Miroverse Challenge: Team Connection ​​​​🤝

Hi Miro Heroes :heart_eyes:,  

 

A couple of weeks ago we wrapped up our annual Distributed conference. Amazing energy and so many inspiring, creative, and fun sessions!:tada:

Apart from learning a lot, meeting new people, and feeling fortunate to be part of the process, our team definitely felt more connected than ever. Teamwork has always been at the heart of everything we do here at Miro, and Distributed 2021 made us once again reflect on how important meaningful and supportive team connections are. As we say, “play as a team to win the world!” :pray:

Inspired by all the new knowledge, we decided to learn even more, this time from our amazing Miro community members. Today, we’re kicking off a special edition of the Miro templates contest, called Miroverse Challenge: Team Connection :purple_heart:This contest is all about reflection and learning. How do you make sure your team members feel connected, supported, and happy? What are the Miro tools you use?

 

In this special edition we will have 3 award categories 🏆:

  • Icebreakers :man_dancing_tone3:

  • Meetings :bulb:

  • Team building :raised_hands:

 

To get inspired, you can check out the Distributed Day 1 and Day 2 recordings and resources.
