- Participants showed their natural abilities to listen, ask provocative questions, and be inclusive.
- Participants walked away understanding the importance of generative questions and got some good practice in surfacing them.
- Participants seemed to understand the importance of starting: simple steps for answering questions and synthesizing so that you build off previous conversations
- Design this time was more realistic in terms of timing. Still felt a bit tight to me, but started and ended on time with a comfortable pace.
- Participants created a solid framework for effective collaboration very quickly. They also got to some of the challenging questions quickly. For as much as people get stalled by this question, it’s amazing how simple it is to get to a clear, useful shared understanding.
- Participants still finding this useful!
- Smaller room this time, which was actually fine for our size group. Should have brought my wide angle camera lens. Next week, we move to the Hub.
- Be clear about hand signals for time so that I’m not interrupting. (This will probably change when there are more than two participants.)
- Person-on-the-street exercise is challenging for random people without the few minutes of reflective silence, which was designed in for participants. Both of our random people ended up taking that time for themselves.
- Next time, provide more instructions for framing the person-on-the-street exercise so that it’s less uncomfortable.
- Framework revision after the person-on-the-street exercise had less time than I would have liked.
