The Collective Impact Forum podcast will share with you stories, insights, and expertise from those in the field working on collective impact efforts. By working across sectors to share experiences and knowledge, together we can help accelerate the effectiveness and further adoption of the collective impact approach.

In episode 3 of the Collective Impact Forum podcast, Forum director Jennifer Splansky Juster talks with John Kania, who coauthored the 2011 article “Collective Impact,” and who recently published the new article “The Dawn of System Leadership” in the Stanford Social Innovation Review with coauthors Peter Senge and Hal Hamilton. In today’s interview, John discusses further about system leadership and how it can tie into the collective impact approach towards tackling social change issues.
