Helps understand when someone needs to take a break from the group - they may feel overwhelmed and need time away to process everything and regroup.
B Hamilton
35:50
that's one big lesson I learned my first year of management- lots of people need info ahead of time!

The stress of Covid is really making things challenging.
B Hamilton
43:11
The first thing I did when getting a new management team a few years back (3 of us) was watch a ted talk on authenticity. Then had a discussion. It opened a lot of doors for discussion. Then we did a few personality tests and compared and discussed our strengths and weaknesses and our styles, etc. Being proactive about this is so helpful.

Saul Hernandez
52:01
I've an ongoing struggle with claiming my space by allowing myself to be clear about by needs and boundaries. So maybe framing a question focused on self-allowance to bring that to the forefront of the conversation?
Saul Hernandez
52:09
Not sure how I would phrase it though.
Michelle Milliken
53:04
but sometimes people don't want to participate or be honest
Anita M Brown
53:47
thank you amelia
Gracie
55:14
I've found taking the word "you" out of a potentially difficult conversation helps the other person perceive it as more of your feelings and less like a personal attack against them
Virginia Sharp March
56:10
Excellent point, Gracie!
Saul Hernandez
56:22
Let me know when you figure that one out.
Lisa Coats
59:42
Thanks, Anne! This was really informative and insightful!

59:56
Excited to explore some of these topics.

59:58
Wonderful concepts. Techniques, insight to follow through and persist through process?
Anita M Brown
01:00:00
Anything that helps reverence humanity has to be a very good tool
Amanda Hartman McLellan
01:00:20
I love these types of tools, but I always put the caveat that they’re most useful for self-reflection. And I have to remind myself that a lot of people HATE these tests (especially when done as a work requirement)
Christopher Robinson
01:00:46
Nice work, Anne! Thanks. Very informative and beneficial! So, many takeaways! Great presentation.
Gracie
01:00:59
Same here Amanda, I love them but I think I'm the only one!

I took a PDP Works assessment yesterday. Very insightful.
Lisa Coats
01:01:34
But sometimes when people do them, even if they hate them, they find out something about themselves and their colleagues that is useful
Amy Harris Houk (she/her)
01:01:38
I see the benefit but I still don't like them
Alexia Riggs
01:01:55
The stand the test if you pardon the pun - that is why they are referred to and used often
Amanda Hartman McLellan
01:01:56
Good point Lisa!
B Hamilton
01:02:01
I'm big on personality tests, I also find them very interesting. I've learned that one of my staff members highly adverse to taking them, apparently she had a very negative experience in the past. Moving forward I would make certain thing optional or give a caveat that we are not trying to put people in a box.
Gracie
01:02:09
Has anyone done something like a fun ice breaker to help people feel comfortable?
Lisa Coats
01:02:10

As an icebreaker.

01:03:30
lots of people tell what they ate for breakfast

We do ice breakers every morning during a huddle. It has help our team grow closer.

Thank you
B Hamilton
01:05:03
We did a team builder with a scenario where you had to get off of mars (or something like that) and you had to pick certain tools to survive. So people broke into groups then reported back. This helps for people that don't like to do these things as they are in a group and not alone.
