Ready to try Teamwork Blocks with your team?

The average 30-person remote team saves hundreds of hours per week with Teamwork Blocks. That's fucked up.

Ready to give your remote team that critical 'place' where they can do great work, together?

We've worked with teams to optimize getting these units on your calendar successfully, and quickly. Those tips are here, and our office is always open if you wanna chat more.

Step 1: Take The Performance Assessment

Before using Teamwork Blocks to save time, energy, and bring your team back together to do great work...

We need to take a second to identify which performance pains your team is feeling today, or at risk of feeling soon.

Knowing these pains helps us all make sure we know what problems we're solving, the unique challenges your remote team is navigating and how many Teamwork Blocks you might want to try to get on the calendar each week.

Step 2: Plan For Success

What exactly does a successful Teamwork Block look and feel like?

We've got you covered. We've pulled out the important principles that lay underneath all the different implementations of these black magic calendar blocks, and put them together for you.

Step 3: Communicate With Your Team

We suggest communicating before it goes on the calendar, so your Team knows what to expect, and why this new work unit is being added to your tech stack.



Let them know why these are little golden schedule nuggets of time saving, energizing, efficient, high impact teamwork.

Step 4: Put It On the Calendar

Add Teamwork Blocks as a recurring work unit to your Team's calendar.

Step 5: Try it Out!

Get ready to feel like you're really together with your team. Driving results, having more productive meetings, and making the world a better place. Or whatever it is you do 😉

But seriously. You're truly going to feel like you're working from the same place.

And while that alone is enough to feel more connected than many remote teams have ever felt before, you're also going to drive some amazing results in a lot less time.
