The future of teaching and learning social innovation in is likely to be shaped by several key trends and developments. South African organizational development facilitator James Taylor has harbored a strange dream for many years. “We need to create organizational leadership”. It’s strange to imagine whole organizations rushing to the school to learn together. But this idea or something might be the most important thing we can do to accelerate social innovation. Social innovation is great. We learn our way into the future. 카지노사이트
And with no one from the Future of Teaching to guide us, the social innovation movement has had to learn over time. She did so with great energy, hence the thousands of workshops, seminars, summits, institutes, retreats, incubators and fellowships that continue to shape her. Despite this apparent diversity, one learning approach dominated. Let’s call it the School of Leadership. It was generative, causing frequent flashes of light.
However, many of us working in this field have a nagging feeling that it is reaching its limits. The ancient destructive systems of the world return with uncanny ease. And we wonder if there is something inherent in the leadership school. That makes it good for brief enlightenment but less good for lasting transformation.
The School of Leadership
The School of Leadership places its hope in individual changemakers and brings them together. To learn new ways of navigating complex systems. I have helped organize some of these shows and they are eye opening. Join one and you will be part of a cohort of passionate and talented activists, social entrepreneurs, network builders and leaders. Your sense of possibility expands. You look at your work with new eyes.
They return to work refreshed and full of hope. But a longer journey turns out to be more complicated. At home, the rules and “tools” you were taught prove elusive in real life. Few of your peers seem able to relate to what you have learned. And it’s extremely difficult to know where to start in order to pull, pull or coax the system into a new state.
While you can occasionally make an inspired dent in the world, the overall experience can be frustrating and ultimately boring. You may end up feeling more alone than ever and compelled to seek support from other cohorts. Or other distracted travelers instead of the people you work with on a daily basis. 온라인카지노사이트
The art and science of paying attention to complex wholes, is in many ways the mother of social innovation. Its purpose is to help groups not only see the hidden connections and feedback loops in their systems. But also to develop new connections and practices so that the whole system begins to see and interact more fully.
Practices examine questions such as Future of Teaching. How do we encourage dialogue? Do we deal with our diversity? How do you work with authority? How can you make decisions together and leave room for individual inspiration? Shared leadership involves micro-experience in how we come together and govern, and macro-experience in shared leadership structures.
Recognizes that social innovation depends less on creative people than on creative relationships. His core practice is appreciation. The process of discovering and appreciating the strengths that already exist in people, organizations and communities.
Working in Deep Ecology
Brings us back to the reality that our human systems are not separate from our larger natural ecosystems. It enhances our ability to learn from nature – biomimicry – and to love and connect with nature – biophilia. Emphasis is also placed on transparency of our collective impacts, good or bad. On the living systems of which we are a part.
Guides the other four abilities to explore common meaning. Defining purpose as a question, not an answer. Allows us to seek the deeper “why” and helps us discover where we want to go together. 바카라사이트
