Highlighted Activity: Leading Change
Submitted by Ana on Mon, 04/20/2009 - 12:59.
An introduction to thinking and talking about how others perceive change.
When we do a training, we find it’s especially helpful for everyone to give each activity a little bit of context. So that’s what we’re trying to do here – bring a bit of our training interaction to the Internet by highlighting a great activity from one of our toolkits and explaining how it may fit into the greater scheme of community change work. We hope to do this on a regular basis, so check back often – we also want to hear about your experiences with an activity and a theme, so please comment and share your thoughts!
This activity, “Leading Change,” is part of our Learning and Leading toolkit, a resource that pools the collective knowledge of the Youth Leadership Development Initiative (YLDI). Leading Change is a remarkably simple activity that can provoke truly deep consideration and conversation about how leaders can effectively deal with change.
We’ve found – both in our work with community organizations and in our own personal experiences – that change often feels large, significant and obvious to the person who made it; observers’ awareness of this change, however, doesn’t always match up. That said, don’t be alarmed if the change you make in your community isn’t immediately noticed by others – you must remind and enlist others in your change. This activity, “Leading Change,” is an introduction to thinking about changes.
What will you do to enlist others in supporting your change?
