Here at Asana, many teams find value in team off-sites as a way to facilitate team bonding and creative thinking. Some teams will take a day-long offsite at a space outside the office for a change of scenery and intensive idea workshopping. Other teams will do what we call a “work from woods,” where they’ll gather in a house (in theory in the woods) for a few days to get to know each other and intensively plan for the year.
What do you think of team off-sites? Do you find value in them for your team and productivity, do you think they’re not as productive than we want them to be…? Would love to hear your thoughts!
