In 2020, Integrated Work began to explore what it would mean to move into a self-management structure. We evolved from using Holacracy to a human-first model we call KOAN: a kind, open, adaptive network. At our September 2021 staff retreat, our first in-person time together since the adoption of KOAN, (don’t worry, we were all vaccinated and masked), we lived into our KOAN principles in how we behaved together and in the way we designed the time we shared.
For anyone who has ever “dialed-in” to a large meeting or event, we know that connecting people deeply and well at a distance doesn’t happen automatically. So, how will we imagine new ways to do that well in this changed world? What creative solutions will we dream up to connect across time and space? How can we repurpose existing tools and environments to come together in new ways? How might you use existing office spaces differently or reallocate travel or expense budgets to support new ways of “being together?” What creative strategies are you exploring to adapt in these times? Are you ready for hybrid events?
Moving your conference or vendor fair from an in-person gathering to virtual may seem scary, especially when you want to be sure that your event is an engaging and valuable experience for your attendees. If you’re getting ready to take your meetings and events virtual, we are here to help.
Human connection remains as critical as ever, most especially in the high-tech, nearly people-free, space landscape. We recently had the privilege of partnering with the International Space University on an international and interdisciplinary 5-week program that models humanizing virtual interactions at their best.
Here at Integrated Work, we are continuously exploring and discovering new tools and ways to host events for our clients. We love to discover platforms that allow us to design low risk environments like this virtual vendor fair – a wonderful and engaging way to highlight your partners in a virtual world.
