How might we...

  • Base Building: How might we improve our engagement with our members/base to build power?
    • How do we prepare existing leaders to take leadership in the diverse organization that we are trying to build?

Hypothesis

Creating a design team for the Community Train the Trainers Program and focusing on relationship building will increase shared ownership of it.

Design

DESIGN:

  • Ask leadership assembly people to join the Design Team for the Community Train the Trainers Program
  • Invite people into the development of this program. 
    • What does ask look like?  (how of invitations, given COVID life, email today could start it there and decide how to follow up and make it fun…video with kids….)

Metrics

GOAL | MEASURE

  • Have 2-5 conversations with leadership assembly resulting from ask.
  • Feel strengthened trust and relationships with 2-3 people in the leadership assembly. Know I have trust if we wrestle together versus “having conversations”.
    • Wrestling convos( Raising tensions )- sign of trust and bloom. (this is what we need of each other, have to show our bellies, can’t pretend it is all fine and we all have it figured out)
      • 1 as collective
      • 1 with Sabrina individually.
  • One member of the design team recruited someone else as trainer. (sign of ownership), investing in the role.
    • Sharing progress in slack along way.
  • Two organizers who would be good for Community Trainer program – decide on if including them on the  design team.
