Closed: Proposal - Leadership Program v2.0
I am closing this advice process. Everything discussed will be included in the work accordingly. I ll map out a timeline and send out the application form.
I would like to share my proposal for Kiez Burn Leadership Program v2.0. We had a great leadership program in 2019/2020 that Remy and I organized. Now, we (David & me) want to take it to the next level. There is a whole bunch of cool research behind it, a survey to understand our needs better and a tailored program to make it really meaningful an awesome.
Kiez Burn’s 2nd Leadership Program - Powerful Teams
During a 3 day offsite retreat (location: here) selected participants (based on application) will go through a Leadership program. The program is designed based on research from Amy Edmondson (psychological safety), we:work and insead. The program explores three core areas that any great team needs: Vision, Structure, Relationships.
The content of the program will be based on 3 core areas:
Setting our direction (purpose, mission and vision, etc.)
Clarifying roles and expectations of all guides & realizers and Korg, having the right governance in place, creating an inclusive meeting structure and culture, engaging guides & realizers and Korg in collating learnings & sharing feedback.
Building trust within guides & realizers and Korg (Psychological safety), support guides & realizers and Korg in addressing self-awareness, understanding each other, handling conflicts and how to give and receive feedback
Based on a survey we will learn what we as Kiez Burn are really good at and what we would benefit from focussing on. You find a survey example here.
We will invite all boardies, korgies, guides, realizer, camp leads and artists to participate in the survey.
The table below is to give you an example of what typical team outcomes can look like.
Based on the outcome of the survey we will design the content of the program really tailoring it to what Kiez Burn needs now :) To give you a better idea, this are workshops we could run during the program:
Finding our purpose/ our why
Our dream trip - where are we going?
Our mandate - how do we fit in with board, korg, guides and so on
What do we expect from each other? What are our roles?
Tools for effective meetings
Tools for effective decision making
Learn from the past prepare for the future
Working with virtual teams
Creating psychological safety
Trust and openness spiral
How to give feedback
…and many more <3
Research behind this program
Why do we want to do this?
Franzi is a professional in leadership development, coaching and consulting and believes this is her gift she wants to give to Kiez Burn
How we organize our teams, our work and everything that we do at and for Kiez Burn is at the core of what we do
We can’t detach they way of how we work from our principles and our philosophy as a community - we can’t dissociate our heart from our mind
We want to support our guides & realizers and Korgies in developing leadership capacities which truly nurture and allow for co-creation (and not dictatorship)
We aim to ease the pain that we feel on our journey as a constant changing organization
We want to enable our community to work decentralize in holistic roles/areas
We wish to take care of those who are most passionate about the community and prevent “leadership burnout”
We also acknowledge that to be truly successful as an organization we need to invest not only in this program but also into our organizational design, our tech infrastructure and into the enablement of our teams, still, this is a really good starting point
How do we select?
As we understand that true learning happens among the participants during the retreat (and not in the classroom) - we want to build a diverse learning group that truly pollinates and inspires each other
We select based on application data (motivation, Korgi, Realizer/Guide,, experience, background, diversity)
