On the day a Green House home opens the Shahbazim become the managers of the home as well as partners to the Elders. It requires a deep understanding of the systems that support the home. The core functions include the Food, Scheduling, Care, Team, and Housekeeping systems and the Coordinator Roles each Shahbaz fills on a rotating basis. These functions are the guts of the home and to be successfully carried out require strong relationships and excellent communication. If the systems work, the days go smoothly. Without good systems, respectful relationships and high communication it can be a rocky road!
This preconference day will explore the Coordinator Roles and the core systems around Food, Scheduling and Care. It will ask participants to identify what makes for good relational coordination; meaning shared vision, shared knowledge and mutual respect. The best thinking and lessons learned will be the basis for conversations on how to sharpen and improve the core systems and relationships of the homes.
If you are a Shahbaz at an open or soon to be open Green House home, plan on attending THE GREEN HOUSE® Annual Meeting and Celebration in Boston on November 18th. Leave with new ideas, new insights and many new friends. Register at the Peer Network website. For more information about the program contact Aortigara@ncbcapitalimpact.org
