Live Lightning Design Jam: How can we build genuine connections as a remote team?

Watch The Team In Action

The Prompt: How can we build genuine connections as a remote team?

Remote is the new normal. It brought with it some benefits, some challenges, and some frustrations. Now that our team is fully remote, we are looking for ways to build connections. We decided to use one of our go-to tools, a Lightning Design Jam, to break down this challenge and uncover next steps.

Your company’s growth and teams happiness requires continuing to look for ways to improve and ensuring all voices are heard. That being said, breaking down complex problems is hard especially when you need to get buy-in from the business and alignment across multiple stakeholders.
