We’re conflicted. Which is better in the workplace?
Going out for Coffee or playing Ping Pong?
Intender owes a lot to both Coffee & Ping Pong.
We discovered some of our smartest & brightest at Coffee Shops.
These people already demonstrated one of the hardest skills in Agencyland – how to start and hold a conversation.
Though, the fact is, Coffee dehydrates you and often makes you jittery.
Ping Pong has brought our team together and produced clarity & camaraderie.
The increased circulation helps people refresh, socialise and suspend their agenda, which helps us ideate better strategies thanks to the passive idle time generated by Ping Pong games.
Ping Pong games have become a must prior to any strategic session or difficult meeting.
In comparison, Coffee meetings can often have the reverse effect.
Passive stimulation typically produces ‘more of the same’ thinking rather than fresh thinking.
How are you encouraging free thinking within your team? Which is more valuable to you, team coffee or team Ping Pong?
Both have their benefits, but ping pong may be better in the workplace because it can help employees take mini-breaks from work and relieve stress.
