My colleagues, Heather McLeod Grant and Adene Sacks, have just published a new workbook called “Leading Systems Change.” The book describes a new approach to leadership and community engagement in the Central Valley, that has empowered local leaders to tackle a host of issues facing the community in an entirely new way–from designing education programs and services for immigrant communities to law enforcement reform, and boosting entrepreneurship in the region. Overall, the program led to over 100 collaborations and its impact is ongoing.
But this is more than a simple report on a highly successful leadership program that takes a systems approach to serving an underserved community, it is the authors playbook of how to design and implement a program, including facilitation recipes for designing meetings.
When I design and facilitate meeting for clients, board meetings, or as part of a workshop, webinar or other training, I’m always looking for new ideas for facilitation and interactive processes.
That’s why I’ve keep a good list of meeting facilitation playbooks such as Leading Systems Change handy for inspiration:
- Emerging Leaders Playbook Toolkit
- Sharing Knowledge Wiki
- MindTools Team Management Tools
- Lucid Meeting Agenda Templates
- IAF Methods Database
- Innovating for People Handbook: Design Thinking Methods
- Liberating Structures
- Collection of Nonprofit Design Thinking Playbooks
