During this gathering we will engage you as we explore three provocative questions related to the three different guides:
1) What community results is (or might) your leadership work contribute to and how will you know if you have made a difference?
2) How do you (or might you) shift the focus of your recruitment from individuals to the composition of the cohort? 

3) What are you doing (or might you do) in the design of your leadership program to nurture an emerging network?    


We will not be doing a presentation; the session will be very interactive so we encourage you to read the Leadership and Collective Impact Report before attending. If you would like to share your work in small group discussions as a either a case study or in the spirit of a consultative session seeking advice about what it would look like to experiment with the ideas presented in Leadership and Collective Impact, please contact If you don't volunteer don't be surprised if we reach out to you.
