What Does It Mean to Lead in Emergent and Transformational Ways?
What does it mean to lead in an emergent way? How do we support ourselves and our collaboratives to be open to new and transformational ways of working?

Join us on Tuesday, June 7 at 2pm ET for the second session in a new three-part virtual office hour series.

In this virtual office hour, John Kania and Katherine Milligan, coauthors of the recent SSIR article, “The Relational Work of Systems Change,” will be unpacking your questions, surfacing the inherent tensions and challenges that arise when working in emergent ways, and sharing practices to navigate through them.

Bring your questions and we’ll spend the hour going through as many as we can to help provide guidance and clarity to your work.

What’s a Virtual Office Hour? The Virtual Office Hour is another way to respond to the burning questions of collective impact practitioners. The office hours are casual Q&A sessions: no formal presentations, but rather an opportunity to spend the hour answering questions about a specific topic.

Can't make the time, but interested in this topic? Registering means we'll send you a copy of the recording, normally within 24 hours of the live event.
