Each Convoy typically has up to 12 members (plus potentially a guide/navigator). Keeping groups small helps to ensure everyone is heard and can fully participate.
Convoy takes an Agile approach to Getting Things Done.
We use two key elements from Scrum:
– Add the weekly Guest Speaker, network vigorously, and you have the Convoy Community!
Once a week, each Convoy meets virtually for 40-60 mins to review:
The weekly meet up makes it possible to leverage each others’ networks and find those elusive jobs, gigs and opportunities that are not posted or advertised.
It also helps us appreciate that “People are succeeding out there, so there’s hope for me!” and that, when the rejections happen, “It’s not just me!”
Daily Stand-Up Meeting
Every working day, each “triplet” has a brief 6-15 min call to cover:
Weekly Guest Speaker
Once a week, all members of all Convoys are invited to hear a Guest Speaker presentation.
These 60-90 minute sessions are for education, inspiration and motivation. It’s an opportunity to pick up a new skill or insight, or something that could be useful in that crucial interview.
