As you go into a new week, some thoughts about meetings. Yeah, meetings.
Everybody seems to hate meetings, so why the hell do we have them? Either don’t have meetings, or do them properly, whether you’re the organiser or a participant

It’s not that one person who is remote. The whole team is remote. Treat inteactions that way.

I went to an agile discussion group meetup this evening, and I made a jira joke that didn’t go over very well. Tough crowd. 🤷♀️
Incidentally the same meetup where a prompt was "we are already agile, we don't need a scrum master", to which I wrote "we've already won a championship, we don't need our coach any more"

Have you tried the 6 hats technique for team conversations or retrospectives?
It channels people to think in different ways - problem finding, optimistic, fact based, etc.
I’ve made this pdf you can download and print to facilitate the session. Dropbox: goo.gl/v5pVJU
A typical retrospective using this technique might look like this:
1. Blue hat for 5 minutes to set the stage 2. White hat to collect all the facts, no opinions (10 minutes) 3. Yellow hat to look at the things that went well (10 minutes)

Because I’m ill at home, I’m going to dispense some wisdom. Don’t worry, it’ll be very wise.
100 things I’ve learned! 💯
I have no broadband, so there’s no risk of being distracted.
1. Whatever you do, try to do it with joy and purpose.
Don’t spend any energy from what you’re doing worrying about the other thing you chose not to do.
