The Delegate-Plan module introduces the foundational elements of planning group activities, making and delegating assignments, and communicating for action. Using these tools helps clarify and encourage accountability.
Remember that when you add or lose a member of your group, you have a new group. Embrace the new talents and insights that have come into your group and foster a welcoming space in which all can feel equally heard and valued as they make choices about how to contribute and participate.
Set expectations with advocates. Set individual and group goals to plan and achieve great outcomes. Ask your Regional Coordinator about the yearly roadmapping (planning) in which groups engage.
Match assignments to readiness of advocates. Vary advocate assignments over time to develop transferable skills and maintain interest and challenge and to build bench strength.
Intentionally make or change assignments to build depth in group and progress advocate skills.
Fellow group leaders get as much out of your participation and insights as you do theirs. Utilize the group leader meetings to glean information, ask questions, coach each other, and offer support and camaraderie.
The top of the year is often a time of year for fresh calendars, fresh ideas, and fresh resolve. Use this energy to enrich your start-of-the-year plans. Watch for the annual planning guide to be shared.
