A few years ago, Nick Nappo joined his brother for trivia night at a local restaurant. Now, he’s a member of the team that won the World Tavern Trivia Championship held in Atlantic City! He has always “known a whole lot about nothing” so he’s excited to be able to put that to good use to help his team. It started hanging out with friends during the week but soon turned into a team competing across the country.
In this episode, Nick and I talk about the parallels between his team at work and his team that won the championship – “Everybody brings something unique to the team. If you harness those passions and talents, you can maximize your effectiveness as a team.” At first, he was reluctant to share his passion for trivia with his coworkers but realized that this is what makes him unique. Now he has a whiteboard hanging outside his cubicle where he writes tough trivia questions for his coworkers to try to answer, creating a fun way to start conversations.
