Why a Compassion Collaborative?
You’ve held Compassion Labs across your organisation and now you want to really embed a culture of care and compassion. You want to support your people to proactively build a strong positive culture that is focused on your organisational values.
You’re ready to build a Compassion Collaborative!
Who is it for?
A Collaborative is an online, facilitated environment to bring people together to support compassionate cultures and practices at work.
We bring the platform, the technology, a connection to a global compassion network and a creatively facilitated monthly meet-up.
Collaboratives are the next step after Compassion Labs. These are action-based groups. People experimenting with ideas to grow compassion at scale. All sorts of interesting things start with a collaborative.
How many people in a Lab?
Between 25—80 people make up a Collaborative. You can bring people from across your organisation or across your discipline. You can gather people across any community that you believe will benefit from working together to drive compassion in action.
Each Collaborative is different but the practice of compassion in action is at the heart of all we do.
We’ve gathered and supported Collaboratives across a jurisdiction and we’ve built them across a single service. Right now we’re experimenting with building a Collaborative for nurses and midwives.
All Collaboratives have these features in common:
- people who have a strong interest in building better culture;
- the support of a sponsor organisation or group;
- participants who are willing to turn ideas into action;
- a commitment to meet each month for 90 minutes;
- creative facilitation.
Compassion Collaboratives meet each month using a zoom based platform. Guest speakers are invited throughout the year to bring knowledge and ideas to the group.
The Collaborative will meet for 90 minutes every month on zoom for one year.
This is your Collaborative, so you will know the membership and will be collaborating on shared goals.
