I’m a learner, mom, gramma and chocoholic. I live in Seattle, Washington, USA. I  founded Full Circle Associates in 1997 (I’m OLD!)  to help organizations connect through online and offline strategies.  At that time I was one of the pioneers in the practice of online facilitation.  Now I’m part of a broad network of practitioners.

    • The best place is on Dilo on this topic OK? And the main point here isn’t so much about “submitting a plan” but sharing it within our group to get feedback from your triad and other peers.

      One way to encourage others to give you feedback once you post your plans is to ask a specific question of them. OR comment on their plans and then invite them to look at yours. Reciprocity is valuable!
