Pub Talks – Summer Stand-up Meeting

LCC FLorence Center 3149 Oak Street, Florence

Join your fellow business professionals for a Stand-up Meeting to get focused, share what help you need, and support your peers who need help!   Usually they take around 15 minutes and are held standing up (surprise!). The idea is to keep the meeting short and to the point, and address the questions:   What did I accomplish in the last (day/week/month)? What am I focused on achieving next? What obstacles are impeding my progress? What help do I need from the group?   Stand-Up meetings are a popular way for teams to return their attention to focused goals and clear and specific action steps to reach those goals, as well as an effective way to give and receive help/mentorship, and identify solutions to potential roadblocks ahead.   Mix and mingle from 5-5:30, Sink-Your-Teeth into workshop starts at 5:30pm. Thursday, July 26th 5-7PM Lane Community College 3149 Oak Street   […]
