You can’t replicate what you did before in the office.
Running into people in the hallway.
Chatting in the lunchroom.
Picking up someone who is stuck on a bug by buying them a coffee.
Having a random, yet project altering conversation about whatever it is you are working on that started off with a conversation about what font we are using.
All those things are not going to happen the way they used to.
They can still happen, but we need to find the different ways, the new ways to make them work.
We’re redrawing our neural pathways daily to work remotely, we can get that “same” feeling or maybe even better ones, but trying to replicate bumping into someone by scheduling a meeting – isn’t going to cut it.
