Well as the last blog post seems to date back to 2016 I thought I'd add my little piece here too...if only to keep thing current!
I've been researching and networking within the social innovations lab scene and I've found that they tend to rather insular and poor at sharing 'best practice' (i.e. stuff that they have found works) between each other.

One of the most important leadership innovations of the last two decades is a model for assessing whether we are working with technical fixes or adaptive challenges. In the complex environment that we are experiencing, we can buy into the idea that everything is an adaptive challenge that requires an adaptive leadership approach. While we do face many… Continue

A posting that I recently shared on my website:
I have been involved in a leadership role in the United Church of Canada from a very young age. Throughout that time, my participation in communities of faith has provided a container to engage in many, many conversations about things that matter: ideas, emotions,… Continue

Painting the portrait of a cute pet would be the best ever gift to a pet-lover. If you have a pet and would like to bring it to life on canvas to recreate that love and bond you share, you can try finding professional art classes or exclusive canvas painting classes that can help you create one. When you are in New York, looking for interesting things to do in NYC, such art classes could be the ideal activity, especially… Continue

You must be aware of the fact that team building activities are highly important to enhance the productivity of a workforce. Unless a team is able to connect, it is difficult for them to reach out to each other with problems or queries. Therefore, an organization should concentrate on effective and fun team building activities that are effective both in terms of budget and time.
In fact, corporate team building… Continue

In the Engagement Circles and World Cafes I facilitate, a recurring pattern is emerging. This pattern is a weave of two threads. The first thread carries with it the desire we have to bring our humanity to our organizations and our work… Continue

Health care organizations today are facing enormous challenges, not the least of which is long range planning in the face of acute systemic uncertainty. In the United States, The Affordable Care Act has been praised by some and vilified by others. The fact is the verdict is not yet known. This “not knowing” fuels the rampant uncertainty. Anyone who works on the financial side of health care institutions…

Regardless of where on the spectrum of formal structure a present day meeting may lie, a simple yet powerful assumption most often hangs in the shadows: “Silence means consent!” These words are specifically spelled out in Robert’s Rules of Order. Even meetings that take place with far less structure and order tend to make this assumption.
“Anyone have anything to add? Any further comments?…..(silence)… Good then, it’s… Continue

It is only fair that this post echoed the title of the previous one. After all, it was the root cause of a funny happening.
But i'm getting ahead of myself.
I'm just back from a two days gathering in Bruxelles, bringing together some 70-80 practionners from across the EU Commission and then some. The external practionners were mostly people who have been accompanying the process at the Commission (the usual suspects: Ria, Tatiana, Maria S. from Greece, etc) or have a link with… Continue

For many of us, once past the initial woaw of discovering participatory leadership, there comes a time when we despair to make it work - because we soon find out that the rest of the world hasn't caught up with us yet.
Keeping the flame alive is not an easy task, and yet we need to do it because it is the only way forward.
Soon or later, our efforts will pay - we just need to hang on and make sure we're still around when they do.
Here are some… Continue
