Accompaniment as a foundation of capacity building
WHEN: Taking place Thursday 1st of September at 19:00 CEST (Geneva time)
INTRODUCTION TO THIS ONLINE LEARNING EVENT:
The process of capacity building is critical in tapping the latent potential of the individual, the organization, and the community to develop a sustainable, spiritually and morally grounded social and economic development. A key part of that process is accompaniment.
Accompaniment is clearly applicable in not-for-profit organizations. Within for-profit- organizations there appear to be some challenges. The posture of humility, learning, and the concept of service are potentially contradictory to the desire for money and power so prevalent in traditional business organizations.
During our learnshop we will explore questions such as:
. What is a path of service within a for-profit organization?
. How can a posture of learning define a path of service in a for-profit organization?
. Is a posture of humility possible in a for-profit organization?
. Is it possible to decouple power and financial incentives from walking a path of service?
