With that let’s take a look at the Reconnecting the Workspace Tip found at the end of Chapter 5. Here’s what I wrote:
RECONNECTING THE WORKSPACE TIP—CREATING CONNECTION
Reconnecting workspaces requires regular attention and focus. Dedicating time to build, and check in around trust, safety, and connection, is important. What time are you earmarking for regular check-ins?
Activities you may want to incorporate include:
• Time earmarked in the team for discussion about how the team is doing, not just business.
• Using breakouts where possible to move conversation to smaller, more intimate groups.
• Create peer learning partners to keep conversations flowing and boost connection.
Consider how you want to build connection on a community level. Building community in the virtual space involves creating a shared sense of purpose (Why are we here?), a common identity, along with a sense of belongingness (Do I belong here?), and safety (Do I feel safe and that I can contribute and will be respected?”
