Our monthly Mastermind meeting has been going on since last spring and has become a rich environment for sharing professional experiences and challenges. Due to Covid-19, instead of in-person, our meeting on March 19 was done via Zoom and went very well.
With our new normal, for the foreseeable future, these meetings will now be held online. They'll be called "Mind Share" not "Mastermind." No pre-existing expertise required - come and share your mind! We'll meet twice a month.
At our April 2 meeting, we shared some insights from our own experiences with ZOOM as a platform and then Roger Courville shared with us a crucial process for translating things we do in face-to-face meetings into on-line format. He emphasized making sure you choose the appropriate on-line platform to accomplish your desired outcomes, rather than becoming wedded to one platform. Twenty-two people attended.
NOTE: An C@W_Online-Collaboration-Tools_4-2020 is available in PDF format to those who registered for the April 2 Mind Share. Compiled by Community At Work, a facilitation training and consulting group in San Francisco, it organizes a large group of on-line tools into categories by type of process needed, and annotates each with what it does well and what it costs.
At our next meeting on April 16, we will have our check-in (perhaps using Roger’s Analyze/Map/Discover approach—anyone volunteer want to try this translation to our ZOOM platform?) and an open forum discussion of a thread or two emerging from the check in.
