The most valuable relationships are not made of two people, they’re made of three. A third person will always stabilize and grow the relationship between the other two. It’s called a triad, and the more you create, the stronger your network.
I was introduced to S’Up, short for “standup”, between three randomly selected people at Artsy. Every time I met 3 of my colleagues, especially those who didn’t work on my team, I came out with incredible insights. We organized those meetings manually, then Ilya Kavalerov automated the process by creating a web app. Today I am launching S’Up for Slack Teams.
This bot passively generates fresh triads of company members to meet every week in a S’Up.
S’Up will then ask whether you met and keep track, a few days later.
The bot us written in Ruby, is open-source and is available at sup.playplay.io as a paid service to cover the costs of hosting. A small price to pay for increased communication in your growing organization!
