Three intensive 3-day workshops accompanied by regular group calls between sessions. Attendance at all three sessions is required. The workshop will be in English.
seSSION 1: BEING CHANGE
Who are we as leaders working to address climate change and sustainability challenges? What are our shared values? What is it inside us that motivates us and keeps us committed to our work in the face of setbacks and negative news? Who do we need to be to create the change we want to see? How do we listen deeply for shared values and opportunities to leverage change? How do we become systems leaders empowered with the tools we need to create change? How do we begin to look at our work through the three components of sustainable change (solving problems, shifting systems and activating potential)?
11 - 13 February
SESSION 2: DESIGNING CHANGE
How do we design our projects and align grants and strategic plans to simultaneously solve problems, shift systems and activate our own and our community’s potential for change? How do we see and address the larger systems inherent in the problems we are trying to solve? How do we plan differently to create the impact we want to see? What are the different stages of leadership development and how do they inform our collaborative efforts? How do we talk about the change we want to create and enroll others in creating this change? How do we connect events, programs and other activities to measurable outcomes and impact?
24 - 26 March
SESSION 3: LEADING CHANGE
How do we run meetings differently and more effectively to move the agenda forward? How do we empower others to lead the change they wish to see? How do we fundraise more effectively and sustainably? How do we identify and use leverage points to create scalable systemic change? How do we hold multiple perspectives and transcend divisiveness while adhering to universal values? How do we effectively track and measure the change we are creating through our projects over time? How do we align multiple projects and initiatives toward a unified goal?
28 - 30 April
In addition to the 3 x 3-day workshops, each participant will be assigned to a learning group together with two other participants. One 45-minute call per week is expected between sessions to activate what is learned and apply it in a practical way (see Applying the Learning in the About section). Comprehensive instructions will be provided in the program to guide these calls and external coaching support will be provided by the facilitators.
