In the wake of Yahoo's new rule banning telework, a lot of people are talking about whether or not you really are more productive — or at least more creative — when you're surrounded by your coworkers and managers. Since it's often CEOs that make those decisions for everyone, we're wondering: Have you ever met or spoken with your CEO? Have you had a conversation with the top dog that wasn't a passing courtesy?

We're talking about conversations beyond a handshake at the end of a meeting or a company presentation where your CEO was in front of a crowd, of course. If you did meet and have a good chat, how did it go? Did he or she impart any wisdom to you or ask you for your perspective on things? Did you feel like you benefited from the experience, or do you think the CEO was just politely making the rounds? Share your thoughts and experiences in the comments below.
