To lunch or not to virtual lunch, that’s the question!

To further collaboration, a leader is hosting more virtual team lunches. Apparently, people bond well over zoom and a sandwich.

This gets me thinking. Some friends prefer a solo lunch, reading a book, or listening to their favorite music. Some colleagues love to eat in silence, savoring every bite. Others love fun conversations.

This boss has good intentions, and maybe a quarterly get-together would work. I am not sure regular, forced lunches are a good idea.

A peer suggests we poll the team for their preferences. That should help us take the right action.

Here’s a thought. Why not let people enjoy their time the way they see fit? The best conversations aren’t forced. If you like, you can let your team know you are available for a virtual lunch. Let them decide if they want to take you on the offer?

What do you think?
