launch remote and hybrid teams

According to research by J. Richard Hackman, 90% of the variance in team performance is due to how they are designed and launched.

Great remote teams respect each other's circumstances, use virtual collaboration for actual collaboration rather than for status updates, and optimise their system of work by reflecting on data.

Our team launcher certification gives you everything you need to get your remote or hybrid teams humming, improve staff engagement, and retain your best talent.

build connectivity between humans

Remote working, distributed teams and hybrid organisations are challenged by the lack of connectivity that we get by sharing a physical space together. The connective tissues that help us collaborate in the physical space aren't lost - but benefit from some dedicated focus.

The Story.Me cards provide four dimensions for workers and event participants to express themselves through. "Home me" helps people to share their home life and who they care about. "Work me" allows a space to share professional achievements, skills and roles. "Fun me" is for showing what participants do for leisure or where they'd like to spend their vacations. Lastly "Identify me" where people can share personality traits and other information about themselves.
