Fun Tip #24: Allow employees to teach colleagues new non-work related skills
This is actually one of the best ideas you can implement, so whip out your notepad and take note. Every person is talented in his or her own way. So, why not have a system in place that encourages one employee to each other employees a specific non-work related skill or a hobby once a week?
It could be something as inconsequential as poker, or an important life skill like cooking a dish, or something for leisure, like playing a musical instrument, or a dancing technique like salsa.
The benefits of this are twofold. The teacher of the skill feels empowered and appreciated, while it’s a great opportunity for everyone else in the office to add a new feather to their hat.
