Team Mascot

As I wrote in the post about Communication Channels:

A little informality in communication makes it more humane and open.

It means more effective and positive.

For such purpose, I’ve used the solution from mass media, marketing, and sports clubs:

Each team selects their own Mascot – some well-known character(s) from comics or movies who brings luck. Examples: Simpsons, Superman, Transformers, Star Wars etc.

Then the team uses it in different places across the project:

  1. We add related images in emails.
  2. We add related images in slides and presentations. Even in demonstrations to the customer 😉
  3. We put related memes in chats
  4. We use mascot avatars in messengers
  5. We give related presents like small figures or T-Shirts for project success or for some achievements
  6. We’re using the mascot during hackathons or team events

Let me share an example of “Welcome On Board” email on our project and let’s imagine it just without the image:

Look!

It’s easy and not serious, but it unites the team and makes it really unique.

Side note: it’s nice if the team selected a mascot which includes group of characters like Simpsons or M&M’s. In this case, each team member can find something special for himself.

Don’t hesitate to be funny!

Humor makes us human!
