Social Leadership Outside of Organisations

Social Leadership Outside of Organisations

By Michele Lee Golden , February 2015

For her Clore Social research, Michele Lee Golden wrote a thought piece exploring the question: What does social leadership look like outside of organisations?  Her aim was to offer a different perspective on social leadership.  The question arose from her personal experience as a freelancer.  She was also motivated by the scale of the social challenges we face today which will require action and leadership from people everywhere, not just those within organisations.

As a prompt for discussion, Michele suggests seven ways that people can lead social change from outside organisations.  She calls on the social sector to show the way to a greater diversity of thinking about leaders and leadership, both inside and outside of organisations.
