As 2020 unfolded, the way we work together changed in fundamental ways. For many of us, it’s no longer possible to grab coffee with a coworker or gather with teammates in a conference room. Remote collaboration has become the new norm, requiring all of us to balance our personal lives with our work responsibilities. It’s become more important than ever to be thoughtful about how you maximize your time and stay productive.
This guide shares a number of lessons we’ve learned along the way. We reached out to Googlers who train others to run productive meetings—and have spent a lot of time thinking about their own transition to remote work—and asked them to share their best practices. Try one of their techniques next time you meet with your team.
