A recent twitt cued a thought.
whenever people ask me to meet them and don’t tell me why, I spend the next hours until the meeting stressing that I’m somehow in trouble despite being an adult

Don't ask your staff for a meeting without giving an indication of what it is about.
"Hey, I need to see you" can be very anxiety provoking.
"Come see me about the upcoming meeting Abstracts deadline" is not that hard to do.
"We need to talk about the way we're doing this experiment" is duck soup.
Try to remember this when summoning your techs or trainees.
