Within the social sector, change is occurring more rapidly and unpredictably than in the past. In this environment of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity; adaptation must be constant and responsive—evolutionary. It must also be comprehensive and often disruptive—revolutionary. The Alliance for Strong Families and Communities rEvolutionary™ Leadership Model helps human-serving leaders rise to this profound challenge.
The rEvolutionary™ Leadership Model enables leaders to go beyond the everyday management of programs and services to address adaptive issues and systems challenges for long-term, lasting change. The Alliance will train your team to become a rEvolutionary systems leaders, showing you how to invest in the four internal generative capacities:
- Cognitive Capacity. The conscious, intellectual ability to anticipate, perceive, understand, and analyze environmental factors that drive the need for change
- Emotional Capacity. The ability to emotionally process environmental factors that might lead to change and to experience the resulting empathy, passion, courage, and resolve that motivate the leader to work for change
- Spiritual Capacity. The ability to clearly envision a better future that can be brought about through change and the will to believe that achieving that future state is not only attainable but a moral obligation; it is the response to a higher calling or purpose
- Behavioral Capacity. The ability to foresee and implement the tangible, observable, and measurable actions that will set change in motion; it is the action and management portion of leadership
What We Offer
As leaders continuously invest in these capacities, they are further enabled to manage and lead meaningful change, which flows through the self, team, organization, and communities and into the larger ecosystem of leaders, teams, organizations, and communities.
In partnership with the Alliance’s Center on Leadership, a customized training and support solution can be tailored to meet the needs of your organization’s leadership development.
