Hi all –
When Drift started working from home, I shared my thoughts on meetings with the team (I hate them) and how to hold a successful one if you absolutely must.
Now three months later, it seems like we’re slipping into old habits. I get that since we’re working remotely, we’re not able to quickly walk over to a co-worker’s desk or catch them in the hall. But I guarantee that many of the meetings being scheduled aren’t necessary. We have so many other forms of asynchronous communication (Drift Video!) that can be used in place of a meeting.
You can read more on my thoughts about meetings here, but I want to call out two points in particular:
There’s no doubt in my mind that people are feeling overwhelmed by meetings and video calls. So we all need to work harder than ever to make sure we’re getting what we need to get done without adding unnecessary meetings on top of it all.
How are you using asynchronous communication to keep in touch with your team and avoid needless meetings while remote?
