You don’t always have to sit in a conference room when you meet with co-workers: Take a walk instead.
Before or after lunch are the ideal times of day for these meetings. But before you lace up your sneakers, consider these three steps:
1. Tell co-workers in advance so they can bring proper attire. Avoid telling them the day of the meeting.
2. Map your route to allow enough time to cover all your topics.
3. Designate one person to send out a brief recap after the walk. Walking meetings are not the place for pen and paper.
