Rituals, Routines & Belonging with Erica Keswin

Rituals matter. The way we bring ourselves to our work and our relationships has an impact. In her book, Rituals Roadmap: The Human Way to Transform Everyday Routines Into Workplace Magic, Erica Keswin explores how we can turn things we do over and over again into opportunities to create deep connection and purpose for our work and home lives. Rituals have the power to cultivate a deep sense of belonging and, when used intentionally, to create stronger teams, families and communities.

In our conversation this week, we discuss:

  • Why intentional, communal rituals have such an impact on teams, groups and even families;
  • How to make our rituals purposeful and personal;
  • Ways to help others feel like they belong;
  • Rituals that help us work better but also unplug from work better.
