Earth Month 2012
Friday Power Story
Youíll be relieved to know that Viridian CEO Michael Fallquist really doesnít like to lose. In fact, when his team wasn't doing well he played even harder, even when the weather was rainy and cloudy. While it may sound like it was all play and no work in the sand and sun, we did learn an important lesson: If life really were a beach, and there was a volleyball game going on, our stay in Rio showed that Viridian would probably win.
We hope you enjoy our final video post from Rioólook for more recaps to come once we return to headquarters!
The Viridian leaders, many of whom did not know each other well, have had quality time to compare notes and reflect on their roles as the pioneers of our company. Representatives from different states were able to discuss what has been working for their respective networks and have candid conversations about what critical steps they need to take next. And, most importantly, they discussed how to convey their experience on Viridianís first annual global sustainability retreat to their networks.
Many of the leaders agreed that this trip allowed them to see the bigger picture and fully understand the importance of our mission on a more personal level, renewing and expanding their Viridian dedication. And if a discussion was still going after fishing for piranhas or having an ice cold cerveja at the lodge, it could easily be settled at the poker table.
