Understanding rituals

  1. A ritual is something to which we assign meaning and intention.
  2. A ritual has a regular cadence, repetition, like every morning or once a week or month.
  3. A ritual goes beyond its practical purpose.

To understand a ritual, ask when employees at your company feel the most like they belong? You would know something is a ritual if it seems weird or crazy if it didn't happen. It would feel like a loss.

Rituals for hybrid and asynchronous companies

  • You can be intentional around your meetings - around beginnings and endings. It's possible to maintain some magic even when people are remote.
  • For asynchronous companies, a regular meeting during a suitable time for everyone with your camera on can still be worthwhile.
  • Managers need to build time to have one-on-ones and find out how the person is really doing. They don't need to be every week for an hour. They can be bite-sized. But you have to check in.
