This week’s story is from Michael in Santa Clara, who shares how he approached and invited a coworker to eat lunch together, a gesture that gradually built rapport with his team at work.
“Personally, I’m more of an introvert, so I know how it feels to be with a group of people yet at the same time feel excluded or left out. At work, we usually have team lunches once a week. One time, I went with some of my fellow coworkers but saw someone else standing alone away from the group. I approached them and we chatted over lunch, and they got to know me and my coworkers better. Across various instances of doing this, I’ve noticed that our team has been more lively, and more people have been showing up to the office (work is still fully remote, so coming to the office is optional). Not sure if this has improved our team productivity at all, but creating a friendly work atmosphere is definitely something I feel proud and happy about.”
