Welcome to the Social Leadership: A Different Approach MOOC. This interactive 4 week course will start on November 5, 2018 and will develop your skills in Social Leadership and includes activities that focus on the development and application of Social Leadership in the humanitarian context. In this first pilot of the course we are looking for a group to help co-create some of the content to help make it relevant to the humanitarian sector.
Starting soon over the 4 weeks we will explore Julian Stodd's NET Model of Social Leadership. Designed to develop Social Leadership capability for individuals and teams this course will guide you on your journey through the Social Age and allow you to experience social collaboration and co-creation.
What is Social Leadership?
Social Leadership is a style of leadership fit for the Social Age, the world of constant change we live in today. It is a form of authority earned within our communities, and founded upon our reputation. It can complement our formal authority, within a hierarchy, but it is also available to those with no formal power at all.
Social Leaders help an organisation to thrive, by connecting the power of the community to the everyday challenges of work. Social Leadership is built upon humility, fairness and kindness, but it’s no soft form of power: it’s a power that is earned and, because of that, it carries great weight. It’s built upon trust.
Is this course for me?
