Why Face-to-Face meetings will never go out of style

face to face meetings 300x221 Why Face to Face meetings will never go out of styleMany of our customers are geographically dispersed and rely on Skype, conference calls and virtual meetings to stay connected. We have been told that our brand of training and team building may soon be replaced by headsets and videoconferencing—that companies can’t afford to bring their far-flung teams together to meet—that some consider spending time together to be a waste of time.

We believe the opposite and see the power of the f2f on a daily basis.

Memorable shared experience: An adventure, a fun outing or a good laugh all accelerate bonding and build community.

Subtle connectors: In work as well as personal relationships the opportunity to ask a question while looking someone in the eye helps to seal the deal, confirm integrity and reach tacit agreement.

Make it happen now: Gather a group together in a room for a day or two (or head out on a hike and walk side by side) and have the discussions that need to happen, make decisions and move ahead.
