In the past few years we’ve witnessed bottom-up social movements like the Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street, the rise of community-based companies like Facebook and Red Hat, and the ever-flattening landscape of business, government, and society. These social revolutions prove that we’re operating in a new kind of environment.
We’re playing in the social era — an era in which rigid, bureaucratic structures are fast losing ground to nimble, grassroots movements driven by purpose. Communities are replacing authority. Culture is more important than hierarchy. And innovation - not uniformity - is the asset worth striving for.
The groups that succeed in this social era work like movements: they produce contagious content, share cultural practices, connect partners, and work from bold purpose. Through this approach, community-based 21st century organizations are changing the world.
Join New Kind for an introduction to strategies and tools that will help you and your organization make the most of the social era.
