I recently ran a poll on which time of the day is the best for meetings. Some time ago, I wrote a post about how certain times of the day may not work for your colleagues. You may not have thought about this, but one colleague needs to leave early to pick up his kids from school, and the other colleague gets anxious when a meeting involves food… Moral of the story is that you best ask your colleagues which restraints they have. If you are a supervisor, create a climate within your research group that allows your colleagues to speak up and tell you about the restraints they face regarding a meeting time.
Out of curiosity, I ran a poll – and the opinions are divided. The most popular time slot is in the early afternoon, but there is no clear winner. You can find the Storify about the poll below:
