Office Hour: Mondays 9-10pm CET

snoopyWhile I was on Sabbatical and getting bored, a friend suggested having “Office Hours”. He told me that a friend of his has “Office Hours” one evening per week as a group video chat. People can join to discuss stuff in her $areaOfExpertise.

With a few months delay I want to try out having an Office Hour, too. It’ll be on Mondays and January 2014 will be my trial period, starting on:

Monday, January 6th, 2014 – 9-10pm CET
Will repeat every Monday at least up until January 27th

Join this Google Hangout: <URL will be here when the hangouts on>

(What’s 9pm in Dรผsseldorf / Berlin / Vienna in your time zone?)

Join the hang out if you’d like someone to

  • brainstorm
  • discuss agile and human topics with
  • walk through an idea
  • talk about retrospectives
  • test a UI
  • edit your texts
  • suggest something for any of my projects (Retr-O-Mat, Wall-Skills.com, …)
  • whatever else you can think of

If I hang out alone, I’ll stop after January 27th. If we have fruitful discussions, I’ll continue ๐Ÿ™‚

See you there!?!

Update: There were more people connecting who randomly click hangouts on Twitter than readers of this blog, so I do regular office hours. But I’m open to have a hangout specifically for you, if I can support you in any of the above things. Just mail me or ping me on Twitter ๐Ÿ™‚

    Stuck in meetings this afternoon… ๐Ÿ™

    I’m dying to pick your brain about Retrospective ideas for distributed teams. Hope to catch up next week!

      As the office hour is a pretty arbitrary time, I’d be happy to “hang out” with you at any time that’s good for you (given that I’m awake and at home).

      Disclaimer: I’ve never lead a distributed retrospective. I’ve always had the luxury of co-located teams ๐Ÿ™‚ However, I do have a good grasp of the activities in Retr-O-Mat and which of those can be adapted to work remotely.
