How to gather

Meetings at work can be a fulfilling and productive experience provided we are mindful of a few things:

  1. It makes sense to meet — that is to say a) the problem that the team is meeting on is timely and b) meeting would be more productive than other modes of communication like e-mail and Slack.

Some meetings are great, others feel like a waste of time — you’ve likely experienced both flavors.

The quality of our gatherings at work doesn’t have to be serendipitous, though — meetings can be consistently valuable.

We just need to be intentional about how we meet.
