Transformational change is possible

Collective Impact, Publications

Getting to transformational change, getting to possible, is not the easy path. In this article, Liz Weaver calls for a new kind of leader and a new way of collaborating and working collectively. She reminds us that there are frameworks for communities to follow, but no step-by-step manual. But, if we lead with a system approach, embrace a framework,
consider our community’s readiness, focus on data and measurement, communicate and engage, and remain future oriented by asking what’s next, that creative tension will push our communities to consider both the process of community change and also the product. This article teaches us that there are challenges in this work, but they are not insurmountable.
