Take a Walk Together For most of us, walking is the most familiar and intuitive form of movement we know. We do it every day with hardly a conscious thought. Walking may be the first movement-based experience of your collaboration. Walking through a site that’s relevant to your collaboration may spark new observations and insights. Walking down a city street may simply offer a breath of fresh air and break through the cobwebs. The experience of thinking and talking while walking is markedly different from the experience of a seated dialogue – that’s why a whole branch of classical philosophy was named after a group of roving thinkers.
