What happened to chatting?

‘Some might categorize watercooler interactions as wasted time. Others would argue they actually fuel the business with innovation.’
 
NoReasonMeeting_960x960.jpg

One of the biggest things we’ve noticed missing from the new workday is day to day chat. You might message your co-workers about specific projects or ask a few questions but it seems like people are forgetting to just catch-up, like you would at the office. 

 
Whether you’re holding back because you feel like you’re bothering coworkers when you drop them a non-work message, or can’t think of a conversation starter that doesn’t sound needy, there is just something to be said for putting the time in and getting on a call together to shoot the breeze. You never know what might come up organically, you could find out you’ve been solving the same problem as a co-worker, entirely by accident when chatting, or even spark a great new idea. Andrew Richdale took a look at the importance of a no-reason meeting, from a few different perspectives and we definitely agree, it’s well worth building in time for chatting. You can check out his Work in Progress piece here.
