Work hack #35: Chat Roulette

Especially in teams that work in separate locations, personal connections often fall by the wayside. This is where “Chat Roulette” comes into play: Every week, a chatbot randomly selects two colleagues and matches them for a half-hour online session during which they talk about anything except work topics. Instead, the focus should be on questions such as:

  • How are you?
  • What are you currently doing outside of work? 
  • Where and how do you live?
  • What excites or inspires you?
  • What is currently your biggest challenge?

Even book or recipe tips, a live handcraft tutorial, or a tour of your house are possible. In short: Anything that has nothing to do with work is fine!
