The following notes were summarized by Charles Holmes.
Charles introduced the group to the work of Peter Block and the 6 conversations of accountability and commitment. Participants had a chance to reflect and practice with this work.
Other content included the Ladder of Inference and dialogue on listening skills.
Reflections on Work in the Community:
In small groups, participants reflected on collaborative efforts that have worked and identified contributing factors.
It was acknowledged that there are many examples of effective collaboration.
Factors that contribute to effective collaboration were posted on flip charts and shared
Commitments and Next Steps:
A number of commitments to next steps were made including:
- Sharing of efforts related to Social Services in the community. A number of people (including Elina & Steph, et. al.) agreed to meet to identify how these could be more effectively integrated.
- Creation of a hub that integrates "back end" services was discussed but no commitment made.
- Of all the actions identified it was clear that the most important to the group is the creation of a Community Team, with a coordinator. The challenge; however, is that there is no funding. It was agreed that Caleb Moss would take the lead in creating a recommendation to be presented to CBT.
