How do you describe the importance of a company All-Hands/Ask-Me-Anything meeting?
You could say that:
- It needs to be done regularly to maintain morale
- It gives an important sense-check of what the employee concerns are
- While such meetings may not give direct results, it is important for overall health of the organisation's culture.
A good analogy is one that can build multiple connections between the main topic and the analogy... and Harish demonstrates that with his tweet.
