Organisational development in the Union of Ladies of Drama
A complete strategic planning that includes 5 different themes for the needs of the association.
What was this?
The strategic planning of the 5 axes was completed using a hybrid model: in 2 days of in person workshops and 2 digital workshops. We visited the Ladies Union of Drama, met all the key members of the association and together we analysed the following topics:
✔️What problem are you solving?
✔️ Work Culture & Decision Making
✔️ Who are your partners and how do you make them commit to your actions?
✔️Team and internal communication
✔️Positive and constructive feedback
This specific project was implemented in the framework of the program "The Mobile School Travels" by the Active citizens fund, with the implementing body being the Ladies Union of Drama - House of Open Hospitality.
The project "The Mobile School Travels" is implemented within the framework of the Active citizens fund program, with the implementing body the Union of Ladies of Drama-D.L.U. The €12m Active citizens fund program is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway and is part of the European Economic Area (EEA) funding mechanism for the period 2014 - 2021, known as EEA Grants. The program aims to strengthen and enhance the sustainability of civil society and to highlight its role in promoting democratic processes, enhancing citizen participation in the community and defending human rights. The management of the Active citizens fund program in Greece has been jointly undertaken by the Bodossaki Foundation and SolidarityNow.
Like all our workshops, strategic planning is based on the following values:
Interactivity: A process of designing and implementing a workshop that takes into account the different ways of learning, interaction and teamwork.
Professionalism: A professional facilitator with flexibility, contagiousness, creativity, that takes into account the needs of the participants during the workshop.
A Safe space: A digital space where participants feel comfortable expressing themselves, interacting with respect and participating actively, as a team and effectively.
Conclusions: Clear goals, conclusions and next steps, so that everything that was discussed/decided during the workshop is implemented practically.
Integrated strategic planning is one of the biggest investments an organisation can make in its development. At Youthnest (now among) we share knowledge and practical tools, so that each organisation can overcome its challenges and lay a solid foundation for its future plans.
Thus, with the Ladies Union of Drama, we collaborated for 4 days, studying alternatives to the issues they faced and we designed personalised solutions, so that the knowledge has a practical application. We recognize that every organisation is unique and that there is no single solution for everyone.
Impact such as an integrated organisational development process as we design it, can only bring positive results, as the members of the organisation have the opportunity to express themselves and be heard. In this way, teamwork and trust are strengthened, which are necessary characteristics to face any challenge.
