One of my enduring passions is implementing my study of collaboration. It is so much fun (for me anyway :)) to bring your leadership skills into community building. More accurately, what is fun is to intentionally build a collaborative community. The structure of community that I am practicing is from a horizontal template rather than a vertical (hierarchical) template. It applies as well in the business environment as well. In a horizontal team structure each of us on a team are on the same level as all the rest. Your designated job does not change. The only way that a horizontal template will work is if everyone participating shares in the ownership of whatever the structure’s intention is. Along with community building and in the business environment this template for ‘getting something done’ applies with team work with corporations, circles of men and women, families and with personal relationships. It even applies with your relationship with yourself when you make your intellect, intuition and emotional system have equal validity in your self inquiry.
In one of my groups It was asked, “What have you done to empower women?” As I can do, I waxed passionate :). I realize that what I answered is pretty core in all my consulting work. So here is my answer..Comment, share and like at will!
