President’s Message

Greetings

Hi everyone,

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, instead of in-person, our meeting on March 19 was done via Zoom. It went very well. We had a wonderful online exchange and covered a variety of topics, including what people are doing to cope with current challenges, how to facilitate a meeting with introverts and extroverts, how to use online technology to do what we would otherwise do in person, and how to stay connected in Covid-19 times. (Here’s an example.)

Based on input at the meeting, we decided on the following:

  • For the foreseeable future, these meetings will be held online.
  • They’ll be called “Mind Share” not “Mastermind.” No preexisting expertise required - come and share your mind.
  • To stay connected, we’ll meet twice a month.
  • Instead of our current 5:30-7:00 slot, Mind Share will be moved to “Happy Hour”: 4:00 to 5:30pm.

We have one scheduled agenda item for the next meeting: Interactive demonstration of how to use Zoom to connect with our clients in facilitation, presentation, training and coaching. In addition, we will have our standard check-in and open forum.

Our next meeting will be Thursday, April 2, 2020. Register here. There is no charge.

Stay safe!
