An Insider's view of GutCheck

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

We have a "no door" policy. There are no offices, so I and others can be accessible. On a proactive basis, I spend a lot of non-meeting time in the break room, so I can have a better sense of how things are going, and I can have spontaneous conversations with my colleagues. AMA sessions along with ad hoc 1 on 1s are a big part of our culture.
