Coach Dickson’s Tips: Keep a Huddle Schedule!

Dr. Dickson

Dr. Dickson

News & Views features Idea System coaching tips from President and CEO Eric Dickson, MD: One of the most important parts of having a successful Idea System is to maintain a regular huddle schedule. The huddle should become a routine and should happen regardless of who is in attendance. The goal is to provide weekly updates on improvements in progress and discuss, as a team, any new problems that have been identified. If you’re having trouble finding a standard time, ask your team what would work best for everyone. Some teams have multiple huddles each week to allow as many people to attend as possible!
