In order to develop meaningful professional relationships across your organization, you need conversation starters that increase employee engagement. You might work with a small group of individuals on your sales, marketing, accounting, product, management, etc, team, but there are so many individuals in your organizations that will contribute to your daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly success. Over time you may stumble upon the right people, but to accelerate your growth you must seek out those relationships.
Getting the conversation started at work across teams and departments is always a challenge. It is even harder if a portion or all of your team is working remotely from home. Implementing conversation starters into your day-to-day is a great way to break the ice and start building more meaningful relationships. It is of course only one small aspect of your team culture but it is an important first step.
