News & Views features Idea System coaching tips from President and CEO Eric Dickson, MD: Does your team’s idea huddle take longer than 15 minutes each week? Does your huddle discussion tend to go off topic? If your team is having trouble staying focused, here’s a great idea from the Nursing Professional Development Team! They improved their idea huddles by assigning  a team member to be a “shepherd” who keeps the group focused or recommends a small group meeting to discuss a task after the huddle. They also assign a “timekeeper” to work with the shepherd to keep the huddle on time and a “recorder” to write on the Idea Board. Find other spreadable ideas on the Idea System website!
