Catching up – on what exactly

A lot of meetings I get asked to are now called catch-ups, but they do have a clear aim for the person asking to catch up. That’s not a catch up, that’s a meeting with an agenda.

Sharing the aim allows forethought, preparation and prioritisation. Not sharing keeps my brain guessing, when it could be better focused.

It can be right to prioritise a mere chat without an outcome in mind, especially as we work remotely. If that’s not what you intend though, then be clear about it.

Time is precious, treat everyone’s as valuable.
