Remote teams may not get as much time to spend together to really understand each other’s similarities and differences and learn the best way of working together as a team. Running a Team Discovery report will allow you to visualize the critical differences in styles among your team, influence positive communication, and avoid toxicity. Plot the team and schedule a video meeting to discuss this as a group. Be sure to host discussions in the context of what the team is working on and to plot their team priorities using the tool.

Consider using the Stop, Start, and Continue structure for these conversations with your team.

What do we already do very well as a group which should be continued.
