Play • 58 min

In this episode, Damon sits down with Priya Parker, master facilitator, and author of The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why it Matters.


Priya provides listeners with a masterclass in the art of gathering. Here are some of the questions you might have about your work meetings: 


  • Have you wondered if your meetings were serving the right purpose? 
  • Have you questioned whether the right people are in the room? 
  • Do you worry that the way you gather at work is impacting someone’s ability to feel like they belong?


Don’t worry, these questions are being asked at every level of organizations around the world right now. Priya will lay the foundation for how to gather, why to gather and what we can do to make our gatherings more meaningful. 


Damon and Priya also analyze some famous examples of workplace culture in the form of Ted Lasso and Succession to learn what they can teach us about gathering.


By the end of this episode, you’ll also learn the difference between a conversation and a gathering and why you need to find the deepest need of your gatherings to truly create a meaningful experience.
