Discussion/Reflection Questions

  • Even when we’re not together in person, it’s important to celebrate company culture with your team. What are opportunities for you to celebrate wins with your teams? Do you have creative suggestions for creating fun, positive get togethers that honor the good work your team produces? 

  • Taking time to connect with your team members and know their stories is one way to show you care and want to understand their perspective. What are ways you can prioritize this in virtual settings? 
    • What have you learned about what motivates your team members during this time? What has changed for you in the way you attempt to motivate the team? 

  • How do you balance giving potential leaders the opportunity to run with different project, while also staying informed on their progress? Can you think of situations where you needed to offer direct input to help potential leaders stay on track?
