Meetings can be very effective for building on ideas but not for working from scratch.

People should come prepared to brainstorming sessions to bounce ideas around, but it is only helpful if everyone brings a few ideas or pitches. Otherwise, people sit in awkward silence.

Internal interaction in many such groups can be collaborative, task-oriented or just a broad focus on the primary goal.

  • Not everything that was done in the office is effective or even advisable in a remote setting where everyone is at home juggling work and personal stuff.

  • We need to adapt and fine-tune our interactions to facilitate a thriving relationship with our peers and bosses.

  2. Set-Up: Anticipate a scenario where the project is over and was a disaster.
