how DOES team journeys™ work?
Pick Your Content Themes.
We start by asking: What are the skills and perspectives that you need now to transform your team’s focus, outputs, and engagement?
Team Journeys™ are modular by design, allowing you to choose from more than a dozen content themes that matter to your team. Each theme focuses on a central skillset or mindset of hybrid culture building and remote teamwork. Choose as many or as few themes as you want.
For each theme, a core question frames and helps guide our targeted hands-on explorations to level up your team’s hybrid productivity, collaboration, and agency.
How can we reimagine the water-cooler? Themed modules come together to create a peer-to-peer culture building journey where participants can explore, co-create, and connect.

In the end I discovered that I didn’t need to quit my job to be happy. I just needed to change the rules of engagement.
