Building a Team of Teams (and Learning Along the Way) – Teach for America
Teach For America’s approximately 1500 staff members are spread across 45 states (not to mention the District of Columbia). Sometimes each team almost feels like its own separate organization with its own separate culture. When employees expressed a need for connection and collaboration with the broader organization, the staff culture and communications team tried everything from new communications platforms to new event series to staff recognition campaigns.
During this session, learn from what worked… and what didn’t, including how to:
- Connect and distinguish communications channels, so staff can find what they need when/how they need it
- Build out different types of event spaces for different types of learning
- Foster peer-driven staff recognition in a way that feels less forced (and costs less money)
