  29. 29. 6 WEadership Superpowers ADOPT A WIDE ANGLE VIEW Description Leaders look for new ways to apply their resources and expertise. They focus on solving important community problems. Resources Cited -  -  CodeforAmerica.org on repurposing solutions GitHub.com for sharing solutions -  http://inmaps.linkedinlabs.com/network for mapping networks Monitor Institute’s Gather guide: http://www.monitorinstitute.com/downloads/ what-we-think/gather/ GATHER_The_Art_and_Science_of_Effective _Convening.pdf -  BUILD DIVERSE NETWORKS Leaders collaborate with partners creatively, using informal networks alongside traditional hierarchies. EMBRACE OPENNESS -  Leaders share the role of leadership with staff, partners, and the public. They use social technologies -  -  to listen, inform, and collaborate. -  ENCOURAGE EXPERIMENTATION Kiva.org for small business lending P2PU.org for un-school example Quora.com for knowledge sharing platform http://meshing.it/companies for shareconomy companies AmericanSamoaRenewal.org for video Prototyping Framework (NESTA) http://www.nesta.org.uk/news_and_features/ assets/features/prototyping_framework Leaders know their industry needs new ideas, and new ideas need testing. -  -  ADD UNIQUE VALUE Leaders find ways their unique contributions can make a real difference in their communities. Those who add value remain relevant. -  CULTIVATE NEXT GENERATION LEADERS Cloudgate http://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/dca/ supp_info/millennium_park_artarchitecture.html#cloud Leaders build skills and share knowledge in order to develop new leaders in their fields and in their communities. -  Embrace multigenerational workplace and boardroom Not everyone under 30 is “techie,” but young people have much to offer -
