Priya Parker

Overview

Humans are social animals, yet today many of us feel deeply unsatisfied with our social lives. But what if the problem lies not in ourselves or the company present, but the old and inspired ways in which we're forced to interact?

Priya Parker is trained in conflict resolution and organizational design as well as being the founder of Thrive Labs, which helps activists, officials, executives, educators, and philanthropists create transformative gatherings. In this book, Parker distills her years of experience facilitating a wide range of gatherings into eight key principles all hosts should consider to create events that are meaningful and exciting.

Favorite Quote

"Gatherings crackle and flourish when real thought goes into them, when (often invisible) structure is baked into them, and when a host has the curiosity, willingness, and generosity of spirit to try."
