Guest Blog Post: “Leadership Development Unleashed – The Power of Local Programs” ...and, BECAUSE SOMEONE ASKED!

By Mary Ann Hennen, Program Leader for the Leadership and Civic Engagement programs at the Center for Community Vitality University of Minnesota Extension

 

Leadership learning opportunities take on all shapes and sizes across our country, some more powerful than others, yet all delivered with good intention to build the capacity of others and help learners’ make the difference’ they seek in the world. This mission has driven me since I was one of those earnest undergraduate and graduate student leaders. In 1980, one of my undergraduate advisors, Dr. Kathy Allen, encouraged me to attend a summer leadership retreat at University of Nebraska – Lincoln, and I was hooked. The retreat was marvelous, and by its end, I was encouraged by another eventual mentor, Dr. Sara Boatman, to apply to their graduate program. Today, I work as Program Leader for Leadership and Civic Engagement (LCE) programs at the Center for Community Vitality (CV) at University of Minnesota Extension. In this role I have the opportunity to realize my lifelong interest in making leadership opportunities accessible to those of all backgrounds, stages and sectors. With the complexity of our society today, we know that mindful and skilled leadership is critically necessary to help us all move forward with success, and nowhere can this need reveal itself than in our local communities.

Guest Blog Post: Moving From Stakeholder To Network Weaver

Can an organization build a “success strategy” for moving stakeholders, those already invested in the success of an organization, up a ladder of engagement to become network weavers? To become online fundraisers, too? These were the key questions I considered and spoke about during a presentation this week at the Women in Philanthropy speaker series. The audience, primarily women in development and marketing, wanted to know how they could find, connect with, and motivate their own fans to become even more engaged online.

Guest Blog Post: Developing Evolutionary Co-Leadership to Embody a Radically New Development Paradigm

Alain Gauthier, Author of Actualizing Evolutionary Co-leadership
To evolve a Creative and Responsible Society

(Adapted from an article published in World Futures, The Journal of Global Education – Dec. 2012)

 

The purpose here is to explore why and how to develop an emerging form of integral leadership – called evolutionary co-leadership – that is responsibly dedicated to the co-evolution of life and humanity in the communities of Planet Earth. After offering some fresh distinctions about leadership, this article calls for a shift to a radically new development paradigm, and identifies key qualities and practices of evolutionary co-leadership. It then shares some views on the multiplying effects of an integral approach to co-leadership development and concludes with some avenues to disseminate this emerging leadership form, mainly to deal constructively with what Barbara Marx Hubbard1 calls the current “birthing pains” of a new civilization. read more »
