"Building community in a crisis"

Case study - An SFiO coaching project in Romania

Jan 10, 2021

A Global Chapter Meeting with Cristian Boldișteanu and John Brooker

Introduced by Carey Glass

“It’s about the project, it’s not only about the community because our community wouldn’t be what it is now if not for the project we did together.” says Cristian Boldișteanu.

In management consultancy, the idea of doing team development for its own sake, such as measuring and sharing working style profiles, is widely accepted. However, it divorces teams from their everyday reality. Instead working with teams on a needed project can create the same powerful goal of team development and team bonding with the added benefit of the team knowing it can work successfully together in its day-to-day reality.

In this video Cristian and his colleagues described how their own community emerged through a bright idea to offer on-line coaching to not-for-profits during the pandemic.
