St John needed to help their youth leaders unlock their leadership style to keep them relevant as an organisation.
Youth leaders are the engine behind St John’s growing success in New Zealand communities. They come from diverse backgrounds and often have grown up through the St John programmes starting at the age of 6 years old. This audience knows the organisation well, but needed to be given the skills and confidence to step up as a leader in St John.
Create a learning solution that would help St John youth leaders:
Prior to undertaking any work, Inspire Group facilitated a co-design session with St John to get clear on what their expectations of the learning would be e.g. what they wanted their youth leaders to know, do and be after the learning.
From this thorough briefing with St John, Inspire Group designed the solution "Be the Leader You Are" a one-day facilitated leadership development workshop for a diverse audience with varied needs.
This workshop included a blend of facilitator-led, open group discussions, self-directed learning and reflection.
Immediate response after the workshop was extremely positive, with youth leaders feeling confident and excited about applying their new skills. Since completion of the workshops, many attendees have stepped up into leadership roles and have put their learnings into practice.
