Colearning Strategy Retreat 2

April 24, 2017 – July 5, 2017

At Cholita Linda in Oakland.

How might we...

  • How might we work more strategically?

Hypothesis

A two-day, self-organized retreat will give all of us enough time to do our own individual strategic work while also benefitting from each other’s feedback.

Design

Pick a date (June 29-30) and location (Bay Area), and invite the other colearners to:

  1. Declare their individual goals and requests of others
  2. Co-design the retreat

Do the retreat!

Debrief at the end of the retreat.

Metrics

Everybody will pre-declare what they want to be held accountable to. At the end of the retreat, check in to see how everyone did.

Also have a more qualitative debrief.

Learnings

  • 8 participants (up from 4 the last time), with two out-of-town participants (L.A. and Portland) and three repeat participants. The only person who didn’t repeat from last time was from out-of-town (St. Louis).
  • Two days worked! Again, it helped to do it at Anya’s house.
  • People once again felt like it was a valuable space. New people felt embraced. Good way to on-board folks into the community.
  • January and June feels like a good rhythm
  • More well-defined recommended designations of solo vs peer time is helpful.

Decisions

Do it again in January 2018. More well-defined recommended designations of solo vs peer time. See if we can drum up interest in doing a real retreat (i.e. not at someone’s house).
