I’m prepping for a small gig with a non-profit moving to a shared leadership model, and also reading a bit more on Cynefin strategy, and so there are a lot of tabs open in my browser this afternoon. instead of saving them all to an Evernote folder, I thought I’d share the best ones with you.
Doing More With More: Putting Shared Leadership Into Practice. A good case study with advice about moving from traditional leadership to shared leadership in non-profits. Talks about pitfalls and initial conditions for making the transition.
Creating a culture of shared leadership in your non-profit. Short piece that describes good starting points for moving to shared leadership across organizational functions.
Moving ideas to action
Are Better Ideas More Likely To Succeed: An Empirical Analysis of Startup Evaluation. Very interesting research paper that supports the Cynefin practices which say that expertise helps in technical (complicated) domains and expertise doe not help in complex ones.
Engagement Misdirected. My friend Crane Stookey writing about how powerful engagement comes when people engage themselves. A really nice short piece that is yet another of Crane’s excellent meditations on what we can learn from being in a boat in the sea.
Enjoy these pieces.
