The pandemic has put us all in a prolonged state of uncertainty. As Marshall Ganz teaches: 'leadership is accepting responsibility for enabling others to achieve shared purpose in the face of uncertainty'. But this can be hard when we're struggling to find solid ground ourselves!
In shaky times it can help to tune into feelings and respond to our own needs (see Activist Wellbeing resources below), connect with others to make meaning out of the situation (such as through Reset Reading Group), and strengthen skills and knowledge (videos and articles linked to in this newsletter, and much more on the Commons). Let's take care of ourselves and each other as we ride waves of crisis and change!
Want to learn about how you can use the Commons Social Change Library to improve the effectiveness of your organisation or campaign? For Purpose is hosting a session on that topic via Zoom this Thursday morning. You're also welcome to contact us for tips or organise a similar session for your team.
Did you know that the Commons provides customised services for organisations? We can gather resources, put together bookclub and study group programs, research issues, advise on archiving, write up case studies and more. Reply to this email or contact Holly Hammond to discuss options.
