“Coffee and…”, your new meeting type for remote work

We’ve found a new meeting style at Keypath recently and it’s had some great feedback and value.

Struggling as a team to complete simple non-cognitive tasks? Simple task list things which we’ve all been asked to do seem really difficult to pick up and actually complete?

What we’ve found at Keypath is a new meeting style. “Coffee and [upload to server]”, “Coffee and [finish your monthly report]”.

Basically, book a Zoom meet, find some calm Spotify coffee shop music and play it on the meeting and ask people to spend 5 minutes at the start grabbing a coffee.

During the meet, you all sit there and just work through your own simple task list and chat. Ask questions, help each other or just get on with your list. Just relax and get that list done.

We’ve had great success with our meetings, spending an hour together getting through our COVID backlog of uploading items to our shared space. Getting through a data list of repeat work to action.
