Think about the occasions or activities where you have an extra feeling of togetherness. Then ask a colleague to do the same exercise and compare your answers. A possible next step could be to plan more of these activities.
Togetherness often comes into focus during autumn kick- offs, but tends to get forgotten during the rest of the year. Research conducted by psychology researcher Angela Lis indicates that this is unfortunate for everyone who wants to keep their colleagues and wants them to be happy. She has studied how team spirit in a work group acts as a protective factor against stress and burnout, among other things. In her studies, she has also seen that people who feel unity with the working group stay longer at a workplace and perform better. So how can we bring in activities that strengthen togetherness throughout the year?
