Walking meetings

From Where I Work: I’ll Take Walking 1:1s Over Office Meetings Any Day by LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner:

I started doing walking meetings early last year at the suggestion of a colleague who used them as a means to reduce meeting room scheduling issues while getting some exercise at the same time.

LI: Why did you set up your space this way?
Got tired of sitting indoors all day.

LI: How does your view impact the way you work?
It’s energizing to get outside for a 30 minute walk a few times a day. In addition to the obvious fitness benefits, this meeting format essentially eliminates distractions, so I find it to be a much more productive way to spend time.

Notes:
(1) Walking meetings are one of Bill Tranchard’s three ways to manage your energy better
(2) Walking meetings are consistent with the principle that the optimal number of people for a meeting is two.
