Glad you liked this part of the book. You might want a “daily check in” with your MIL, to make sure there are no misunderstandings…:)
Not only did I use The Daily Check-in with her, but also some of the things I learned from Adaptive Schools. It was a successful visit 🙂
I so related to the boring ‘weekly staff meeting’ model that stated 1 hour was spent on the first agenda item; 45 minutes on the second one; the rest of the agenda was shelved until a later time. I recall working on a presentation and then, time running out before Hal and I could present. We had spent an inordinate amount of time and effort in preparation and it was disappointing not to be able to share our presentation. That experience showed me that maybe what we had to say was not valued. Other models for staff meetings and meetings in general give us insight into reasons that changes should be made in the format for our meetings. Bring it on!!! 🙂
