Roughly speaking, you have about 240 chances a year to eat lunch with your staff. That’s not a lot, so don’t squander a day of it!
There is incredible power when we share a meal together with others. During those times when we break bread with one another, we get to know more about that person than if we were simply in other staff meeting together. We let down our guard when we eat. We share our innovative ideas, our observations; we dish about our kids and what we did over the weekend; we laugh together and real relationship is built and developed. Soak that up!
Make sure you take the time to grab lunch with your staff during the week.
