Building Collective Capacity in Community Engagement
In this second phase of the Resilience Pathway, we focus on building our Community of Practice, or a guild or team of facilitators and coaches that we will work with.

What is a Pattern

Pattern pages are used for working with RKC patterns. Patterns can be added by referencing them from the Pattern tab of Person, Social-Entity, Community of Place, or Community of Practice pages.

The Main section contains:

  • a few required fields, such as a ordering structure and usage mode, brief description, parent/sibling/offspring of Pattern and page curator(s);
  • optionally, one has the ability to display relevant images, give a full name, and longer description;
  • and, lastly, a summary of key relations which have a pattern on their "playlist" are provided here as well.

Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much.” - Helen Keller

Phase 2 Summary:

During this phase, our primary focus is on building a team, guild, or a community of practice and developing shared capacity to facilitate participatory community engagement processes. We emphasise the development of skills that enable us to relate better to others through appreciation, gratitude, and joy, as well as effective communication, conflict resolution, and decision-making within the group. This phase also highlights the importance of working with intersectionality and activating transformative change.

Phase 2 Goals & Purpose:

Having a focus on developing the skills and competencies needed to facilitate effective and inclusive group processes includes using methods such as active listening, effective communication, hosting dialogue and creating safe and inclusive spaces.

By developing our facilitation competencies, we can more effectively support communities in navigating complex issues and creating meaningful change.

About Essence Tab...

The Essence tab allows for anyone in RKC to comment on what makes a pattern unique along three different dimensions:
   Aliveness: What energizes this being that really makes it come alive, beyond the functional of everyday existence.
   Offering: The unique value a pattern offers in order to bring a higher-order of viability and vitality to, or evolve a particular system they are working to transform (this is context specific).
   Potential: A tendency in a being that this pattern is continually striving to manifest into existence.
Over time, this feature can offer deeper insights to what each pattern brings to this co-creative space.
