How might Miles River stay in alignment with each other and our work?
If Miles River meets for 30 minutes weekly, then this touchpoint will serve as generative and recentering space that energizes our work in a valuable way.
Have weekly 30 minute phone calls to discuss a pressing question for the week for 4 weeks with the Miles River team. Alison will determine what the pressing question is with input from Miles River and facilitate discussion.
Failure:More than one Miles River team member feels overall that these calls added less value than time spent on other Miles River work. Value Meter for 30 minute call

Score 1-5 (1 being lowest value, 5 being highest value)
Thirty minutes of team connection time held value for us.
Have a space for generative thinking on a regular basis may feel like a luxury.
Feeling pressed for time, we cut the remaining calls.
As we move into a new phase in the fall of 2107 and no longer have regular team calls, could we benefit from a bi-weekly 30 minute call?
