The Frames of Leadership

East or west if you have this skills you are best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Julian Stodd's Learning Blog

The Social Age rewards agility: the ability to frame and reframe problems, to deploy our communities and experiment, question and react at speed. It’s less about mastery of process, more about communication and collaboration. Social Leaders demonstrate a rounded skill set: a holistic mastery of these skills and a consistent demonstration of these behaviours over time. Reputation is founded upon this consistency.

The Frames of Leadership We can reduce leadership to be viewed within different frames, but it’s only in the holistic application that we can be effective.

In traditional terms, it’s a mixture of hard and soft skills: sure, there is an element of technology that needs to be mastered, but there is very little process. Social Leadership is more about storytelling, sharing and reciprocating than it is about performance reviews and competency frameworks.

Healthcare Radicals: Change in the NHS

Julian Stodd's Learning Blog

Introducing momentum is the thing: starting the ball rolling. Inertia is the enemy of change, but overcoming it can be overwhelming. In the Social Age, the ecosystem is in our favour though: amplification and momentum are inherent in socially led approaches. Engage with communities, build reputation and social authority, lead socially and effect co-created change. Simple. Well, almost…

Linking formal and social elements in change Linking formal and social elements in change

It’s a matter of balance: formal structure and a clear strategic imperative aligned with socially moderated thinking and leadership. The organisation creates the space: the community gives it momentum within a frame.

I’m fascinated by the changes underway in the NHS right now: the Healthcare Radical approach is empowering individuals throughout (and alongside) the formal structure to champion change. The very word ‘radical‘ is emotive and using it in an organisational context, brave. The foundation of the project is to…
