Group Member Huddles???

    Checking if folks in the eGroups get together for periodic "huddles" where hot topics Q&A, and other discussions can occur?  I find these VERY effective and was curious if this is something that people might do in the eGroup.

    If so...I'd be very interesting in attending...and if needed...glad to offer my Gotomeeting space if it will help. Thanks!

    Hi Frank,

    I'm not aware of this happening, but I would be interested.  Good idea!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I am constantly surprised how much sharing goes on during huddles, especially in settings where people know they are in a "safe zone" and can share questions or concerns that they may not feel comfortable sharing using public facing or group facing posting options.

    I figured there might be something like this going on just by the volume of offlist questions (received by email) I received over the past week.  Thanks again for posting.

    Thanks Dovie!  I am glad to share that many folks have been very nice in sharing with me Q&A and other "stuff"...and the good news...we are helping clear up a lot of confusion that some folks had based on conflicting information they received from various sources.

    As a result...I am learning just as much because this helps me understand some of the reasons people have these different viewpoints.

    You just reminded me of something I posted on HCCAnet that I'm going to post here as well about tracking disclosures.

    I have not participated or in fact heard about them.  We have huddles in our office but to be a part of professional huddles I think this would be very useful.  Really like the idea.

    Thanks Kathyrn.  I also believe huddles provide a good opportunity for collective sharing and learning.

    Too often I see attempts in holding, to use your phrase which I like..."professional huddles" that evolve into little more than blah, blah, blah...with people concluding after the huddle that it:

    - Added more confusion than clarification
    - Created more questions than answers
    - Provided very little if anything in the way of takeaways
    - Consisted of little more than echoing or repeating what is already known (such as endless sharing of cut and paste text snips)

    ...but when done effectively...many times attendees leave with a clearer sense or understanding of some of the hot topics and a better appreciation of how others are dealing with similar issues.

    Maybe this might be something to explore further...I am going to do a quick post to get some ideas and then share the results in the eGroup.  Let's see where this goes.
