Network Organizing

Our colleague Bill Traynor describes essential inputs and outcomes of network organizing. See what you think!

In a recent presentation to the Ways and Means Staff of The Community Builders, we discussed the primary inputs and resulting added value that the Network Organizing practice can bring to a service environment. This slide captures the essence of this.

That in any service environment, if we can design Spaces that welcome and feed aspirations, Forms that encourage people to engage in reciprocity (mutual-support) and Practices that help people connect over differences, then we will see important added value in 3 areas: People showing up with their best stuff – energy, commitment, helpfulness and generosity. People helping other people achieve the outcomes that we all want. And people contributing as co-creators, leaders and stewards of the environment that we are creating.

    Resonates with me! Can we start giving examples of each? We have them in our practice!
