I had a meeting get cancelled and some time open up early yesterday.  

One of the guys in my team suggested we go for a coffee instead.  It was the best thing we could’ve done!  

Half an hour later, after a skinny cap and a good chat, Ellen said to me: ‘we haven’t done this in ages’.  And she was right.  

I had been on leave, added new people to our team, ‘gotten busy’ and forgotten to have a casual coffee every week or two.  It took a cancelled meeting and a chance cuppa for me to realise that we’d both missed it!  I won’t be making that mistake again..

A casual cup of coffee with your team.  Important.
