About this course:
In the face of falling union density and the pressures of everyday organising, it often feels like we are treading water when it comes to union growth. Every union member has a vital role to play, which is why it’s so important for organisers to take the time to transfer their knowledge, confidence and skills to union members.
This course revisits key conversation frameworks, focusing on how to coach others to grow the union. Through learning and applying coaching frameworks, organisers will come away with the skills to support delegates and activists to take ownership of being a member, and to share the responsibility of growing strong, sustainable unions.
The course is best suited for Organisers who have had some on-the-job experience, or a refresher for Organising leads who may want to apply coaching frameworks to support new Organisers in their work.
This course is offered in one block of two-day training via in person plus two two-hour follow up sessions (one at four weeks and one at three months post course) via zoom.
