After years of working, meetings can start to follow one similar pattern over and over again. People lose interest and stop caring not just about the meeting but the people they’re working with as well. Online meetings and calls have added to the distance and can be a barrier to truly getting to know other people. The time to break the cycle is now. Do something unexpected, and you’ll find that your workplace will be both more productive and more enjoyable!
