Erin commented on Buddy Up!

Such a good idea! This makes me think about my own partnerships and the role they play in my life. Generally, I would say that productive partnerships take 3 forms for me:

1. I'm being coached 2. I'm coaching 3. We're learning together

I'm oversimplifying a bit here because point #3 is always a factor for me if I'm labeling a partnership as "productive."

This is also making me think more about my own intentionality when it comes to cultivating rituals and routines. For example, right now I am trying to develop habits around systematically tracking my thinking. As a result, I find myself asking friends and colleagues about systems which they use and have generated ideas around systems I COULD use rather than systematically testing strategies. By cultivating a system which helps me track my thinking and build upon previous conversations and ideas, I would also - conveniently - be working to create a culture of innovation. I think there is a link between innovation and communication. One part of innovation is being able to communicate the story behind (or the progression of) ideas. Without a record of both artifacts and reflection or personal commentary, that story becomes harder for me to tell, and often my ideas become lost.

Given that, I'll ask: Guild teachers, is anyone interested in buddying with me to flesh out the rituals and routines around the tracking of thinking?
