KnowledgeBase's "Reach - Then Teach" Leadership Cohort Raises $2,500 Via KivaZip!






Thanks for your continued interest in our work!

On April 13, 2015 we completed a $2,500 fundraising campaign through crowdfunding site Kiva Zip to support the following efforts ...
  1. Developing and launching a coordinated marketing effort via MailChimp, Facebook, LinkedIn, and SpeakerMatch. This effort will help us to recruit new cohort members, identify new problems to solve, and share our catalog of short films, gameshows, and classroom lesson plans with a larger audience.
  2. Producing the "Now You Know History Quiz Bowl" - a "Jeopardy"-styled gameshow with episodes that share the stories of 26 ordinary people who accomplished extraordinary feats.
  3. Producing "Bag Of Life" - a small-group relationship building activity that uses randomly drawn cards containing fill-in-the-blank sentences, questions, and words that encourage transparent self-expression.

About KnowledgeBase's "Reach - Then Teach" Leadership Cohort

KnowledgeBase’s "Reach - Then Teach" Leadership Cohort is a diverse group of 12 professionals who build relationships, increase capacity, and generate solutions by executing mentoring, conflict resolution, and problem solving projects.

We help people to help people.

We then help people *who* help people.

Since 2012, our cohorts have crowdsourced and delivered the following solutions ...

  1. Produced and debuted "Now You Know History Quiz Bowl" - a one-hour "Jeopardy"-styled gameshow with episodes that share the stories of 26 ordinary people who accomplished extraordinary feats.
  2. Produced and debuted "Bag Of Life" - a small-group relationship building activity that uses randomly drawn cards containing fill-in-the-blank sentences, questions, and words that encourage transparent self-expression.
  3. Produced a four-minute video to explain the work of our leadership cohort.
  4. Helped a church recover its financial and membership database after its server crashed.
  5. Helped a homeowner's association create an online map of surrounding communities to support its outreach effort.
  6. Developed and implemented a strategy to help a school prevent iPhones from overloading the campus network.
  7. Used an AM radio to show a school the sources of electromagnetic interference that made their Internet service unreliable.
  8. Written and delivered 120 funding proposals to a database of foundations (that we built) in 90 days.
  9. Helped a school mediate 750 student conflicts during the academic year (an average of 1 per day).

KnowledgeBase Principal Consultant Derrick Brown (a publisher, filmmaker, executive coach & registered mediator with engineering degrees from Clemson and Georgia Tech) leads the cohort.

“Our previous 2 cohorts have teamed high school & college students with experienced professionals in creative, unconventional ways,” said Brown.

“For example, each member is a mentor and mentee – depending on our project. When we helped a local school keep iPhones off the school’s network, our younger members led that effort.”

“The older members led when we supported a homeowner association’s outreach effort by mapping its surrounding communities online.”

“Members are pleasantly surprised to learn that they are paid for their solutions. My mission is to coach each cohort to victory in ways that help our project partners reach their goals.”

“I love to engage innovators who like to solve problems and help people. I am the product of mentoring relationships, peacemaking, and problem solving. I am simply teaching what I have been taught, while continuing to learn from my students.”

In addition to the external projects, Brown also teaches and trains members by conducting workshops on diverse topics like creative problem solving, data analysis & visualization, conflict resolution, game design, and filmmaking.

“These workshops develop and sharpen our mental, physical, and strategic tools. This teaching, coupled with nurturing and guidance, produces personal growth and great fruit. The fruit is then used to feed and replant.”


About Derrick Brown (Principal Consultant)
 



I am Keisha's husband, and Hannah's father.

My *other* passion is empowering people via methods that balance skill & will, analysis & synthesis, ideas & execution, and activity & achievement.

I am the product of my mentoring relationships, peacemaking (and peacekeeping), and problem-solving ability.

I am a publisher, filmmaker, executive coach & registered mediator with engineering degrees from Clemson and Georgia Tech.

My education began when I finished school.

After school, I enrolled in a lifelong curriculum that includes the following classes ...

  • ministry
  • entrepreneurship
  • literacy 
  • numeracy 
  • language 
  • self-expression
  • self-identity
  • analysis & synthesis

KnowledgeBase is a ministry that has evolved from wisdom earned through lessons learned.

I want to share this wisdom to build teams of "triple threat" fellows - mentors, mediators, and problem solvers.

We will collaborate in simple, powerful ways that allow us to help people.

I now know that power is work done efficiently (with wise and skillful use of resources, interests, communication, and expertise).
