Found this morning on Network Weaver:
Over the past few years, I have been increasingly influenced by the concept of “weaving” — what for me means connecting people, ideas, and projects to foster more collaborative social change.
Weaving is a skill, a mindset, and a way of being. More art than science, it requires deep listening, being responsive to interests and needs, and “sensing” opportunities to bring people or projects together.
Nice post on a set of practical strategies for increasing connections and exchanges at work. One of the more powerful ways to shift patterns in complex systems and catalyze new behaviours is to work with the constraints you can get your hands on. For folks without a lot of power or authority in a system, weaving – a lovely generative image, by the way – offers ways to do this.
