We hosted another one of our Coffee Collaboration Zoom calls last week. We’ve been holding these since the beginning of Covid-19 to connect with our team in a positive new way. I am always delighted to see everyone join these forums. We begin the call with a coffee, toast then a quick way to break the ice. We then head into smaller breakout sessions with our peers to discuss specific topics. At Vernon, we’ve found this to be a great way to communicate and “buddy” up with our peers. We’re finding ways to share ideas, propose solutions to challenges, and balance workloads in these unusual times. If you’re not with Vernon, reach out to your local association or directly to PPAI to see what events they’re holding and take advantage of our incredible network.
I remain inspired by what I am experiencing on these calls. No one could have predicted how advantageous and effective collaboration could be in a time when many we ready to declare defeat and wait for normalcy to return.
Success most often requires teamwork – in an unexpected blow to in-person collaboration, we’ve found a way to succeed together in the Information Age.
