With the holiday approaching and me now writing about keeping our heads in the game, I walked into a very well-timed “un-meeting” this morning. The idea behind an “un-meeting” was first introduced to me in Daniel Pinks’s Drive. I have never started a day with so much laughter. Well, laughter that wasn’t coming from podcasts I listen to on my mind-numbing commute to work. In the un-meeting we played a few silly teambuilding games to embarrass ourselves and just generally bring our minds out of the grind. I was very pleased. It’s not often we get to celebrate silliness with each other. We see a lot of it in our classrooms, but, just once, the teachers got their recess.
