Speed dating for business! Developing and nurturing working relationships with colleagues is just as important as the relationships we have in our personal lives. We need to invest time in really getting to know who we work with, this develops trust, strengthens our relationships and improves collaboration.

How do we find out more about people in our team when we have never met them face-to-face? Why not try and put some time aside in virtual meetings for a round or two of speed dating! It is pacy and fun! This could also be taken outdoors, on a virtual walk, which can also prompt great questions and discussion.

When did you last propose a ‘guided socialising session’ for your team and what was the feedback?
