Offsites made easy: simple tools for powerful conversations.

get it

Accompany.io - Team Offsites has some really neat tools that teams can use to have the conversations that make for a great offsite. We tried them and really liked them, and I know they've signed up a bunch of big clients. They are new, but the founder worked with the co-CEO of Bridgewater (the hedge fund) and knows what he's talking about.

    Pros: 

    High degree of value for a very small amount of time input

    Cons: 

    Early, but there are some obvious next steps that could unlock a ton of value for your team!

    We used Accompany here at Loom for our first retreat: before, during, and after. Being a first time founder, it was pretty revelationary for me to go through the process with Accompany, collect data from my teammates, and then have specific action items based on the feedback.

    Most all problems that companies face are Who? problems. If you can make sure your team is happy, productive, and inspired then you can focus on what matters most to your business which is innovating. Accompany takes the guess work out of making that happen.

    Thanks Parker and Accompany team for building such an insightful product. Excited to see where this goes!

  • Pros: 

    Easy to use interface and immediate comparison/results for the team. The learning is democratized and shared with everyone.

    Cons: 

    Some UI changes would make the process more intuitive.

    We've been using Accompany at our small team for a few months. The insights are immediate and tangible. With little effort, our team dynamic is described in great detail and peer-to-peer interactions made more clear and deliberate thanks to the immediate advice from the platform. It's simply a no-brainer for teams. We're planning to expand to our federated global network of volunteer groups across 60+ countries soon.

Hi I'm one of the makers of Accompany.io. We launched these tools because we want to help you get to the heart of what matters for team performance. We know that great teams aren’t accidents.​ Years of research, from Google to Harvard to Pixar, confirms that top teams intentionally build a few simple practices. At Accompany.io, we build practical tools that make it easy for any leader tap into those practices, and help your team or company work better together. And there's no better time to super-charge your team than during an offsite. We're excited to release these offsite tools to help teams kick off 2018. But they're always evolving, so we'd love to hear feedback!

I like it-Really simple and straightforward way for teams to think about how they can interact with each other. I can also see this as a how for managers or team leaders to understand what's working and what's not. Does this work better as a one time thing or can this be used multiple times for the same team?
Parker MitchellMaker@parker_mitchell · Founder, Accompany.io
@drummer80y Hi Chris - we designed it for both. People start with it being a standalone - it adds immediate value to an offsite conversation, or even a team meeting. But there are also lots of customization features that managers can use to make it useful over time - checking in values, mission alignment, new hire culture integration, new manager promotion, etc.

Quick question: What are you finding the practical team size limits to be with this? How well does it scale to larger teams, and are there any specific things to consider as it does?
Parker MitchellMaker@parker_mitchell · Founder, Accompany.io
@brendanbaker Hi Brendan - thanks for your interest. We suggest to people that they do the exercise with a group that is working closely together. Often this might be different from the hierarchy - it might be a product launch team, or cross functional team. Usually, these are 5-15 people. Once it gets above 15, we suggest breaking it into sub-groups. However, the data can be aggregated at any level, so you can see patterns across 15, 150 or 1500 people.
