Reflect and reimagine: learning from the work of our North America team in 2022

Partnering for Learning

We put our vision for government into practice through learning partner projects that align with our values and help reimagine government so that it works for everyone.

Partner with us

In 2022, our team in North America worked with 52 government teams, 563 public officials, and 3,358 residents on an incredible spread of issues, refining and clarifying what a “reimagined government that works for everyone” looks, acts, and feels like.

We began to think about our program goals, content, and impact through the lens of three “learning areas”:

  • Mindsets: Shifting the way governments approach problems and develop solutions

  • Relationships: Prioritizing, developing, and fostering meaningful internal and external

  • Culture change: Incorporating new ways of being and working into an organization

Reflecting on CPI’s programmatic content and structure through these three lenses helps us continuously improve how we support governments to serve their communities better. For example, we ask ourselves: are we giving our partners space to uncover and develop the mindsets (e.g., failing forward, systems thinking, equity) that make government more human and effective? How can we adjust our curriculum and workshops to better foster mindset shifts?

The following reflection report details key lessons from 2022 for each learning area. The report includes feedback from our partners, changes we made to better support their learning journeys, and what we are most excited to continue learning.
