Social Leadership Illustrations: Reputation and the Jigsaw of Community

#WorkingOutLoud today, sharing two more illustrations from the forthcoming book, ‘Social Leadership – my 1st 100 days’. First, an illustration for the activity on ‘Generosity’, which considers how Social Leaders are generous with more than money: they share time, resources, connections, and do so without expectation of reciprocity. Here’s the illustration and, following it, an extract of the activity for that day:

Social Leadership 100 - Generosity

Day 5: Generosity

Social Leaders help others to succeed: who can you help today, and how?

I can do this: [ANSWER]

Our Social Authority is awarded to us by the community: it’s not transactional, but rather based upon the reputation that we earn.

The investment we make into our community, through our generosity, is not made in expectation of immediate reciprocity, but rather to help the community grow.

Social Leadership 100 - Jigsaw

Following that, there’s a section on ‘The Gig Economy’, which this illustration relates to, talking about the jigsaw of skills that you have yourself, and which exist in your wider community.

    Generosity – giving of time is key for leaders and colleagues, but does not always happen at the right time or in the right way.
    A previous mentor of mine would often remind me to be ‘selfish with time, but gracious with people’ to give time appropriately and focus on developing people rather than just the process or intended result
