Des astuces bien-être collectif // Collective care tips

Voici quelques notes d’un de nos ateliers sur le bien-être collectif. // These are the notes from one of our workshops on collective care

From the images, in English:

Tips on collective care practices:

    – « How are you? » (integrating caring for people and not only their work; being in solidarity with each other)
    – Slow down, take time to care
    – Emotional labour is gendered, thus tiring/annoying; Building feminist practices
    – Develop emotional intelligence, particularly among men
    – Problems not personalized (thus easier to address them)
    – Not trivializing un need, a request
    – Take as much time as needed to analyse power dynamics (in your milieu)
    – Alternating speaking turns (between different power positions; see Safer Space post from March 2017)
    – Limiting speaker turns (ditto)
    – Take breaks
    – Take diversity of experience into consideration
    – Recognize and acknowledge privilege (in particular, senior people)
    – Writing down preoccupations (on post-its) so they can be discussed, and not accumulated
    – Have empathy (e.g., availability of food during meetings)
    – Bringing responsibilities to the forefront (so they can be shared)
    – Communicate and delegate certains tasks
    – Name existing hierarchies (when we say we’re non-hierarchical) and find ways to change & transforme things
    – Explicitly take time for trainings (to democratize expertise)
    – ^Allows for lowering workload of those who’ve taken on a lot.
    – Include people in activities and such so they feel part of the organisation etc
    – Inculcate intentional strategies to welcome and integrate new people
    – At the end of meetings, do a check out with everyone’s tasks (helps reliability and accountability)
    – Work on strategies to decentralize power, responsibilities and tasks
    – Ask and receive help
    – Connect with one-self
    – Active listening
    – Empathie (can’t emphasize enough)
    – Emotional Intelligence (various tools exists to help with that)
    – Committees or strategies of conflict resolution (deescalation as well as management)

Safer Space: respect, no judgment, confidentiality, collective responsibility, learning space, confront ideas and systems and not people in the workshop… (see the full article on safer space below).
