2017 Offsite Day: sea, sun and...military training!
Kartesia’s 2017 Offsite Day was a little bit special. It may have taken place in the southern French village of Collioure, but there were no dips in the sea or suntan sessions. Instead, military fatigues and army boots were the order of the day. All the Kartesia team members went on a four-day course provided by St-Cyr Executive Education at a military base. Focusing on team efficiency and leadership skills, the course included simulation challenges with gradually increasing complexity, with close monitoring by an ex-military mentor. The training objectives included improving analytical skills and operational decision making processes in a stressful environment, fostering membership and self-commitment to reach common goals and building values such as compassion, trust and solidarity.
