Add Meaning to your Presidents Day Celebration

Designate  President’s Day as a day of reflection, a day of leadership development, and a day team building!

Looking for innovative ways to inspire your team without investing in a major team building initiative?  President’s Day is the perfect day to  incorporate reflection, leadership exercises, and inspirational activities  into the workday’s normal routine.  If you are among the lucky ones who actually get this national holiday off, consider choosing another day to achieve the same results.  Model your next “Great Leaders Day” after Smith College’s Mountain Day where every year the college president chooses a beautiful fall day and announces a holiday  day off  to re-invigorate the soul by ringing the college bells.
