Raise your hand if you love meetings! Sometimes they can breed productivity and sometimes you can’t wait for them to end. If you’re feeling like your brainstorm session is coming up short on ideas, try taking it for a walk! Yes, walking meetings are a thing (Steve Jobs does it), and can help stimulate ideas, positive communication, and problem-solving. Of course this doesn’t work for all types of meetings; sometimes you really need a computer or whiteboard, but try it for your weekly touch-base or conference call and watch things shake-up in a good way!
