Most meetings or conversations have a preplanned outcome. It may be to explore an issue, to make a decision or to solve a problem.

But there is always a second subliminal purpose which we often overlook.

That purpose is to engage each other, improve relationships and foster a sense of community.

I have written more about this idea in my blook.

A big thanks to Peter Block for bringing this insight to my attention.
