Can we really make sustainable change without the stakeholders? New approaches demand that leaders actively involve those that are closest to the work and those that are the intended beneficiaries. Sharedwork is a platform to build relationships across decision maker, practitioner and consumer groups in supprot of common goals, better understanding and learning partnerships
If we want active engagement, we must invest in developing knowledge and understanding among potential partners. Bridging tools are designed to be introductory pieces that convey critical information about a topic of interest and invite participants to share the information within their networks. Bridging tools create access to information so that stakeholders can move beyond receiving information and truly engage.
Some leaders know that real progress lies in changing individual behavior. When individuals change, practice changes and systems change. These leaders recognize that perspective on issues vary. They accept that real progress demands learning from and with stakeholders who are impacted by the issue. Leading by Convening is the name we give this kind of adaptive leadership.
