As you begin your virtual workshop, tell your team that they’ll each be writing a “story” about the project you’re embarking on together—then sharing it with the group. Writing and reading aloud can make some people feel nervous, so it’s a good idea to lay down some ground rules:
- The stories don’t have to be well-written! Whatever pops to mind is fine—there are no grammar police in the room.
- The stories can take whatever form you like: a press release, newspaper article, company memo, and more.
- It’s good to be honest and include details you normally wouldn’t mention for fear of being rude.
