The challenge of moving from ‘intent’ into ‘action’ is one that lies at the heart of countless self help books on habit formation and change programmes. Intent is easy to have, action harder, not specifically because it requires us to do something new, but often because it requires us to stop doing something old.
I mention this as i’m running a full week Innovation workshop in Munich, and everyone has great intent. We are a group of excited individuals. But that gap, from intent into action, is the one that kills organisations. This week i am focussed on how Social Leaders may support their intent by building a social movement, an engaged Social Community.
With the support, the sense making, and the moderation, of this community, we may find it easier to make this journey.
