    • Do I need to be a Green Belt before I can be a Black Belt?

      • NO. But the preference is that a person attend a green belt class and complete one innovation prior to applying to black belt.

  • Do I need to be a to be a Black Belt before I can be a Peak Performer?

    • NO. Peak Performers are Black Belts but go on to learn facilitation skills, put them into practice in another agency, and put those skills to use back in their home agency.

    • Black Belt Buddies

      Please pick a “buddy” from your cohort. Your buddy should be someone who is NOT in your department that you DID NOT know before the cohort began. This is someone you can go to for:

      • support,

      • to bounce ideas off of and

      • someone you should encourage to innovate

        Please be sure you have your buddy’s contact information and set a time to meet with them for coffee or lunch to discuss your innovations.
