About our Communities of Practice
Our Communities of Practice connect peers and experts on a (bi-)monthly basis. In our facilitated online calls we explore different themes and topics, combining expert input, peer learning and exchange, and practical tools and methodologies that you can apply in your work. We create space to share experiences, good practices, challenges and support each other to put learnings into action.
We currently offer two Communities of Practice: one on purpose-driven leadership and teamwork and one on regenerative measurement.
Purpose-driven leadership & teamwork
For us, purpose-driven leadership and teamwork is based on empowering processes, collaborative and appreciative cultures and developing each individual’s potential. Join us to explore tools and practices for leading and collaborating from the inside out.
This community of practice is for you if you are:
- Leading a team or department or growing into a leadership role
- Working in human resources or internal capacity development
- A culture leader that seeks to influence internal ways of working
- A founder (co-)leading your own organisation
- You are seeking ways to practice a more human-centred and empowering approach to leadership and teamwork
Regenerative Measurement & Evaluation
Have you ever wondered if it’s possible to apply measurement in a way that brings energy and motivation rather than taking it? For us, measurement and evaluation is based on curiosity, joint learning, sharing knowledge and applying methodologies that capture human complexity.
Our approach centres around holistic capacity development of people, teams and systems. It is grounded in science and keeps the focus on being practical and relevant. As such, rethinking why, how and what we measure can help us orient towards what matters in our work.
This community of practice is for you if you are working in:
- impact evaluation or organisational learning
- a leadership role where metrics are part of your work
- human resources or internal capacity development
- strategy development or innovation
- any other role where a regenerative approach to measurement can support your work
Our Living Library is a curated collection of resources that make a difference to your day to day work. Our resources bring together practical tools and experience, with relevant, academically grounded sources and insights.
Our approach to developing our library is based on the needs of our network members, connected to our core topics: purpose-driven leadership and teamwork, learning & experience design, personal & inner development and regenerative measurement & evaluation.
As a network member, you can share the resources within your organisation, and integrate them into your internal processes and offerings.
Examples of Our Resources
The Kofi Annan Foundation enjoyed collaborating with Unity Effect for its Kofi Annan Changemakers initiative and greatly benefited from Emily’s facilitation skills and caring attitude. She brought innovative formats while preserving the core spirit of the initiative and was friendly and collaborative throughout the planning and delivery of the programme. On request of the organizing team, Unity Effect also conducted an impact evaluation of the programme, providing valuable information and suggestions that will further support the initiative’s growth and positive impact on its young changemakers.
Kofi Annan Foundation
Our network is geared towards creating value on a personal level. Although you join as a representative from an organisation, the resources, online calls and further support provided are centred around the ambition to enable you personally to carry out your work in a more intentional way. This is why our pricing model is based on individual participation.
We offer different price levels to enable people from different backgrounds to be able to join the Journey. We don’t want price to be a barrier and therefore we offer limited number of reduced rate scholarships for each Journey, with the final price agreed on together with you. To apply for a scholarship, please select this option in the application form.
The Leadership Journey has been certified by the Institute for Education and Social Innovation (Ibugi). We are able to issue two kinds of certificates of successful completion, a Further Education Certificate for the professional context and a Higher Education Certificate for the academic context (3 ECTS points).
