Earlier this year I joined a group of colleagues in listening to a highly informed speaker on a topic of the utmost relevance to myself and my organization. I was so excited I could barely sit still—energized by all of the connections to my work, the possible impacts to the daily life of my team and our clients. My wheels were turning, creative juices flowing; I couldn’t wait to discuss what I had heard with my colleagues. And then…the presentation ended, and I along with everyone in the audience got up, exited the auditorium, and rushed to our next meeting. That moment, the one so ripe with opportunity, was lost. My colleagues and I had missed the chance to process the experience and possibly apply our insights while the ideas were fresh and the connections so alive.
