The Norma Effect

March 3, 2020 – March 31, 2020

How might we...

  • Governing Power: How might we shift governing power more towards justice?
    • How can we give more power to folks who have been historically marginalized?
    • How do we start living into democracy now at Washington CAN?
      • How might I model what I want my team to be feeling and doing, finding their own liberation in this fight for liberating our communities?

    Hypothesis

    If I model love for myself then my team will want to emulate it.

    Design

    Show love for myself through actions

    • Forward Stance and Tai Ji, 3x a week in morning.
    • Practice brushing with 3-5 people from my team this month.
    • In convo with other people around work life balance also own where I am in and invite them to support me.  
    • Fancy Facial

    Metrics

    Take note of reactions of staff. 

    Notice changes in myself and my leadership.

    • Success: 
      • Feeling less guilt around these practices/actions

    Learnings

    • Realizing why I feel like an imposter at times or not the right person for this role is because I feel like I have to be everything for everyone.  (eg. cheerleader, raise payroll, etc)
    • I have a perspective worthy of sharing. My past struggles make me a stronger leader and allow me to offer my experience to staff struggling with similar issues. 
    • My body knows what I need, eg. shifted from doing tai ji to volleyball workout.

    Decisions

    Keep practicing on a fractal scale: self, team, members, organization, community, world.

    Questions

    How am I reinforcing and practicing that show self love and self care towards liberation?
