Role-Playing for Team-Building
It was a party with a difference where about 25 of my Genesys colleagues and I had the opportunity to turn chef at a unique restaurant in San Francisco last night. It was an interesting game of role-playing for fun, relaxation, bonding and team-building!
For the first time in my life I got to put on an apron and try my hand at cooking. Well, not exactly, as I was just pretending to cook.
Spinach, Chicken, Stuffed Eggplant: I took on some minor tasks such as cutting spinach, seasoning chicken, grilling it and stuffing some veggies into sliced eggplant. “Is this the first time you are holding a knife, Joslin?” That was a poser from my manager (VP, Sales / Sales Operations), who went on to joke: “we cannot afford to have our writer chop his fingers off.”
The restaurant goes by the name, Hands on Gourmet. It sells no food items and we eat what we cook. A fun concept!
