Even before Covid-19 drastically changed the way we work, remote teams were dispersed, disconnected, scattered—around the country, and around the globe. For the most part, people approached work as a series of tasks to be accomplished, a list of things to check off. Sure, you show up at work, give it your best, check in with your colleagues, etc etc. And for a while, it kinda worked.
But now that our nine-to-five lives have slowly devolved into a whenever-to-whatever, it’s becoming harder and harder to feel engaged, collected, and energized. Work is draining us dry. And that has nothing to do with swapping pants for leggings every day, and everything to do with the way we’re disconnected—from our teams, as well as from ourselves.
We’re overwhelmed, Zoom-fatigued.
There has to be a better way.
Good news: There is a better way.
And that’s Fujoli.
What is Fujoli?
Fujoli stands for Fun, Joy, and Lightness.
Okay. But… What does that actually mean?
Fujoli is a better way to engage with remote teams
That’s what Fujoli brings to the (virtual) table: A way to bring teams together that’s more than just corny icebreakers, and much more engaging than a lecture you forget on the drive home.
Fujoli offers science-based virtual sessions we call playlabs that are unlike anything else out there—and they offer transformative results.
Fujoli creates online experiences where people can come together as humans, connect authentically, and use play to break down barriers. Play is often seen as the opposite of work, but in reality, play is an essential counterpart to productivity and well-being. The world needs more play! We’re all so freaking serious, and boring training sessions don’t make that any better. We need play and joy to unleash our team’s potential!
Play makes sucky days survivable.
Play brings new perspectives.
Play helps you lower stress hormones, and produce more of the feel-good chemicals that lift you up, hold you together, and keep you going.
Who is Fujoli?
Fujoli was founded by former executives and team leaders who can directly relate to the challenges teams face every day. We hold advanced credentials in coaching teams and individuals, and we keep on top of the latest research on team performance, transformation, and change. We have a passion for developing individuals and teams through play, human connection, and gamified learning.
Simply put: For us, play is about the joy of discovery and skill in action—not about platitudes or forced encounters or trust falls.
How does Fujoli work?
Fujoli works to address your team’s unique needs with custom-crafted sessions that provide arcs of shared, collaborative learning. We create online experiences where people across remote teams can come together, engage in a safe, fun space—not forced, not lame (we promise), not super woo woo—for smart play.
When your team comes to the playlab, we take the time to sync everyone up, like a tuning fork. We all know what it’s like, rushing to make a meeting, coming in from here or there, distracted by a masked-up grocery run or a last-minute bit of homework help for your kid’s virtual class session, logging onto a call with barely enough time to spare to check that your hair is okay and there’s nothing on your shirt. We get it.
And we know just what to do to change it.
Inside the playlab, teams can truly connect to each other, drop their facade of “all business, all the time.” Take a breath and feel, more than just think. Through purposeful play, people find themselves breaking down barriers, becoming aware that they’re more than just harried individuals, chained to an endless list of tasks. A team is an organism, a system, a unit. We’re not just workers, we’re human beings, with a desperate need for connection and creativity. Even globally-dispersed teams can come together.
Conscious teams become thriving teams. Fujoli is the key to that.
Now more than ever, companies are putting employee well-being on the top of their priority lists. They’re starting to care about the impacts of this new remote work environment on mental health. Burnout is real, and it takes a real toll.
Companies that build connections can find new ways to heal, thrive, and achieve greater results. Innovation isn’t just about having the best ideas, it’s about execution. And when it comes to execution, collaboration depends on trust, teamwork, and connection.
If your team is all heads-down, work work work, focus, achieve, metrics, whatever, then you seriously need Fujoli. There is real value in conscious play!
It’s fun, but it has a purpose that reaches out far beyond a single session.
It’s joyful, and it opens doors to refreshing, authentic engagement.
It brings a true sense of lightness to our heavy, burdened world.
And, most of all, it's a new, powerful way to level up the quality of your teamwork and collaboration.
