The virtual water cooler

How are you going with this new normal? What is it like working from home?

Many of you have shared that while you are making the best of what work looks like right now, you are missing the connection and contact with people at work. Hallway chats, chats at the photocopier, joking in the lunch room, Starbucks runs. You know, the water cooler stuff.

So today, try this:
Schedule a coffee with a colleague. An online one! FaceTime, Zoom, Skype, Google Hangouts, whatever works. Schedule a time where you sit down together and chat.

And there is one rule. YOU CAN’T TALK ABOUT WORK.

This is not a meeting. Instead talk about your weekend, what you have been watching on Netflix, where you found toilet paper. Anything other than work.

Let me know how you go. You can always schedule a coffee with me too! I love catching up with you.

Until next week,
H
