| CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 20
Meeting Date: January 28, 2003
Subject/Title: Team Building and Goal Setting Workshops
Submitted by: Brian Swisher, Mayor
John Stevenson, City Manager
Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager
Direct staff to schedule a joint City Council/Planning Commission Team Building Workshop on a date selected by the Council.
Direct staff to schedule a Goal Setting Workshop between the Council and Department Directors on a date selected by the Council.
While Mayor Swisher, Council member Gutierrez and the City Manager were at the League of California Cities’ Mayors and Councilmembers Institute January 8th through 10th, they heard several speakers talk of the benefits of Team Building and Goal Setting Workshops. The Mayor asked the City Manager to bring the issue to the Council for a general discussion of the benefits of these sessions and see if there was a consensus on the Council to move forward with one or both recommendations and to select dates if appropriate.
The new Council has not been involved in setting goals with the Department Directors yet, and it has been several years since the previous Goal Setting session. The Department Directors would benefit greatly from a session like this by focusing their attention on the areas of prime concern of the Council. Likewise, a general Team Building session between the Council and Planning Commission would assist both in understanding the strengths and weaknesses of each and how to work better together for the betterment of the City.
