Community of Practice

CLICK HERE for a short video explanation from the facilitator

  • Communities of practice are groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly
  • Each session will be facilitated by Leadership Development Coach, Kathy Archer who will aid in:
  • Sharing information
  • Discussing best practices
  • Learning from each other
  • Discovering new knowledge
  • Sharing common challenges

Why a Leadership Community of Practice?

  • Being a leader in Home Visitation or Early Childhood support can have some unique challenges, including a sense of isolation and few opportunities to connect meaningfully with peers.
  • Communities of practice are a valuable professional learning strategy that can support leaders, as they provide opportunities to:
    • Connect with others doing similar work throughout the province
    • Explore new possibilities, solve challenging problems, and create new, mutually beneficial opportunities.
    • Engage in mutual learning through communication, mentoring, coaching, and self-reflection.
    • Capture and share existing knowledge
    • Enter into the parallel process through collaboration
    • Generate new knowledge

(Adapted from Cambridge, Kaplan & Suter)

There are two different Community of Practice Groups, one for Senior Agency Leadership, another for Team Leaders, Supervisors and Managers. Please ensure you join the relevant group.

Who Should Attend:

  • Directors, Executive Directors or CEOs for nonprofit agencies that include Home Visitation and/or Early Childhood Family Programs
  • Fourth Thursday of each month

Please note: A similar Community of Practice Group tailored to Supervisors, Team Leaders and Managers takes place on a different day, register for that one if it better fits your current role.
