People trudge into the building, settle into a cubicle or work station, and never leave the confines of their department. Lunch is consumed at one’s desk and, unless one has meetings to attend or conference calls to join, the only conversations occur with those in close proximity.
So here’s something awesome you can do today.
Grab a co-worker or colleague and invite them to lunch. Talk about music, movies, Mardi Gras plans…whatever. Ask them about their family and tell them about yours. Build a bond. Build trust. Connect as people.
EXTRA points for this if you work in human resources and head to lunch with someone from IT or sales or marketing or….?
