How to Foster Communication and Build Camaraderie through COVID-19

In the third unit of the Salesforce Trailhead module, “Lead During Challenging Times,” we learn how to “Foster Connection and Build Camaraderie.” In today’s pandemic times, this lesson holds special importance…

Salesforce Trailhead encourages that when you complete this unit, you will be able to…

  • “Design just-for-fun activities that draw your team together
  • And inspire your team to plan their own events”

Just because we are social distancing, doesn’t mean we can’t socialize virtually. As a leader of your organization, you should encourage your team to connect.

Create opportunities for your team to connect, whether it be through a virtual coffee chat or another activity. If there’s someone on your team who enjoys organizing get-togethers and social activities, you may appoint them to manage and create virtual parties. Delegate!

You can pick a theme day to help your team connect, whether it be Taco Tuesday or Wellness Wednesdays. You may prompt your team to send in pictures of themselves participating to create connections with each otehr. Enlist your creative team members to brainstorm ideas and make it happen!

You may even take your team on virtual tours of museums, zoos, national parks, etc. There are so many possibilities.

If you have a wellness team within your organization, you may create an invite for people to join your wellness team members for yoga sessions over lunch or other physical activities.

Getting your team to connect “just-for-fun” poses a lot of benefits!

If you aren’t into agenda-setting, you may create a “water cooler” meeting just to offer your team the time to catch up.

These are just some of the many ideas you can use to help build camaraderie and foster connections while your team works from home through COVID-19!

Salesforce offers more ideas to help your team stay connected in this unit.
