New suite of resources to support network effectiveness and Network Leaders
To support Network effectiveness and Network Leaders.
COPE Scotland was delighted to attend a Network Weaving learning series within the Q Community Facilitated by Kristin Johnstad and other Network Weavers we learned much about the idea of Network Weaving through the work of June Holley. When the learning series was over, some of those who attended felt it would be great to share that learning with others.
With June's permission and the support of Kristin Johnstad, and the Health and Social Care Alliance, we secured funding through the Supporting Q Connections Funding to connect with colleagues working in health and social care across the UK and Ireland, to explore the challenges to networks and for those in a network leadership role. Listening and sharing learning through many conversations, peer assistance sessions, and active learning sessions we were able to adapt and develop the materials into a new suite of resources, building on the excellent work done by so many others.
These new resources include:
The Curiosity Poster
A simple tool to invite curiosity about learning more about network effectiveness, network leadership and network weaving.

We all have it in us to be Network Weavers and none of us can do this alone. That is why we have each other.
