The Foundation for Intentional Community is pleased to offer the third volume of the selection of the best articles that have appeared over the last 20 years in our flagship publications: Communities magazine and Communities Directory.

We’ve distilled what we consider the most insightful and helpful articles on the topics that you–our readers–have told us you care about most, and have organized them into 15 collections. This is the third volume of this amazing digital publication.

Volume III. Leadership, Power, And Membership

One of the ways in which progressive groups tend to be chronically underdeveloped relative to conservative groups is in the area of power and leadership. While communities are full of people with personal experience of what they don’t want, few groups have taken the time to clearly define a model of healthy leadership and appropriate uses of power.

This set of 16 articles supplies insights into Leadership, Power, and Membership; including how to understand power in cooperative settings, how to respond when power is being misused, how to define the leadership you want to attract and celebrate, and how to be discerning and pro-active in membership selection and integration (hint: if a group tells you they have no power issues, be afraid).

This digital issue includes articles on:

  • Decision Making in Practice
  • Leadership Decisions and Majority-Rule Democracy
  • Dealing With Power Imbalances
  • Finding Your Role in Community
  • Facing New Members
  • Flexibility vs. Fairness
  • And much more!

You can buy this volume of The Best of Communities collection for only $10!

All 15 issues of this collection can be found here, sold individually or in a bargain-priced bundle.
