When life was normal, those 5 minutes before and 5 minutes after the meeting were when relationships were formed. You had the opportunity to have fun and find out about your colleagues, even chat a little about your personal life, that is where relationships were formed and teammates bonded. You asked questions like: “When is the baby due?”, “How was your birthday weekend”, “Did you finish Game of Thrones yet?”, “How was the BBQ?”, “How was your son’s football game this weekend?”… I could go on, but you get the point.
