Leadership and management are evolving in fundamental ways, driven by changing access to information brought on by technology. Information and people can no longer be controlled through centralized governance structures and, at the same time, are more susceptible to being controlled through their relationships, cultures, and influences.
That shift has been disorienting to both those in leadership and management roles and to individuals, as we collectively work to understand this enormous shift in how power is exerted. Communities are now seen as critical governance approaches to transform organizations and culture.

- Communities Propel Engagement
- Communities Transform Organizations
- Community Leadership is Unevenly Distributed
