Hi <<First Name>>,
DFA National spent the dog days of summer bucking the trend. Instead of mimicking the languid tempo of hot and sticky days, we called in and logged on all over the country eager to connect, check-in and collaborate on a daily basis.
How did we create a playful, fluid working environment during the hottest months of the year? We practiced storytelling and reflection by:
- Making time to share personal histories and experience, skills we saw directly correlated to an ability to connect and engage with community partners.
- Storytelling encouraged us to practice of openness and vulnerability which broke down interpersonal barriers and built trust in real-time.
- Constantly slowing down and checking in with our teammates, partners, projects and selves.
The proof is in the photos! Check out the following images from the summer. We bet you'll be able to see the joy and warmth that was achieved through our dedicated effort to build a strong team
