The core team

What does the core team do?

  • The core team is the organising pivot that makes the network run. In addition to the core team, the network consists of active members (who participate in activities) and passive members (who follow from a distance, but are just as good at learning).
  • The core team develops an offer for (1) coaches and consultants and (2) companies and organisations.
  • The core team communicates about the offer and vision of the network. This is currently done via e.g. newsletter and website.

What is expected of you when you become a core team member

  • endorse the vision and offer as found on the website
  • participate in the (monthly) contact moments. These meetings alternate between short online ZOOM sessions (about 1 hour) on the one hand and physical meetings on the other hand (until now these took place at one of the members’ premises on a weekday between 16:00 and 20:00).
  • commitment for at least 1 calendar year.
  • taking on tasks and developing joint initiatives (under the umbrella brand ‘Corporate Rituals’). This according to your own drive, agenda, skills and knowledge.
  • it is important that you feel an affinity with rituals and Ancient Wisdom. Preferably you are already active within the business world as a coach, consultant, process facilitator. HR managers, change managers, executives also have the right profile.

What can you expect in return

  • As a member of the core team you are visible on the corporaterituals.be homepage
  • You can use the ‘umbrella brand’ corporate rituals in your own communication.
  • You can help shape the joint calendar of activities.
  • You join a well-functioning core team that has already been ‘coasting’ for a few years and has laid the initial foundations in terms of vision, operation and PR (e.g. website, database, etc.)

What the core team is not

  • Even though there is an informal exchange of knowledge and we experience the interaction at these meetings as nourishing, the meetings with the core team are primarily focused on organisational aspects that improve the network and keep it running (offering, communication, reaching out & networking…)
  • There is no organisational structure where you can delegate work to others. So you are part of an informal and self-managing network.
  • In principle you participate as an individual (and not as a representative of an organisation)

Principles from which we work

  • You come in the first place to bring rather than take. You do not act out of fear of scarcity, but you believe that through co-creation and sharing of knowledge and network we create abundance: 1+1=11!
  • Serving the greater whole. No one has a monopoly on (the old) wisdom.
  • Cost effective. There is no ‘membership fee’ that you have to pay in advance. Any costs that are inherent to the collective functioning (which is determined together) are settled proportionally at the end of the calendar year. The core team jointly determines the financial efforts that are to be made. For your information: in previous years, the core team always aimed and succeeded at achieving a financial balance.
