Some years ago, I worked with someone I knew from our days at university together. Truthfully, I didn’t know him very well when he joined the team, but by the time I left, I considered him to be a close friend.

Our friendship developed over a series of lunches. We’d eat together, do a lot of talking, and call these sessions Magic Lunches. They were oftentimes like an intense self-development seminar packed into an hour.
