FUNCTIONAL_HUMAN

It’s no secret that most grassroots communities severely lack essential resources (qualified staff and funding, being the largest two variables); resources that in many ways, dictate the outcomes of our desired goals and outcomes. In this course, leaders (students) will learn techniques to delegate effectively, and frugally do so, with the least amount of community blow-back. Students will grasp strategies to boost group morale, using practical methods with little-to-no-cost. We will envision, sharpen, and learn how to employ, time management skills, in order to create a new standard of tribal productivity, for the future.

Students will learn how to identify and diagram internal-program-functions in order to isolate potentially common organizational distractions. Discover how to commandeer your precious time, to complete projects (of all sizes) and to provide tangible-deliverables (this shits is not all fun and games, it actually takes lots of work…), with a few minor adjustments. Each student will be taught to discern “what is urgent” and “not urgent” in their organization (or spiritual path, depending on how deep you want to go with this knowledge).

We will focus in on just how much time we actually waste (especially at the highest-community operational levels) and how to resolve that issue.  In order to begin functioning like a well-oiled machine, leadership must first make some crucial decisions; decisions that most people will encounter in groupthink. 

For the tribe that struggles to make decisions (yes, I’m talking to you), I’ve got several highly impactful tools of the trade that will help—so you can hold a quorum, allow everyone a say, and at the same time quantifiably produce data, and then vote with confidence—what more can you ask for! In this course, you will learn how to (formally) get stuff done, by utilizing the power of choice and the implementation of raw facts.

We will expand on the conceptual idea of teamwork, learning how to get the best possible results, with the least amount of grumbling (even from the most difficult of personalities – yes, there are many of them in spiritual circles everywhere!).  In order to be the best for our function and our circles, it is my belief, that we must first recognize our own individual biases and shortcomings, in order to be just and impartial.  Believe, you’ll thank me later!

“A tribe that focuses on the functionality of empirical reasoning and decision making—in the spirit of productivity, will ultimately find a unique solution that is not only sustainable for their unique community—will evidently discover several avenues that are undeniably palatable, for even the most unreasonable party”. — Brian Melendez
