Illustrations About ‘Community’ in Social Leadership

Continuing to #WorkOutLoud as i complete the final illustrations for the 2nd Edition of the Social Leadership Handbook: today, three core illustrations about ‘Community‘. These three images accompany the section where we consider where the communties are that we inhabit (both formal and social ones), the purpose they serve and the role we play. The core messaging is that Social Leaders inhabit many types of community, some that they create, some that they lead, many that they serve within, and that their role is very fluid within them.

Social Leadership - Community - Location

Our communities are sometimes hidden, sometimes fully social, but often in some middle space.

Social Leadership - Community - Purpose

The purpose of these communities is many and varied: some are for enlightenment, some for ‘sense making’, some to subvert hierarchal authority and control. We need to engage in different ways in each.

Social Leadership - Community - Role

Finally, the role we take in virtual communities, under a Social Leadership context, is often more fluid than in physical spaces. This illustration explores the different roles, and the way we often move between them. Social Leaders rarely lead through direct action.
