While 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 Düsseldorf / Berlin / Vienna in your time zone?)
Join the hang out if you’d like someone to
- 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 🙂
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 🙂
I just saw this in my feedly and hope to catch tomorrow if things aren’t too crazy at the office!
Great, see you there (hopefully)!
Stuck in meetings this afternoon… 🙁
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 🙂 However, I do have a good grasp of the activities in Retr-O-Mat and which of those can be adapted to work remotely.
