How well do you know your team?


Miro - 1 truth 2 lies template

1 truth 2 lies is a simple icebreaker to do and creates healthy banter.

Here’s how to play:

  • Team members populate a total of three sticky notes with 2 lies and 1 truth.
  • Once completed, everyone uses dots to vote for the one they think is the truth.
  • Do a round-robin where each person gets to share verbally what the correct “truth” sticky was.

This icebreaker is really easy, quick and fun, and is a great way to energize your team before starting a meeting.

Stuff we’re loving rn


📚 Book: TJR’s Carrie Soto Is Back is one of those books you can binge in less than 24 hours. We know its heroine — a fearless, ambitious, career driven woman — will resonate with so many of you (especially if you identify as a daddy’s girl), and you don’t even have to like tennis.

🧥 Robe: Barefoot’s done it again with this cozy and warm robe. Perfect for lounging around during the holidays.

🪴 Plants: Some of us at TA are, how do we say it…(accidental!) plant killers. And if you can relate, you may want to check out Easyplant. Just fill the water reservoir once a month, and the plant will take care of itself.

🔒 Tool: Research from NordPass cites that an average person has around 100 passwords — basically, you’re bound to reset one (or many) if you’re picking secure passwords. 1Password is so easy to use, and it will do all the remembering for you.
