Start a network

Connection is the first step of any opportunity.

GOOD KARMA NETWORK INTRODUCTION

Thank you for your interest in starting a Good Karma Network for your community.

The Good Karma Network (GKN) initiative was started in April 2016, with the intention of enabling individuals to ask for help from those within their community and inspiring others to be able to provide the assistance required.

The main driver behind the creation of the GKNs is recognition of the fact that at time everyone is struggling with something, and that we all also have many things to offer. The networks create the opportunity for ‘needs’ to be met by ‘haves’ within a community, making lives easier, better and happier. The GKNs provide your community with the opportunity to work together to find solutions to challenges, and the model is designed to ensure that solutions are focused on rather than problems, everything offered is done so with no expectation of anything in return, and that no negativity is acceptable.

The networks are designed to remain as helpful, positive and relevant to ALL members of your network as possible, and maintaining access as well as a safe and supportive environment for everyone, regardless of their demographic, is the number one priority.

The values for the Good Karma Networks are openness, compassion and empathy, collaborative problem solving, unity and inclusion, positivity, empowerment and action.

Administrator role description

The GKN model has been designed to maximise opportunities for your members and minimise the administration required by you. GKNs are designed to empower your members to take ownership and responsibility for the group and uphold the values and intentions. However, the model requires your commitment to grow it and regular input to help your members to understand and embrace the culture.

Our job as administrators is to establish and maintain the GKN culture that facilitates the amazing outcomes that are possible when a community is connected and focused on solving problems together. Other responsibilities are managing membership and ensuring members added are aware of the ethos and guidelines for interacting within the group, gently guiding the group, encouraging engagement by suggesting ways to use the group and responding to people’s requests, and reminding the members of the guidelines and intentions, as required, to maintain the integrity of the group. Good leadership will minimise the challenges you experience as an administrator.

As an authorised Good Karma Network administrator, you will gain access to all resources and support that the Good Karma Effect has available and be added to the Good Karma Network founders group for collaborative problem solving. Support provided by the Good Karma Effect is intended to make the task of administering a GKN as smooth and challenge free as possible.

Prior to starting a Good Karma Network, it is important to consider:

Please contact me for the next steps toward starting your Good Karma Network if you decide that this is a commitment you would like to take on. It is not one to take on lightly, however is very rewarding when you are successful at facilitating the connections within your community which help make people’s lives easier.

Kind regards,
Amy Churchouse
