Philanthropy’s Reflective Practices is a project of The Giving Practice, the national consulting firm of Philanthropy Northwest. Our purpose is to help you build what you bring to the work.
Collaborative initiatives are the rage. They have opened up research on what characteristics are needed to foster a collective leadership. Peter Senge and his colleagues reflect on three core capabilities they found to be integral to success: 1) the ability to see the larger system; 2) fostering reflection and more generative conversations; and 3) shifting the collective focus from reactive problem solving to co-creating the future.
