2 1. Constructionism: Through dialogue, we learn about and make sense of our world. 2. Simultaneity: Through the act of asking questions, we can shift the focus of our narrative. 3. Anticipatory: We are drawn toward the images that we create in our dialogues. 4. Poetic: When people are involved in storytelling, they will be involved not only with their heads, but with their hearts. 5. Positive: Momentum for change requires large amounts of both positive affect and social bonding. When people talk about life-giving forces, the positive affect is contagious. 2

3 Each person will conduct an interview and be interviewed. Follow the questions on the interview guide. Manage your time so you can cover all the questions within the allotted time. Use the interview guide as a guide. Allow the interview to follow its own pace and direction. Seek stories by asking who, what, when, and how as probes to your partners answers. Conduct your interview with curiosity and wonder, seeking to discover what matters most to your partner. Take notes of the stories you hear so you will be able to introduce your partner and share those ideas with the group later. 3

4 1. What do you value most about yourself as a person? 2. What are your special talents, gifts or attributes? 3. What do you like most about the people you work with in your chapter? 4. Please tell me the story about when you felt most alive, most inspired and most proud as member of your community or chapter? What was it about that experience that made it a high point? Who was involved? What conditions needed to exist in order for this special moment to happen? 5. Imagine that tomorrow you wake up and on the front page of the local newspaper is a story about the immense success of your chapter in its response to the call toward social responsibility. What is the headline and what story has been told? 4

5 What was the interview process like for you? 5

7 Discussion Leader Timekeeper Recorder Reporter Creative Coordinator Self-Managed Process 7

8 Form groups of eight (4 partner groups) At your table, briefly share a best story told by your interview partner. After hearing each others stories, create a brainstormed list of the themes that were present in the stories and the high points, life-giving forces, ideas the grabbed youthoughts about what life is like when things are at their best. From your groups brainstormed list, agree on and select three to five topics from your group. Cut or tear shapes that are representative of KON or your chapter, write your top themes on the shapes and post them on the wall. 8

9 At tables of 8, share highlights from interview question 5. As a group, put yourselves in the year 2012. Imagine that the positive core of KON chapters is fully alive. Imagine that the chapters have stepped up to the challenge of social responsibility through empowered leadership. Create a dream statement that describes chapters at their best. Write your dream statement on a flipchart and post it on the designated wall. As a small group, prepare to perform a creative presentation of your dream as if it were happening now. (Five minutes maximum length.) 9

10 Even though it seems that organizational design is to people what water is to fish, we rarely pay attention to it, much less take steps to change it. Every element of an organizations social architecture is a human creation and is open to reinvention and redesign. Changes in social architecture represent powerful leverage points for moving an organization toward its dreams. What forms of organizing can: Bring out the best in people? Liberate cooperation? Give form to our highest values and ideals? 10

11 1. On the flip chart, draw a blank design possibilities map using as much of the paper as possible. 2. In the inner circle of the map, write the something that represents your dream for KON chapters in relation to a response to the call toward social responsibility. 3. Brainstorm all the key relationships, both within and outside the organization, that will impact or be impacted by the accomplishment of our dream. In the second circle, write down these relationships. 4. Brainstorm all the formal organization design elements that will influence the accomplishment of our dreams. Write these in the outer circle of the design map. 11

12 4. Write a provocative proposition that describes how the chapter needs to be designed to fulfill the dream of social responsibility through empowered leadership. The statement should address process, structure, relationships, technology, strategy, practice necessary to achieve the dream. 5. Write your provocative statement neatly on flip chart paper and post it on the wall. 12

13 A provocative statement describes what an organization aspires to be and to do to accomplish its dream. It is an ideal that guides and gives direction to decisions, actions, and results. Is filled with both high ethical and moral content and practical, actionable ideas. Is meant to challenge common assumptions and stretch the status quo. 13

14 Plan your specific chapters annual plan in order to achieve your dream re: social responsibility. Be prepared to present your plan in a creative way on Sunday morning. 14

21 Most important pieces: Your dream statement (transferred from group) Your provocative proposition (transferred) Choose specific area of social responsibility that you will focus on. Project impact (what good? For whom?) Broad action steps that will be completed this year. Relationships to be addressed Organizational Design Elements to be addressed 21

22 KON students are creating socially responsible communities that will impact, inspire, and empower the global community to embrace the seven wonders of social responsibility. Current students will be provided mentoring and leadership through education, training, and outreach to understand and embrace social responsibility. Through application of appropriate technology, community resources, mutually beneficial partnerships, effective communication, regularly scheduled meetings, actions plans, and evaluation, the KON members will be come leaders. These empowered individuals will create internal value to foster students and environments to inspire themselves, others and partners to resourcefully practice and promote social responsibility. 22

23 KON inspires to provide proactive programming through volunteerism and support for individuals in need. In order to inspire members to engage in proactive participation in matters that concern all populations in the community (i.e. education, volunteerism, community service, networking and partnering), members/chapters will hold meetings (flexible for attaendance), use concise 2-way communication (giving pertinent info/feedback, i.e. text, email, phone, facebook, etc.). Members will adhere to chapter standards, as well as partner with other student organizations, KON chapters, alumni, universities and community organizations, so we may inspire and empower others through leadership. 23

24 As members of KON, we are using individual gifts and talents to empower people within a community in order to improve the overall quality of life in a socially responsible world. We will structure our chapter into committees and delegate tasks within these committees according to individual strengths. Progress and/or challenges will be communicated through weekly emails, Twitter/Facebook updates, and monthly meetings in order to carry out our goals for service. 24

25 As KON inspirational leaders, we fearlessly advocate empowerment of present and future generations to strive for and sustain community well being. We will achieve chapter dreams by engaging in consistent and innovative processes to create: An adaptable, cohesive and clear structure where we can engage Inclusive relationships that are meaningful and relevant, Utilize focused strategies that are student-led, documented and time limited that lead to shared practices that have an impact on the chapter and the community and Are celebrated and rewarded. Supporting the dream is the use of technology that is user- friendly, attractive, accessible, interactive and efficient. 25

26 We will continue to make a difference in the lives of local families and children through reaching out by educating, offering mentoring, feeding those in need and fulfilling our goal to be socially responsible. Although we are each unique, busy and intelligent individuals, we possess the power and ability to, as a whole, make a difference in the lives of those around us through leadership, service, education, dedication and the desire to fulfill our social responsibilities. Each member will be held accountable for attendance, contributions and participation in chapter meetings and activities. Members will be encouraged to join various committees and take on leader-type tasks to heighten involvement in KON. Through community service acts, members will be able to form social relationships and friendships while giving back to the greater good. We will utilize all available technology (email phone, facebook, etc.) to keep track of participation, network amongst each other, and network with the worldwide KON community. We feel that each member plays a vital role in our chapters success and thus, those members will be recognized and rewarded. 26

27 Reaching out to community through education, awareness, and volunteerism. Develop strong relations among members by increasing communications, expressing new ideas to the chapter, instilling hope, love and a desire to help amongst members. By instituting committees and breaking down tasks, we can accomplish more, dedicate more time, and be more proficient. By all of us coming together, we can achieve our dream to live in a more socially responsible world. 27

28 KON honor students honor the commitment to the world. While we aspire to change the world, we know that we must invite and inspire others to act. We will select a socially responsible theme and goal that is inclusive of all disciplines and members, and we will work through collaboration to address the goal in the community. 28

29 It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a [person] stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, [s/he] sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance. Robert F. Kennedy 29
