Setting up custom questions, values, behaviors, and norms are easy with ChatFox. You can simply add or remove any question from our Icebreakers to focus on key questions that are important to your team's culture. Or you can add values, behaviors, and norms that team members reinforce by recommending them in Shout Outs.
Building a business culture is hard. There are so many factors to consider when creating shared values and goals across your organization. Defining those goals is easy, implementing the process required to build and evaluate those goals is the hard part.
