Many of us have now been working from home for almost three months. It's the thing we all secretly wished for on those long office days, but now it seems we miss the connection and group energy it provided. So how can we spark this team spirit once more through the lense of our computers or phones?
We believe teamwork is the best way to spark engagement. Assigning tasks and goals to accomplish together will incetivize communication between those individuals. Even a quick phone conversation can really build engagement. Next, make sure to allow for personal time in group video meetings. Give every co-worker an opportunity to express any emotions or thoughts in that moment, allowing them full disclosure and giving them a space to feel comfortable. Have others listen and chime in when they desire.
Try these tecniques out and watch your team connection grow.
