How-Wow-Pow-Chow - Improve Communication and Connection for Remote or Co-Located Teams

Updated: Feb 14, 2023

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.
