Just short posts this week: i’m in the Philippines working on a first draft of the Social Leadership Handbook. True to the principles of the Social Age, it will be an agile draft: likely updated each year (we do, after all, live in Harold Jarche’s state of constant beta).
It’s structured in two parts: the foundations of the Social Age, in which i explore the evolved nature of work, the social business and socially collaborative technology, and the second half which is a full run through the three dimensions and nine skills of the NET Model of Social Leadership.
I’m aiming to complete the draft this week (much of the second half is based on the series of articles i’ve been publishing here over the last six months on each dimension and skill.
It’s always fun to take time out of your routine for reflection and writing and i feel lucky to be able to do it with such a supportive community around me.
And for those of you who are following the progress of the other book (Learning and working in the Social Age, don’t worry: the first two chapters are complete and i aim to write two more while in Singapore next week… but don’t hold me to it…)
