In the global gathering we began to pull together how we want people to feel at different stages of working with Open Food Network. We then began to reflect on process that instances can put in place to ensure we create a good working environment.
It would be fantastic to have more thoughts on this topic as in Australia we’re currently trying to set up some new processes around this and I’d much rather be working with global to share resources and not replicate work others are doing but instead work on complementary pieces of this.
- What else is missing in terms of how we want people to feel? (I’ve made this a wiki so you can add directly under the headings)
- Have you set up processes in your instance that you can share? Are you working on any?
- Are there any processes from elsewhere you think we should look at?
The stage Growth / Thriving / Self-Actualisation is about what it’s like to work for Open Food Network. How are people supported professionally and personally during their time with us.

From Hi I’m Laurie to Everyone: (10:52 PM) a process to get feedback from team members about how we are hard to work with would be valuable (or what makes us awesome to work with)
From Lynne Davis to Everyone: (10:53 PM) Yeah I’m working on a process for UK for this Laurie. Like an anonymous form with: - Great things Less good things Then in a meeting space everyone says good things and the person themself can talk about where theyd like to improve based on feedback

do people know the “appreciative inquiry” process. I’ve been part of a number of organizations that used it over the years. It might be a process worth looking into - just a set of tools that are not framed around ‘assessment’ per se. What is Appreciative Inquiry? Examples & Resources for the Appreciative Inquiry Process
