Working remotely has many advantages over traditional “office mode”. One of them is the way we truly can’t wait to meet in person at the company reunions. Watch this short video showing how Nozbe team spent time during the last get-together in Cracow.
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 Kraków, probably the most famous tourist destination in 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.
See, how the Nozbe team uses modern technologies to communicate better and get more done.
During the latest Nozbe Reunion, as usually, we spent a couple of hours sharing our personal productivity tips and insights that we’ve gathered since the last meeting. We listed many fantastic ideas and time savers! Some of them are particularly worthy of sharing with a wider audience! I think you might find them life-changing.
We have so many tools for collaboration in our team that e-mail is useless. We haven’t used it for collaboration in years. How do we share information with colleagues, then? Watch the new episode of “Ask Michael” to find out!
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!
Exactly 11 years ago today a young aspiring entrepreneur/programmer from a rented apartment in Warsaw, the capital of a country in the Central Europe called Poland, launched a productivity Web 2.0 application inspired by David Allen’s book “Getting Things Done”. That was me, and when I started Nozbe I never even dared to dream that 11 years later I’d be running this amazing company with Nozbe apps for all the major platforms with 0.5M people from all over the world using it… Happy Birthday Nozbe! You just turned 11 and as your founder I’m writing this post to give everyone a little more detail of where we came from and where we’re going in the coming months and years. Here goes:
