Opening Chit Chat Activity

Opening chit chat is an activity that should give the team some time to relax, socialize a bit, and get used to talking to each other on a virtual platform. This one kind of goes without saying, but you may not realize how valuable it is!

At the beginning of your virtual meetings, allow for some natural chitchat to allow team members to get to know each other better and catch up with one another. Try video conferencing with the camera on, if possible, for an even more personal experience.

This little bit of time can reveal who has kids, who does what interests on the weekends, who loves to cook, and more. If you are really slick, you can even plant some questions in there to spark conversation, without anyone knowing what you are doing such as: “What did you all do this weekend?” or “I had the best pasta for lunch, anyone else have anything homemade today?”

This is a time for everyone to catch up and get to know each other. This isn’t a structured activity, but it does give the team some time to relax, get more comfortable with each other, and ask how everyone’s lives are going.

Simply chitchatting is a great way to naturally bond and get to know each other more!
