Description

'I learned much from this book. Priya Parker has created both an art and a science to gathering in ways that can bring joy and fulfillment to any meeting.' - Deepak Chopra MD 'This is a must-read!' - Chris Anderson, owner and curator of TED'A fantastic book' - Forbes'Remarkable' - BustleWe spend our lives gathering - first in classrooms and then in meetings, weddings, conferences and away days.

Yet so many of us spend this time in underwhelming moments that fail to engage us, inspire us, or connect us.

We've all sat in meetings where people talk past each other or go through the motions and others which galvanize a team and remind everyone why they first took the job.

We've been to weddings that were deeply moving and others that were run-of-the-mill and simply faded away.

Why do some moments take off and others fizzle? What's the difference between the gatherings that inspire you and the ones that don't?

In The Art of Gathering, Priya Parker gets to the heart of these questions and reveals how to design a transformative gathering.

An expert on organizing successful gatherings whether in conference centres or her living room, Parker shows us how to create moving, magical, mind-changing experiences - even in spaces where we've come to expect little.
