Strategy 2030 is about change. It is about changing not just what we do, but how we do it, so that we are even better able to save lives, accompany people and support their resilience… To do this we must listen, think and be ready to act differently, and be open to learning and adapting along the way.
The Learn to Change (LtC) initiative strengthens the culture and practices of personal, team and organisational learning and change across all parts of the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement.
Learn to Change creates a community of learning leaders and practitioners who model the culture and skills that will be required to navigate the increasing complexities of our operating context.
Learn to Change makes learning tools and practices widely available to RCRC volunteers, staff and leaders and supports the application of these tools across diverse contexts.
Learn to Change helps volunteers, staff and leaders navigate the disruptive times ahead.
What is Learn to Change?
Learn to Change is about the how. How we understand and connect with ourselves and others. How we listen and how we trust each other. How we work in our network of organisations. How we learn, how we change, and how we learn to change. It is about learning to become agile by continually exploring, prototyping, innovating and improving.
Learn to Change provides techniques to nurture curiosity and discovery. It is about creating safe spaces for change to be imagined, tested and celebrated.
Learn to Change is a space where people can freely meet and share, where tools and approaches can be designed and adapted, where progress and challenges can be openly discussed.
Learn to Change is about the practical steps each one of us can take to become learning leaders in our work.
What does success look like?
Success for Learn to Change is described in Strategy 2030’s seven transformations. These transformations require a radical change of our way of working and our culture, as individuals, as teams, and as the world’s leading humanitarian network.
As Learning Leaders we lead by example, we encourage our peers, we create learning cultures, fostering time, space and trust.
Success is monitored by all, using innovative approaches to sense our systems, online and offline data capture and processing.
Success is demonstrated by improved levels of volunteer and staff engagement and performance.
Success is achieved with every change in mindset, every re-think and every prototype that brings us closer to accomplishing our humanitarian mission.
