The Pacific Fellowship Development Group has commenced the task of looking at the feedback from the discussion themes at ICGB. This group has one youngish leader on the team from each country (who attended ICGB), and she is being mentored and supported by one of the national leaders or by a “more mature” leader who also attended ICGB.
This group has been put together for a specific task which is to look at the collated feedback from the themed discussion topics at ICGB and formulate an action plan firstly for their country and then collectively for our Fellowship. We will then look at what has been identified by each country to see if there are links between countries needing to work on the same theme. For example if countries identify that they need training in mentoring leaders, then this is something that the Pacific
Fellowship could include at our next conference, or maybe get a resource written so countries can train their own leaders in mentoring. Points identified as being specifically for one country, will be fed back to that country.
This follow up from ICGB is extremely important as the themes addressed are very relevant for the future of GB. Our leaders gave us their feedback and thoughts and now we need to be formulating an action plan. I believe it is all about working together and sharing resources, there is no point in everyone doing their “own thing”.
The Development Groups are to feed back to me by Friday 10th October. At some stage following that date the findings will be sent out to everyone.
