Episode 118: TEAMWORK

The best remote team building activities

Everyone is still trying to get used to remote work, but the three biggest things people struggle with remote work are unplugging after work, loneliness, and collaboration and/or communication. Even now, over 18 months later, too many teams still haven’t caught on to the fact that you have to overcome these critical issues and build teamwork, trust, and empower vulnerability. In this episode, we will look at why remote team building is critical to your success and walk through some of my favorite remote team building activities I have done with teams over the years.

“An almost mandatory podcast for anyone trying to better understand what it means to become a great leader (and not only the creative type!). Wonderful, clear, sharp and abolutely right.”


“It’s as if Stephen has been looking over our shoulders and taking notes. He speaks to the heart and soul of creativity, his advice and insight is like having a mentor on podcast speed dial.”


“I’ve been in a creative rut these past few weeks and this podcast has been a beacon of light for me.

Stephen’s point of view is brutally realistic but still comes off as inspiring. I am constantly sharing his ideas with coworkers and peers.”

“Brilliant, Human-centered & ( Dare I Say ) Life-changing Podcast

When it comes to creativity, innovation and design, I’m the outsider. Always wanting to dance and play in this world, except I lacked the raw talent, education and vocabulary. I’ve rediscovered my crazy. Every episode gives me the courage to tap into my creativity as a professional and human. Truly, life-changing.”


“I cannot emphasize enough the impact it’s made on myself personally and professionally.

I’ve turned many on to it technically NOT in the creative field… – my beau in the Oil industry as a consultant/engineer that cleans refineries, a PR colleague is now glued to the episodes about personal branding as she starts her own consultancy,my sister a lab technician in a hospital is starting to see herself differently after the “Success is a Choice” episode. I could go on… And as one who aspires to change the way Creatives work and are seen in society, this is one of my solid resources for inspiration as well as a constant barrage of ‘a-ha’s’!”
