A highlight of 2010 at Asynchrony Solutions for me was hosting the state FFA officer teams from Kansas and Nebraska. The teams are composed of college students elected by their peers to serve a one-year leadership term. The purpose of their visit was to teach them about retrospectives by creating a workshop filled with retrospective activities they participated in as a team.
After the visit, I received a pile of mail from our guests, thanking Asynchrony for the experience. Below are highlights from the notes that really stood out to me, as they encapsulate what I love about Asynchrony:
“I really enjoyed learning about your company and taking a tour. Your work environment was very casual and interesting. I understand how beneficial it really is.”
“I found it intriguing how employees at Asynchrony work together similar to a team. It made me think how useful the skills I am learning will help me in the future.”
“It was a great time for growth and honesty for our team.”
“Thank you so much for taking us on a tour through your software company. It was such a different atmosphere than anything I have ever seen! It looks so much more fun and productive.”
“Thank you for challenging our teamwork and for having us look at different situations from different angles.”
