Day: Monday Date: 9/11/17
Time slot: 0830-1045
Paul and Kathy (PR and KJ) participated in a meeting covering a wide range of topics discussing personal and group goals, qualities of life, and behaviors and systems.
A recognition that a prepared agenda would be helpful to bring to Monday morning check-in meetings to help keep on track with identified goals and projects and stay within time constraints; the prepared agenda would be based off followups from the previous Monday’s events, running project updates, and feedback on bWh related work activities. Another result is that PR recognizes the importance of development of conversation redirection skills.

- PBW info. has been recorded and will be sent to KJ for entry in bWh manual
- PR contacted Athens Hocking Recycling about coated milk cartons and gave KJ update. Issue is still being pursued.
KJ reviewed log entry.
Thank you for your prompt completion of the log entry and the utilization of the work day assignment template.
KJ has now read all log entries, copied and pasted info into separate documents and will create a document that outlines main points, assignments, etc.
A document will also be created that will be able to be utilized as a ‘check-in’ agenda to help the bWh team complete projects while always moving toward collective goals as identified and clarified.
Thank you for your hard work in all of this KJ, I am looking forward to the improvements in group process that come from it.
Thank you Paul.
Are there any particular group process improvements that you would like to manifest?
Communicative clarity was one we spoke about; will give thought to others.
BTW, I do not regard my interactions with you as hard work.
It is a pleasure to get to know you while deepening our understanding of each other and our team.
I believe the logs are helpful as we pursue continuous improvement processes.
My primary challenge involves time management; but I’m working on it. 🙂
Thank you for all you contribute to this team process.
I hope you find it helpful on your journey.
Really, it boils down to the communicative clarity.
I have some personal opportunities for improvement that I am working on that will hopefully help the process as well.
Best wishes to you as you explore your personal opportunities for improvement.
