Many companies have rituals when special things happen.

Every year at the Year Beginning Meetings, Walmart have a ‘ringing of the bell’ ceremony that signifies when someone has done something special. I’ve seen the same ringing of the bell in start-ups to celebrate a sale. In Emergn we have the ‘Kaboom!’. We are a virtual company with people spread across the world and it’s not easy to do the physical rituals, so we resort to Slack and email to share news. A Kaboom! is a small celebration when we win a new client or when one of our products gets the first sale. When we see the emails come in, it brings a moment of joy and celebration to our work.


What ritual or act can you bring to your team, work or company to celebrate all of those moments that should be treasured?
