Survey for Impact Organization to Assess Customer Needs

Posted 2 months ago at 4:52 am

Hello to the Collective Impact Forum community! I am working with Pact Zimbabwe, whose mission is to create a better future for all those who are challenged by poverty and marginalization. To better assess the needs and demands of impact institutions, we request you to take a short survey on Capacity Building Trainings. This survey will help us understand how PACT can assist and empower your institution, and your responses will be very helpful in our research. Thank you for your time!

Hi. My name is Zeb Gordon and a University Student who's been tasked with explaining Collective Impact to a group in a leadership position. Are there any resources that would be helpful for a beginner to learn how to explain this concept. Thank you for any help you can provide.



Leadership Training to Prepare for Collective Impact

Posted 2 years ago at 4:52 am

My name is Monica Curls, and I am a member of the Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri.  We are developing a leadership development seminar for next year (March 2018) that is focused on helping engaged community members from all sectors (for-profit, non-profit, civic and community citizens) to develop the leadership skills necessary to successfully participate in Collective Impact work.  I see a lot of resources about how to engage in Collective Impact, but I have not seen as much about what skills those participants need to have in order to be successful contributors to these efforts. 

Can anyone recommend resources or guidance as it relates to those Collective Impact leadership skills, and also who might be engaging presenters who could speak to those skills?

I look forward to your responses.

Kindest regards,

Monica Curls

PORTLAND OR - Art of Hosting: The Art of Participatory Leadership Feb 11-13, 2015

Posted 5 years ago at 4:52 am

Upcoming Art of Hosting training in Portland, OR.  

There is an upcoming event called The Art of Participatory Leadership, which is taking place at Lewis and Clark College, February 11-13th, 2015. You can learn more about the event here:

The Art of Hosting and Collective Impact are aligned in that there is a focus on bringing new frameworks on how we can work collaboratively together. 

The Art of Participatory Leadership and the Art of Hosting training is about how to create effective meetings and practices for working better together amidst times of rapid change and high complexity. Many people are awakening to different ways of being in leadership together, moving beyond the typical traps of adversarial agendas and into processes of co-learning and participatory leadership that lead to wise action and change. 
Many practitioners and leaders are seeking processes, tools and engagement strategies that bring out the best in our communities and foster deeper collaboration. That’s what the Art of Participatory Leadership is all about and why I am really excited about being part of bringing this to our area.

The Art of Hosting is an international movement that is working to develop participatory leadership skills and practices.

Right now, we are connecting with like-minded individuals to raise awareness and get the word out about this event.

Could you help us get the word out about this event?
