Onboarding in OuiShare is distributed. The endorsing (=sponsoring) Connectors play an important part in this process.
New Connectors are onboarded by one of their endorsing Connectors. Here are the steps to be followed for the endorsing Connector onboarding somebody new:
Get an overview: Future Connector journey metamap
Once the person has given you their letter of intent, identified their 3 endorsing Connectors and the kick-off phase is over.
Ask them for a 1-3 min video about themselves, to introduce them in the Connectors Facebook group to the other Connectors. This is just a very informal video to say hi that can be made with a phone. See some examples.
Add them to the OuiShare Connectors Dashboard.
Complete the check-list on the dashboard to ensure the person has been added to all Collaboration Tools. Since they might already be on many of the tools, make sure not to overlook:
Loomio Groups that are for Connectors only.
Add them to the "group" on slack "Connectors" (groups are different than channels).
Add them to the Connectors page on the website: send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a good quality picture, and their Twitter and Linkedin account details.
Introduce them in the OuiShare Connectors Loomio thread for welcoming.
Send the new Connectors this welcoming message for new Connectors
