How-Wow-Pow-Chow - Improve Communication and Connection for Remote or Co-Located Teams
Updated: Feb 14
Culture micro-practices are small, sometimes unconventional ideas to improve company culture, inspire new behaviours and ways of working, and promote psychological safety, collaboration, employee experience, and engagement.
Are you looking for a way to improve team cohesion and build human connections within your team?
Whether your team is remote or co-located, try starting a weekly ritual with "How, Wow, Pow, Chow." Not only does this simple culture micro-practice promote open communication and empathy, but it also helps team members feel more connected to each other and to the company as a whole.
Get everyone together and ask each person “How, Wow, Pow, Chow?”:
"How" - share how you are doing
"Wow" - share a positive or exciting moment that happened to you last week.
"Pow" - share a difficult or challenging moment that happened to you last week.
"Chow" - share the best food you ate last week.
This weekly team building exercise not only helps with remote work but also helps with team bonding and creating a positive team culture.
