendees spent a nice evening at Monmouth Park Racetrack with great food, company and horses!
