, we auto-calculated everyone’s flow time. As a reminder, we found that across the team, we have
flow time, and you (
In this page, we’re going to identify our flow disruptors. This is simply defined as any meeting where the time before or after is less than our flow time threshold of
hours. It’s a simple idea: if we move or cancel those meetings, we’ll create more flow!
Step 1: Identify individual flow disruptors.
We’ll start by identifying the events that disrupt your individual flow. The calendar and table below show all your meetings with the flow disruptors colored in red. Are there changes you can make to find more flow time?
Step 2: Identify flow disruptors in your Meeting OS.
Building flow time into your Meeting OS makes it easier for individuals to find flow time on their own calendars. Similar to above, the calendar and table below show all the meetings in your Meeting OS with the flow disruptors colored in red. For this step, imagine that the team’s Meeting OS is the only calendar. Are there natural flow disruptors here as well?
Note: This assumes the work hours of your Meeting OS are between
Step 3: Take action → Brainstorm ideas to find flow.
Reflecting on your flow disruptors, what can we do about them? For instance, are there meetings we can move to create flow time? Or perhaps the inverse - can we collectively protect blocks of time (maybe even a whole day?) to preserve flow time? Add and vote on ideas to find more flow time. Then, discuss as a team.
