Lot of ground to cover!

In one office call I hosted few years ago there were, among others, a Newland, a Moreland and a Westmoreland. So, I started the call by saying “Team, Good afternoon. We have in this call xxx Newland, yyy Moreland, zzz Westmoreland. Yes, that’s a lot of ground to cover!”

Humor can serve as an icebreaker in office situations, to ease communication within the team as team members get to know each other. Also fits with my belief than fun and serious work can coexist. Life is too serious these days anyways, why not lighten it up a bit?
