The Art of Gathering…what does this really mean? To be honest, up until a few months ago I didn’t think too much about the art of gathering, or if it existed at all. People can simply just come together in a space and enjoy themselves, right? Wrong. While gatherings can certainly happen spontaneously and still be enjoyable, there is much more to a successful and meaningful gathering. And the work that you put in ahead of time certainly is worth it. How do we know this? Thanks to Priya Parker, a conflict-resolution mediator and gatherings consultant.
Priya is also the founder of Thrive Labs, where she helps activists, elected officials, corporate executives, educators, and philanthropists create transformative gatherings. She’s the author of The Art of Gathering and is truly transforming the thought and practice that goes into creating meaningful gatherings, something that we do every day of our lives. This episode is applicable to everybody, whether you love to host dinner parties, find yourself in frequent meetings at your office or are deep in the wedding season circuit. There’s something for everyone!
