This is your chance to apply your newly learned skills on a project of your own choosing. The quality of the project will be one that is suitable to add to or begin your permaculture portfolio. In addition, part of this course will focus on different leadership styles. You will learn how to recognize leadership styles in yourself and in others.
Morning Reflections will draw from influential leaders with whom we can learn a great deal from. This will be a a time for sharing and feedback as we delve deeper into our own perspectives of what it means to be a leader.
During the day you will develop your project. We will all work together to determine a schedule for when your day will be the official ‘make it happen’ day. During the day you will be responsible for the effort it will take to work within your budget, find the resources, make the plan, and gain approval from ETC staff of your proposed plan. This is not a simulation of completing a project – this IS completing a project.
In the evenings we will come together to debrief the days progress. This time is dedicated to increasing one’s awareness as to how we go about achieving our goals. This includes sharing our successes and failures as we strive to be effective leaders and change makers.
