After a week-long road trip with the Seattle Mariners (you may or may not know that I’m a reporter on the television broadcast) I’m looking forward to going to the office this week. There’s a lot to catch up on and people to catch up with.
When I’m on the road, I rely on email more than actual conversations with colleagues. It’s an effective form of communication when you’re in a different time zone and trying to keep everyone on the same page, but it’s also more tedious than being able to have a face-to-face conversation with the person sitting next to me.
Whether you travel for work or not, there is value in actually talking to your colleagues. You can get more out of a single conversation than an back-and-forth email exchange. Those conversations can start with one of these sports topics.
Have a conversation, build relationships and get business done in a more timely manner.
