  1. Through bonding: Hosting a new ‘fun’ event or team activity (ie happy hour)
  2. Through individuals: The introduction of a new learning or development opportunity that services individuals primarily but done in a group setting (ie ‘discover your personal purpose’ or ‘identify your values’)
  1. Pay attention to how often people speak in the first person (I), the second person (We), and the third person (It). Try inviting the group to only speak in the first or second person. Make a note of what happens.
  2. Begin your meeting with a short grounding practice. Invite everyone to feel their feet on the floor, the way their body makes contact with the chair, and how it feels to arrive in this moment right now. Start with becoming present to yourselves and then each other.
