This session responds to the call for action that has been swelling among us. One comment in the November Survey says it all – “Make the implicit explicit in shifting power dynamics, systems, and Ways of Doing Things”. 

The December meeting surged with the feeling that NOW is the time to make a difference. Those present agreed that the Political Pod should embrace the perspective that coaches have the potential to support leaders in ‘transforming the rules of the game itself’ (Einzig, Ecological and Climate Conscious Coaching p13).

We agreed to start small with two projects that broadly cover many of the themes mentioned in the Survey:

·       Creating a Playbook for coaching leaders in how to transform the rules of the game itself.

·       Creating a model for mentoring/coaching/ supporting youth as political activists

The purpose of the January meeting is to explore how the Political Pod can become a vehicle for action with tangible outcomes that transform the rules.

Lydia Stevens and Samia Shehadeh will facilitate this opportunity for members to become a part of our exciting new direction.

·       How will the Political Pod become a vehicle for active change?

·       How can we collectively create the vision for each of these projects?

·       What other exciting ideas will you bring for future projects?

·       What will you commit to in 2023?

Bring your ideas, energy, and willingness to make a difference to the meeting on January 12th.

                                           Be part of the change you want to see.
