If someone is heads down working it might not be the best time to strike up a conversation about life with them. So what then, wait for the water cooler? In a space with a hundred people it would likely take a year to get to know everyone. An interesting more direct approach is to provide a friendly offering that doesn’t seem intrusive, while at the same time provides value. A perfect example of this is to make cookies and go around offering them to everyone in the space.
