Framing Day 3's activities - Leadership and Co-creation exercise
Groups of 6 people learned about leadership and co-creation as they sought to build a beautiful structure from ropes they had been instructed to hold without letting go.
After the exercise, groups were asked to reflect on their answers to two questions, "What did you learn about leadership?" and "What did you learn about co-creation?" Their responses are below..
What did you learn about leadership?
What did you learn about co-creation?
SUMMARY OF THE DAY
We began the day with a Framing session on Leaderhip and Co-Creation led by Wendy then the Meta Harvest team gave a summary of the learning from Day 2, using music, drama and even some dance to illustrate the Groan Zone and the Chaordic space. We were introduced to the 8 Breaths process; Toke and Fiona then framed the process of designing for wiser action and 9 projects were introduced by their callers. Next we formed work groups and set to work putting into practice what we had learned about Participatory Leadership so far in the co-design stage of the project.
After lunch Mark introduced us to a peer coaching session followed
by a time for reflection and learning for callers and other group members. To complete the Design for wiser action section of the programme, the original groups regathered, integrated and harvested the wisdom relating to each project.
Toke and Fiona led us into the closing stages of the course with a Gratitute Circle and Gordon closed the proceedings with thanks to the Hosting team and all participants. It was hard to leave!
