  • Shared leadershipinterchangable& equal roles
  • You do not grow a plant by instructing it to do so, or worse by pulling on it.You do not get people to innovate by tasking them with innovating. You grow a plant by providing the Soil, the Space, the Sun… and letting it happen (see the innovation gardener). You foster innovation by providing:the Soil - access to internal and external knowledge and experiences where people can extend their roots - the Space – the autonomy, as opposed to breathing down their neckthe Sun – letting people draw their energy from their own passions, - enablethe Strategy – direction and challenge. - watering it - participate… and letting it happen.
  • And condition in order to enable peoples stories to be heard
  • Connective leadership: participate + facilitate + enable
