Co-Creating a Sustainable, Socially-Just Future

By Petra Kuenkel

“Our world is facing unsustainable global trends-from climate change and water scarcity to energy insecurity, unfair labor practices, and growing inequality. Tackling these crises effectively requires a new form of leadership-a collective one.”

But a core question often arises: How do we get people to effectively work together for a common goal?

Author Petra Kuenkel, founder of Collective Leadership Institute (CLI), explores this question and has an answer suited for leaders from politics and corporations to public servants, sustainability experts, and social-change advocates alike.

The Art of Leading Collectively uses the visually colorful “Collective Leadership Compass” to illustrate a structure that holds all the necessary competencies for collaboration. This book also offers real-world examples and realistic solutions.

Best of Communities: 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.
