Flexible & Inclusive
Make use of a ready to use structure, developing your Leap journey at your own pace. Each community is on a different path, has a different context and is embedded in a specific culture. We acknowledge this and suggest you to adapt the structure and topics to your specific situation, considering the wishes & needs of your community. Creating different modules and combinations of workshops that serve these needs. We also want your feedback about the platform, tools and workshops, to make sure we can adapt and keep it useful for everyone!
This is a living and organic platform created by oikees for oikees. You can suggest for example new formats for the platform or new content topics. We highly recommend you to also share with other oikos members, chapters, friends, partners your unique leadership journey and the workshops you host for your community, so more people can learn different ways of doing it. That is how this platform works... Everyone taking ownership of it!
