#WorkingOutLoud on the 1st 100 days of Social Leadership Book

I’m working all this week on a short follow up to the Social Leadership Handbook, entitled ‘Social Leadership: the 1st 100 days‘. As the name implies, this is a more practical text, outlining activities for 100 separate days, based around the nine core aspects of Social Leadership. It’s intended to take a few minutes a day, and provide a personal narrative of the journey once it’s completed.

Social Leadership - the first 100 days

Can you learn to be a Social Leader in 100 days? Well: part of it is mindset, which you can arguably attain on day one, whilst part of it is specific skills, such as ‘storytelling‘, which may take a lifetime to master.

The NET Model of Social Leadership

The barrier to Social Leadership is often momentum: we feel we are simply too busy to change, so we don’t change. It’s not enough to do what we’ve always done and call it ‘social‘. To be a Social Leader, we need to be thoughtful, reflective and, above all else, willing to learn, willing to change, willing to help others to do the same.

I’ve started exploring options to use Kickstarter or Unbound to crowd fund the book. I haven’t done this before, but it may be an interesting exercise in community engagement!
