Change Makers

I’ve been dipping into a great book called Getting to Maybe, How the world is changed, as I inch along on my thesis. Here the authors offer wise words for changemakers. A leader is only one part of the equation.

A leader often intensifies or clarifies communication. In this sense she may act as a powerful attractor. But unless the communication resonates at some level with local experience, the self -organizing pattern—or flow—will not emerge.

– Westley, Zimmerman, Quinn Patton (2007), Getting to Maybe, pp 99-100
