DIAGNOSIS & SOLUTIONS FOR DISTRIBUTED TEAMS

Unsettled has been a fully distributed team since our founding. We leverage this firsthand experience in our most active advisory engagements to diagnose and develop solutions for distributed teams.We work with management to understand their pain points and the challenges of their works. We then develop and implement design solutions for communications, culture, structure, goal setting, accountability and reporting, and much more.

A typical engagement includes:

  • Complimentary consultation call to discuss working together. 
  • Quickly gather info from across your team. 
  • Design focused on solutions with you and your team in the driver seat.
  • Immediate training and implementation of new systems and strategies.  
  • On-going observation and advising to management.

DIGITAL CULTURE & COMMUNITY BUILDING

Unsettled is human-centric in all that we do. This starts with our approach to culture and community building.  We design digital experiences, rituals, events, and structures that add up to trusted relationships. This is what makes great culture and communities.

Contact us below if you would like help to assess, design, and implement culture and community in digital environments. 

INFORMATION GATHERING

Information is the lifeblood of your organization. It’s everywhere and yet it’s underutilized. Unsettled can rapidly implement surveys, focus groups, and design sessions, all done online, to gather information and pull it back into the hands of leaders.

There’s a good chance that one of the first activities we will do in any engagement is gathering information because, in remote environments, it seems to hide more than leaders realize.

Unsettled is a global community for those who embrace the unknown and value meaningful human connection. Our mission is to inspire a lifelong pursuit of growth, meaning, and adventure through travel and shared experiences.
