I am trying to understand the above.  I found two points:

   (a) someone can participate meaningfully while being remote

   (b) someone needs to attend meetings to build relationships
       and move work forward the rest of the time

I could not understand the "this needs to stop".  Is it the extent to 
which someone needs to attend meetings (please see (b)) which needs to stop?
