How might we leverage friendly competition to encourage more one-on-one conversations between Wye River Leaders?
If the engagement tracker is introduced and we reply to WhatsApp to Wye list serv with a “congrats, you got a point email” every time someone gets a point then Wye Leaders will be more likely to engage in more one-on-one conversations.
Present scoreboard to leaders. Show them how to get points and reiterate that we're looking for one on one conversations.AL/JT/EEK/EK to respond with points when we know about conversations.
How many people respond to the scoreboard generally?How many people reply to Wye List Serv saying they are in ?What are leaders reactions, if anything, about the scoreboard and competition?Target =7 people respond in some way, min =3-6Track the number of people who look at scoreboard on the STP Organizing Website through Bit.ly link.
There was a reaction overall to the centering of "winning" within the work of Wye River from one leader. Criticism highlighted how the issues Wye River addresses are complex and no a dichotomy.
Because of decreased communication from Miles River to the Wye River listserv, only one scoreboard announcement went out and it didn't garner any specific responses. Therefore our experiment failed.
Continue to give positive reinforcement to Wye Leaders for engaging in conversations about Wye River.
