Team Meeting Notes and Action Plan (May 2, 2012)

Proposed meeting schedule:

Please indicate if the proposed schedule will work for you, and if not, suggest alternative dates/times. Please note that Brenda is part-time (24 hours per week) and is typically available on Tues-Thursdays, with some flexibility to attend meetings on Mondays or Fridays, with advance planning and arrangements. Meetings can take place virtually via GoToMeeting or Skype, as well as face to face, if/when possible. It seems our final run through would be one time that it would be best for us to all be together.

Getting to Know You

Christie: March 17
Amber: February 27
Dianne: July 19
Brenda: March 23
Propose a name for our team (can be silly or serious – this is just for us)!
Christie: Carolina Girls
Dianne: Artsy Ladies
Compass Points: What is your preferred or pre-dominant compass point?
  • North – Acting – “Let’s do it;” Likes to act, try things, plunge in
  • South – Caring – likes to know that everyone’s feelings have been taken into consideration and that their voices have been heard before acting.
  • East – Speculating – likes to look at the big picture and the possibilities before acting.
  • West – Paying attention to detail – likes to know the who, what, when, where, and why before acting.
*Note that no one is only one “direction,” but you should choose one as your predominant direction.
Christie: East
Amber: North
Dianne: East
Brenda: East
Based on my compass point, what are the strengths of my style?
Christie: Able to see the “big picture,” visionary, interested in how all of the pieces fit together.
Amber: Pushes change; like to get the job done
Dianne: Visionary but also likes to pay attention to details.
Brenda: Focus on the big picture and how the various components fit together - I have a deep need to understand why things work the way they do
What are the limitations of my style?
Christie: Need time to process before jumping in, can be held back if I do not understand the big picture.
Amber: impatience for indecision
Dianne: Worries about how it will all fit together
Brenda: I need a lot of processing time to think things through. I need to sleep on ideas before making a decision.
What do people from other “directions” need to know about me so we can work together effectively?
Christie: Please allow me time to sort through the pieces and see how they all fit together as we plan. (I also have a lot of “South” in me!)
Amber: Sometimes I don't say much, not b/c I don't have anything to add, but b/c I dislike conflict
Dianne: If you tell me what I need to do it will get done. Don't expect me to guess at what I need to do for the team. I am good at making sure everyone has what they need.
Brenda: I get really nervous when decisions are made that don't consider the implications for how everything will fit together.
What do I value about the other three styles?
North – ability to plunge in and get the ball rolling!
South – valuing others’ feelings and opinions
West – making sure all the details are in place
East- detailed plans
South- Cooperation
West- details in place
We each are important and have something integral to add.
Dianne: We are a team. Each person has something valuable to contribute.
Brenda: As a team with people of different strengths, we will have all of the bases covered.
Other: Share something that the other members of the team may not know about you.
Christie: I used to play guitar and sing/record country-western music as a teenager/young adult AND I wanted to be a vet when I “grew up.”
Amber: I am extremely tender-hearted!
Dianne: I m very compassionate. I really care about other peoples feelings and happiness.
Brenda: I worked in the laundry room for Holland America/Westours in Alaska when I was an undergraduate. I can fold a fitted sheet the way it looks when it comes out of the package!
Optional: Provide any other comments you would like to share with the team.
Christie: I feel that we already have common respect for each other on our team and look forward to capitalizing on each member’s strengths and contributions.
Amber: Go Team!
Dianne: I am glad I get o go "back" to the ARTS team.
Brenda: I'm so glad we are back together again this year and getting an earlier start on everything.
