The journey towards Social Leadership takes us through nine stages: we CURATE our space, choosing the stage we will perform from. We develop our STORYTELLING skills, learning how to structure the narrative and tell stories that are relevant and timely, interpreting the world around us to create meaning. We SHARE those stories wisely.
Social Leaders work around Engagement to build their REPUTATION, founded upon their stories and shared in COMMUNITIES, where they actively participate in the discussion. Their AUTHORITY is based upon their reputation, not hierarchy or position.
Social Leaders recognise the facilitating power of Technology and have high SOCIAL CAPITAL, as well as actively developing that in others. They CO-CREATE meaning, recognising that the process of consulting and participating in community makes them stronger and they COLLABORATE widely, with humility, with no expectation of reciprocity.
Social Leaders are agile, fit for the Social Age. These are skills that we can develop, but they’re based on recognising that the fundamental nature of work and learning is changing. We have to master the Foundation of the Social Age to be true Social Leaders.
