Although we're passionate about facilitating learning, sometimes we're asked to do something feel-good or funky – programs that incite laughter and camaraderie that extend beyond the boundaries of the organisation or team.
Not that the day was entirely without learning: Atlas Iron participants learned how to better communicate and trust by working with Activ clients and letting them lead the way; they practiced showing appreciation by saying "thank you" and showing support by making flower arrangements and delivering them with a hug and a speech to those in the community who volunteer their time to make the world a better place; they learned to coordinate their actions across the entire organisation by writing and publishing a collective children's book for the Starlight Children's Foundation to utilise and sell; they learned how to be respectful and humble by learning how to sing from the St Patrick's Community Support Centre's homeless choir; and they learned to lead by thinking about the wake they were leaving behind. They did all this whilst laughing all day.
