Sports Conversation Starters for Your Workweek

conversation starters Feb 19, 2024

Interviews in Spring Training are the norm this time of year and essentially the questions I formulate are a set of conversation starters. It’s questions like:

  • What’s the meal you know you can make without screwing it up?
  • What’s the nickname your teammates and coaches gave you in Little League?

Nearly every answer comes with a story and I’m frequently caught off guard by unexpected responses. While I never know what I’m going to get, it is my reminder to not make assumptions.

It’s the same reminder I’m going to offer you this week. Don’t assume women don’t like sports or that all men love sports. Don’t assume you can predict your colleagues’ answers. Don’t assume you understand where someone is coming from.

Keep an open mind and enjoy the twists and turns small talk can bring. These sports topics can help you get the conversation going.
