I am proud of another Leadership Vancouver Island program coming to completion. I am honoured to be a part of the participants leadership journey since September. I am sharing one piece with you today; the community leadership project from the team I coached: Toolbox for Change: A Local Perspective on Indigenous Culture.
Toolbox for Change
They created a cultural kit toolbox of awareness containing literature to welcome you into the world of local Indigenous culture. Pick a book and take a journey through Indigenous eyes. In the artwork created for the Toolbox for Change boxes, each animal represents the attributes and tools needed within the community as a whole to affect change and offer tools necessary for education.
As their coach, I facilitated a team coaching session near the beginning of their project work together. We did a Tri Position Planning exercise where they got clear on the vision of what they wanted to create then aligned their vision with a strategic plan with clear next steps to bring it to fruition.
When I spoke with one of the team members at graduation, I asked to what extent the Tri Position Planning exercise influenced their project. It was pivotal. The power and empowerment of coaching; in a 1.5 hour team coaching session they envisioned their end product, what it would mean for them and their community sponsor and, came up with a plan to bring to their sponsor.
