A bold new approach to how we gather that will transform the ways we spend our time together at work, at home, in our communities, and even during quarantines like the one we're experiencing now.

In The Art of Gathering, Priya Parker argues that the gatherings in our lives are lackluster and unproductive--which they don't have to be. We rely too much on routine and the conventions of gatherings when we should focus on distinctiveness and the people involved. At a time when coming together is more important than ever, Parker sets forth a human-centered approach to gathering that will help everyone create meaningful, memorable experiences, large and small, for work and for play.

The Art of Gathering will forever alter the way you look at your next meeting (virtual or in-person), industry conference, dinner party, wedding, and backyard barbecue--and how you host and attend them.

Read more about The Art of Gathering or listen to Priya Parker's podcast, Together Apart, as she helps people navigate gatherings during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.
