Unity. In 30 Minutes or Less.
As the result of an intensive study, researcher recently discovered that engaging in one simple process caused "individuals to collaborate closely, reach compromises, and display empathy" - without coaching, without prompting, and in a completely organic way. The process: ordering pizza.
Just the Beginning
Research like this, from eminent and reliable sources, provides a springboard for results in your own organization. How can you implement these findings and use them to create enhanced results, more engaged employees, a healthier bottom line?
- Requiring your people to work until at least 9:00pm several times a week - giving them the chance to order food together. As a team.
- Throwing them a curveball: tell them Tony's, their favorite pizza place, is closed. How will they deal with this obstalce? Will they overcome? Watch them - they will surprise you at how quickly they adapt.
- Giving them your corporate card and telling them it's on you. What better way to build relationships and foster team spirit?
The truth is that we cannot ignore any strategy that brings our people together. If it's pizza, it's pizza. Eat up.
