This module is woven throughout the program, providing you with in-depth and personalized support to integrate and apply the insights and experiences you gain from the other modules. It will help you clarify what you will do differently and how you will show up differently, as you move further along in the Innovator’s Journey.
By “practicum” we mean a project or initiative, not a work placement. You’ll hone an innovative idea for the system you work in or are passionate about. You can frame the project to meet your own needs, including:
- Scoping and designing an intervention for a context/challenge you are passionate about
- Developing and testing an innovative intervention for a specific challenge faced by or within your organization, community, or community of collaborators
- Collaborating with fellow participants on their focus area or an area you jointly choose
Throughout the program, you’ll take part in one-to-one executive coaching, peer-to-peer coaching, and group mentoring. You can choose to have your coaching focus on your practicum, on developing specific competencies, or on clarifying your purpose and direction as a social innovator. Peer-to-peer coaching calls will allow you to participate in a learning community with colleagues working on diverse issues, while group mentoring will let you tap into the wisdom, experience and networks of the seasoned social innovators we invite to lead the sessions.
