The time has come for new leads to drive the growth and momentum of the studio. Think of the members who have shown interest or potential to be a leader; reach out to them and let them know that you see their potential. Excite new leads and help them transition into their new role to take the reins and make it their own!
Outputs: Have 1 member for each role (check back on "leadership structure & roles")
DFA RISD/Brown put out a call to their studio members for new leaders through a Leadership Interest Form. They included descriptions of different leadership roles and questions about why and what people are interested in. Once people interested in leadership were identified, they had a series of meetings over the latter half of Fall Semester and during Winter Break to prepare for Spring Semester.
To find new leads for the upcoming year, DFA CWRU|CIA’s leadership team met at the end of fall semester to evaluate their leadership structure before finding new leads to fill their roles. The current leads collected input from members and created a draft of the structure as well as a priority list of initiatives to push next year. Then, the leaders recruited leaders who fit the roles of the new structure. Once the leaders were confirmed, the team met to discuss how each role could be iterated to fit the personality and background of the new lead.
