It was a privilege spending Leadership Academy weekend with this year’s talented qualifiers. The Chateaux Deer Valley in Park City, Utah, tucked high into the tree-covered hills, provided the perfect setting for qualifiers to relax, learn and be acknowledged for their successes. We were also lucky enough to have three qualified New Zealand Team Members fly to Utah for the event, and their presence made the event that much more special.
The weekend began over a delicious meal at Windy Ridge Cafe where the Team Members in attendance became acquainted. The first full day kicked off with a morning training session with Synergy’s top leaders in North America. From there, the group traveled to Nature’s Sunshine Headquarters in Lehi to tour the Hughes Center for Research and Innovation, and learned how Synergy products are developed, tested and then clinically evaluated. That afternoon, they also had the opportunity to give back through the United Way, a non-profit organization with a 100-year history of helping communities. The group assembled 144 art kits, including paint, crayons, coloring books, and more, that will be sent to school children who need an activity to engage in after school or during school holidays. Then it was time to head up to Sundance Mountain Resort’s beautiful open-air theater for the Bluebird Cafe Concert Series, which featured today’s big names in country music songwriting.
The final day began with an informative and inspiring training session featuring North America General Manager Shane Greer and Synergy Founder Dan Higginson. Lunch was served with some healthy competition at Jupiter Bowl for a fun afternoon. The event closed with an elegant dinner at the Stein Erickson Lodge where Team Members were recognized for their efforts in qualifying for Leadership Academy.
It was impressive to see these leaders’ commitment to the business as they shared Synergy’s message to those they met throughout the weekend’s festivities, and even recruited a few of these new faces as customers and distributors. Thank you to all those who made the effort to attend Leadership Academy! We look forward to our retreat to mountains next summer.
