Central Rivers AEA staff members are invited to assist with strengthening of relationships and culture within our organization by participating in a climate and culture audit. Since the health of an organization begins with individuals, the agency felt it was important that each individual had an opportunity to learn about their own approach to leadership and provide perceptual data about the health of the organization.
In mid to late January, you will receive an invitation to participate in an all-staff survey designed to gather your feedback regarding the health of our organization and your individual leadership approach. The survey is completely anonymous and will be administered by Tamara Konrade and Tammy Fellers, INspired Leadership Trainers and Master Energy Leadership Index Practitioners. In addition, Tamara and Tammy will be working with teams of 12-14 the weeks of February 4-7 and February 25-28 to further process responses and delve deeper into the work. There will be a total of 32 groups meeting during these two weeks. Groups will meet Monday-Thursday and the times will be 8-11:30 am and 12-3:30 pm. All staff members are asked to participate with the following exceptions: 1.) Anyone who has already taken the training on August 1-2, 2018; 2.) CRAEA Administrators; 3.) River Hills staff.
We ask that you sign up with your discipline/department for the three and a half hour session through our agency registration system by January 22. Within the next few days, you will receive an email from either Amy Moine or Marcia Brolsma with an individual link to get registered from a set of options provided. (You will not need to go through the steps of requesting permission from your supervisor since this is an all-agency activity.) Agency support staff: You will receive an email with your time slot assigned. The goal of this time is to review your personal attitudinal assessment results, listen to celebrations and concerns about the climate and culture at Central Rivers AEA, and empower you to lead in a way that unites, heals, and helps individuals, relationships and cultures.
There are two additional actions we need from you by January 22:
- View the brief video about energy levels here. https://essdk.me/VentureIn7levels
- Complete the Energy Leadership Index (ELI) which will come to you by email. (Please note: If you took this for previous learning workshops (August 1 and 2 or January 23, 24), you do not need to take it again.
Details about the assessment for those that haven’t taken it:
- You will be receiving an email in early January and it will come from the sender: “assessments do not reply”. It is not junk mail. Please open it to find the link as well as your unique password at the bottom of the email to take the assessment. Copy and paste the password as it is case sensitive. If you do not receive the assessment email within 24 hours, please respond to this email.
- Please complete the assessment by Monday, January 22, 2019. It will take about 20 minutes to complete. You will receive your personal results during the session you choose in February. Your results will not be shared with or seen by anyone else.
All individual results are confidential and names will not be used in the report. A written report with collective quantitative and qualitative data will be given to the Central Rivers AEA Cabinet and Board.
