In a „No Office” company like Nozbe, we don’t see each other all that much in person. That’s why a few years ago we started all-company meetings. We wanted to spend some quality time together, recharge batteries, get to know the people hidden behind their avatars… and basically connect on a different level. Now, that we did a few of these, I’d like to share a few tips on how to prepare and run a successful “company retreat.”
I guess we haven’t yet exactly explained why our company operates without the main office, where we all would sit in front of our laptops and get distracted regularly, and meet in cool conference rooms in order to talk through what could be discussed more efficiently within the task comments. Here is why:
“Trust is good, but control is better,” they say. Well, Michael says the opposite: control is overvalued, and trust is the key to a focused and effective remote team. Learn why!
If you think that working from home is impossible when there are children present, you’re wrong! You can organize your office and your home, even with children around, all under one roof – and that’s what the first episode of the 4th series is about!
In this episode, Michael examines the need for instant communication on teams and explains how it works in our company – or, to be precise, how we avoid it as much as possible.
As we do every six months, the entire Nozbe team will soon be meeting in-person for a few days. This time, our gathering will take place in Wrocław, a beautiful city in the South-West of Poland. As a result, our customer support may slow down at that time. However, we are going to be working hard every day of the reunion to make decisions that will form the future of Nozbe.
A prepared meeting is better, more effective and more enjoyable than other meetings. Even reunions! Today Michael shows how this works in our company.
Welcome back to the “Ask Michael” Show! This time, Michael discusses what it’s like to run a fully remote company.
After an active summer, we’re bringing back your favorite productivity series on YouTube :)
It’s been two months since we all met in person in Torun at our company gathering. We celebrated, worked, learned and chilled out. Now you can see what our reunions are like and find out how many different things we did.
On the first day Michael, our CEO, welcomed us, summarized the last six months of our work and progress and then… we could finally celebrate Nozbe’s 10th anniversary “live” - we had delicious cake and champagne.
