How do people feel about team rooms with the client in them? Sponsor is insisting, but I want to maintain boundaries.

I love getting up in my clients face. I’ll go sit next to them if I can. It’s not just the project-based interactions, but also the small talk, the chatter. You build much stronger relationships and get to know your client’s context. You walk in their shoes.

Flying someone out and putting them up in a hotel for several days just for them to hide in a team room is pointless.

I am totally fine with that. Actually it allows to build more closer bonds with a client when you spend whole day together

So many ways you can get out of this
- HR personnel issues
- Sharing sensitive information that not all levels should know about
- Team can’t come up with potential strategies because firm IP may be exposed
However, if they can provide meeting rooms that are convenient this does not apply

M3 - you are right at the end. Flying out to just sit in a room is pointless unless team members cannot work together in a virtual fashion.

Fly out for 2-3 days a week, 3 weeks out of the month and it is amazing how productive every one is.

I need to help her level up her written communication skills. Any suggestions on books, resources, strategies? She is learning by doing and takes feedback but I want more supports for her.
