Making Work Meetings Count
If you’ve ever done an epic eye roll when staff meeting invites pop-up on your screen, we’ve got a secret weapon to making those encounters worth your time. Her name is Priya Parker, author of the book, “The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters.” Priya joins Liz and Rico today to tell us how to make everything from dinner parties to mundane office meetings (gasp) actually productive. And that includes embracing “good controversy.”
Then we’ll hear from listener Lauren, who wants Liz and Rico’s blessing to leave her job without another gig lined up. And listener Lynn, who needs advice on how to get out of a career slump.
Finally we’ll hear from listener Hannah who can’t get her colleagues to embrace all the tools our digital age has to offer. Email is not the only way, people!
As always, if you've got a burning workplace question and need some advice, don't hesitate to send us an email (that email, unsurprisingly, is also Safe@Wondery.com). You can also find us on Twitter, we’re @SafeFor Work. Don't forget to follow our sage hosts on Twitter, too; they're @SSLiz and @RicoGagliano. And if you want to check out Liz’s other show, Satellite Sisters, you can find it on Apple Podcasts or Art19.
