Thriving Networks – 8 WK Course
September 8 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT
Starting September 14
OFFERED BY GREATER THAN THE SUM
Starting networks can be easy, but sustaining them is not.
With freelance and remote working on the rise globally, as well as new types of movements and purpose networks popping up all over the globe, our network structures and mindsets are in need of maturing. These networks, communities and collectives are challenging the notion of traditional organizations, but to truly become a viable alternative organizing model, they need to develop better ways of dealing with questions of money, power and value flow.
From our experience working in such networks for almost a decade, we know that these are some of the most difficult topics for these organizations to address: maintaining motivation and energy among members, enabling highly-active and less-active members to share workload and power, the tension between volunteer and paid work, freeriding, burnout of core members, lack of and mismanagement of funds, and conflicts around money.
This course will help you take your network to the next level and support you to address these (sometimes uncomfortable) challenges in a cohort of peers.
