I find myself in Toronto, illustrating. ‘Social Leadership – my 1st 100 days‘ is my next book, a practical guide to developing skills across a hundred practical activities. As the name implies, it’s going to need 100 illustrations, so i thought it would #WorkOutLoud and share them as i draw them. Today, working around my conference commitments, i’ve done the first one, which is about ‘choosing your space’, part of your foundations.
To put it in context, here is the ‘activity’ from the book itself:
Day 1: Are you content?
Look at the Organisation around you, the Organisation that you work for.
Are you content with what you see?
Is it fair? Is it equal? Is it innovative and successful?
Is it ready to face tomorrow?
Is it adapted to the realities of the Social Age?
If you could change one thing, what would it be?
I would change: [ANSWER]
Ask this questions of someone else: do you have the same answer, or a different one? Across the organisation, would your answers be the same or different? Where is the space to have these conversations? Where is your space to drive change?
It worked nicely, sharing all the illustrations as i went, for the Social Leadership Handbook 2nd edition, so i will do the same for this one. Aim is to have the work published on 1st April, so back to the drawing board for me…
