Leave room for real dialogue

Leave room for real dialogue

Interdisciplinary teams have to leave room so that real work can get done. Because they have multiple projects, they try to limit the loss of brainpower by working for days together on one project instead of jumping between tasks.

Working together in this way ensures that people know everything that is going on, and this allows for debate and questioning that comes with bringing diverse thinkers together.

Let teams self-police within a structure

While it is necessary to give teams the freedom to work as they see fit, it is still vital to create a framework that keeps the team moving forward together.

Every team can have a team leader and account director. The team leader can remove obstacles for the team. An account director can be a stand-in for the client to help if the team gets divided with decisions.

Foster community and creativity

Foster community and creativity

Offices should be designed to facilitate communication, warmth, and interaction. If you want people to be creative and bring their best selves, you can't expect them to stand at the same desk for many hours in a day.

For example, have an outdoor dining area full of plants and a huge, inviting communal table.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
