Instilling greater synchronicity and connection for a remote creative team
This remote / hybrid working thing. It’s still a thing, isn't it. And it’s still not easy for teams to navigate. There are many unanswered questions:
Yup, there’s tension. And even the most creative people wrangle with it.
WePresent - WeTransfer's wonderful digital arts and editorial platform - invited us to join their recent team day to help answer some of these questions.
Safe to say, death by PowerPoint was not on the agenda.
We surfaced what gets the team operating at their best, shared a few tips on designing online experiences, and threw in a few essential Wavetable provocations, including:
The main event, though? An exciting upcoming project the team were developing.
But rather than working on the project itself, we instead asked them to create the optimal environment to plan and design it.
Yup, a little meta. A workshop brief to design a workshop for the workshop brief.
But this is valuable stuff.
Invest the time and energy to design the space and choose the right tools for the team, and the real work almost takes care of itself.
And watch out for WePresent's curator collaborations - we’re sworn to secrecy, but they're very nice indeed.
“After almost two years of getting used to working remotely we needed some inspiration on how to think differently, motivate ourselves and approach challenges in new ways. And Wavetable's Learning Lab did just that! Interactive, informative and fun (yes, really) the workshop changed our team processes for the better.”
