Group alignment









Introduction: Alignment is about being in sync while moving in the same direction. Getting aligned as a group means that we can make the most out of the time spent together. Getting aligned is a practice - this is why we revisit it during the program. As a first step, it is important to know why we are in groups. The reason is twofold. Firstly, the group is a comfortable space where we support and challenge each other's learning journey. Secondly, in the group we learn about each other's contexts, and therefore can support translating insights from the program into practice outside the program, as well as follow up on commitments.

Being aligned makes it possible to make the most out of being in a group and spending time together. This can mean group members following through with commitments, everyone being energized, growing, etc. By revisiting group alignment, we keep asking - is this how we want to be? is there something we want to do differently?

Intention Shared responsibility for creating a space that helps us make the most of the time we spend together.



(5min) Think back to the time since last group alignment, and the space you have created together (If you're doing group alignment for the first time, just reflect on the space you have created together so far). Reflect upon the following questions: -Have we followed up on our commitments as a group? -What has worked towards us creating a good space as a group? -What has worked against it? (5min) Share thoughts with the rest of the group. Find a place/format for saving your insights as a group so you can be reminded of them throughout the program.


(15min) Discuss in the group: Based on what everyone has shared - what do we want to prioritize as a group, going forward? Decide: What rules do we want to have as a group? What mindsets do we want to cultivate? Make sure you save your decisions as a group so you can be reminded of them throughout the program, and revisit them easily.
