Let’s have our meeting at Starbucks, Coffee Company, Mogador or Seattle’s Best. Yes, a coffee shop where they serve good coffee or tea in a vibrant environment.
Why meet there? Simple: It’s a place outside your ‘normal’ office environment, away from hidden or unhidden organizational culture at work.
Outside is good for fresh new ideas and insights or in depth talks and meetings. A different taste of coffee, a different snack and different colors, smells, sounds, atmosphere and size and arrangement of tables, corners, chairs. All of this influences us. And it works to get out of the regular routine that might give us a narrowed perspective.
