What are the fruits being harvested?
The fruits that Harvesting participants enjoy are the answers to questions like: “What gets you really going when you are at your best?” These answers touch the personal as well as the organisational level of participants’ endeavours. Looking at moments, patterns of behaviour or circumstances when SOS co-workers are in a “flow”, when they are achieving the best results in supporting children at risk or in need, enables SOS Children’s Villages to grow in that direction.
Co-workers learn and benefit from each other’s wealth of experiences in being effective.
Harvesting proves that telling one’s own story and relating it to the narrations of colleagues fosters the feeling of belonging, inspires taking action, gives motivation and is lived appreciation. Coming together in Harvesting offers participants the possibility to share ideas and to reflect on what the vision of SOS Children’s Villages means for each co-workers individual task. All this is about best possible ways of unfolding potentials of children and young people.
