My team is distributed across the globe—in the Philippines, Dubai, Spain, and multiple US time zones. The past few weeks I've been focusing on how to make us feel like a 'team' even though none of sit together.
We've started a simple task that has made us all more connected. When we log-in for the day, we each share three words that define that day. Mine today:
Coaches: I'm holding a focus group to learn more about how we can make them more effective and their lives easier.
Celebrate: My husband and I are going out to dinner to celebrate a new sale.
Pitch: I have a mock investment pitch for the incubator I'm in (Halcyon) on Monday.
These could be work or life-related. It's up to you. It takes 30 seconds, yet I feel connected. I kinda want to steal this practice to other parts of my life. I'd love to hear the three words of my closest friend groups every morning.
What are yours today?
