Topic: If You Till It, They Will Come: Nurturing Collective Leadership

Date: Tuesday, January 17, 2012 11:00-12:00 Noon PST (2:00-3:00PM EST)

Much is being made these days of the Occupy Movement and its potential for showing us a new way to lead (we would call it leader-full, not leader-less). Prior to this important civic groundswell, many have been looking at how to create the conditions for emergent and collective leadership to move us in more just and life-affirming directions.  Given the complexity of the issues we face and the diversity of perspectives in our various systems, it has been recognized that we cannot rely on individual, expert, or command-and-control leadership to move us forward.  We must unleash more robust and adaptive collective intelligence.  For almost 20 years, the Interaction Institute for Social Change (IISC) has been building the collaborative capacity of change agents for greater social impact.  In this webinar, IISC Senior Associates Curtis Ogden and Gibran Rivera will explore stories of and practices for creating the conditions to unleash leader-full momentum that embodies and leads to the social change we seek.
