Today we will revisit Mara’s list of questions, specifically, “How can we think of leadership outside of organizations – in communities and society?”
If we think of leadership as being intentional, then I’m not sure that there is a huge difference between leading inside or outside your work. Be fully present, help people grow, help things get better.
I’ve let this email sit for a couple of hours to see if other thoughts would arise, but I think it really is simple.
One thing to add is that leading outside of work can be facilitated by being a connector. Connect people with each other, or with groups or organizations. Connect groups and organizations with each other. This is a way of achieving wu-wei, doing without doing. By connecting the right people/groups/organizations, you set things in motion without directly intervening.
Do good and be well,
