WEADERSHIP: A (Workforce) Leader's Guide to the Future
Something very significant is happening in our communities: with
an economy in turmoil, a labor market in flux and public resources
shrinking, community leaders are finding new ways to work with their
colleagues, citizens, and neighbors, as well as their peers all over
They are using new tools to connect across sectors, disciplines,
jurisdictions, and fields of practice. By working together online and
offline, they can accomplish more than they can alone. This is a new
kind of leadership.
For the past 12 months, the Enhancing Workforce Leadership
initiative team has explored this approach among leaders in the field
of workforce development, documenting six practices that comprise what
we call Weadership.
Now, we're inviting you in on the fun by introducing you to the project's key resources.
There's a lot here, but we suggest starting out with the following:
- The project's Video Trailer
- About us
- The Weadership Framework (brief overview)
- The Weadership Guide (above) offers a comprehensive description of the six practices of leadership. It includes a Social Media Guide and points to opportunities for policy makers, funders, practitioners, and aspiring innovators use social innovation,
"Gov2.0", crowdsourcing, even gaming, strategies to help advance workforce development goals in their communities. The Guide is available as a PDF (see below) and can be ordered in print form as a Blurb book at http://bit.ly/pnlc8p
[NOTE: The Blurb edition was prepared by SPR without the use of any ETA resources as a convenience for workforce leaders who are interested in this project.]
