Professional Development Activity:

Financial Administration staff, randomly seated at fifteen tables, were charged with developing a list of the top ten traits desired in a Financial Administration employee. Intended to be a hands-on activity, a pyramid of ten boxes and 40 index cards pre-printed with suggested traits were provided to each table.
 
Table leaders led participants in discussion to narrow the list to just ten traits and then ranked the ten traits to build a pyramid. The resulting fifteen pyramids formed an impressive display across the front of the meeting room. As the final step, a divisional list of top ten traits was compiled by weighting the individual table results, and a divisional pyramid was presented.
