Ten leaders from seven institutions attended the first of three Twilight Training sessions following Two-Day Training 6-7.10.17.
The aim was to develop power analyses for each of the main issues prioritised at Leaders Forum on 14.11.17 – Homelessness & Housing, Mental Health & Isolation, Young Voices and Life Skills.
The overall impact on trainees, according to their before/after ratings, was:
- 100% increase in ‘My awareness of tools for building relational power’
- 95% increase in ‘My confidence in my community leadership’
- 30% increase in ‘My motivation to make positive change in my community’.
“Lots of information was covered in a short space of time,” said trainee Caro Marshall, of St. Augustine’s Catholic Church, “and some real work was done that wouldn’t have been otherwise achieved.”
“The session was good,” said Lawrence Morgan of Transition MK. “I like the fact more of an interaction type of training. the scale of power and influence is very useful.”
“(The training had) lots of different tools and ideas that can be of great value,” said Jean-Louis Bretton, attending his first Citizens:mk training session.
Plans were made for 121s with key individuals who might provide powerful testimony and help to create SMART campaign goals ready for presentation to Delegates Assembly on 5.2.18.
The first meeting for campaign teams will be held on Tuesday 12th December, 5-7pm, at Jury’s Inn.
