What does this mean for personal and collective action? This was the core focus for the learning lab 2 principals as part of their lab on Friday. They revisited relevant leadership concepts explored as part of the labs this year, to personalise and contextualise, using them as a central focus for change within their learning communities.
All participants chose relevant statements from the article Being the Change: Building Communities of Collaboration and Co-inspiration for Systemic Change to identify personal and collective connections in relation to their current reality and preferred future. Leaders were not only able to take the time to think deeply about leadership within their own communities in relation to a core priority, but also personal leadership capabilities which help or hinder the process.
We will continue to explore personal mastery, team learning and systems thinking when the leaders from all labs meet together on the 7th and 8th of November to crystalize and prototype possibilities for LESNW for the emerging future.
