Welcome back to Creativity Unlocked, brought to you by Fast Company and Microsoft.
We’ve been doing a lot of solo exercises so far, but this week’s activity is all about collaboration and getting to know your team better.
ABOUT THIS WEEK’S EXERCISE
There can be a disconnect between teams that, if left untreated, can create blindspots during big projects. It’s not enough to know your team member’s individual strengths and weaknesses, you need to know what makes them tick to ensure a thriving workplace culture.
WORKING FOR THE WEEKEND
At some point this week, take a few minutes to sit down with your team. Go around in a circle and have everyone describe one highlight and one lowlight from the weekend. (Yes, you have to share that embarrassing karaoke story.)
MOMENT TO SHARE
Share something you didn’t know about your team members that you wish you would have known during a previous project.
