We are back in a national lockdown… In the second episode of Fighting Back, we talk about how our clubs are responding to new restrictions, whilst continuing to support young people in our communities.
Highlights and ideas from this episode include:
1. Develop a learning culture. Consult, develop, deliver, learn and adapt. Encourage staff and members to be inquisitive, adaptive and willing to try new things. Learning includes making mistakes. If you encourage a learning culture, challenges become opportunities to build a strong and effective organisation.
2. Connect and join up services. Take a look at the network of support in your community, (community partners, schools, statutory organisations, food banks etc) develop partnerships to compliment not replicate and share learning and knowledge.
3. Support your team. Check-in to make sure your team have everything that they need to work from home. This includes the right equipment and the right resources. Identify ways to make wellbeing and mental health support available to all members of your team.
4. Be agile and flexible in thought and action. To survive and thrive in a changing world, we need to try new ways of delivering our services. Being able to think, act and adapt quickly is essential to this.
