Team Leadership Meeting

Share the Draft Narrative with leadership team

Share Goal statements and graphic

Share the year preview in developing our next 4 year plan


  • Be Fully Present: put 100% of your focus on the task at hand and sequence to tasks in a row, as opposed to splitting your focus on many tasks simultaneously. (put the device away:)
  • Adopt a beginner’s mindset: “In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, in the expert’s mind there are few.” Suzuki, Shunryu
  • Embrace Radical Collaboration: Lean in, take risks, get creative, embrace discomfort and have an awareness of your role in creating an engaging atmosphere.
  • Bring a Creative Commons Mindset: All of the work is all of our work. Through sharing, eliciting and providing feedback to each other and exhibiting what we’ve created our work will be exponentially better.
  • Make Learning Visible: “Making a process visible makes a practice reflect-able” ~ John Maeda.
