The Leadership Covenant: Essential Factors for Developing Cocreative Relationships within a Learning Community.
Guzman, Nadyne
This paper discusses barriers encountered by leaders when they attempt to implement change and redirect the collective focus in groups. It describes co-creative relationships that occur when leaders and followers work together in a reciprocally responsible relationship based on a common purpose. The process of covenanting toward a common purpose, translating that intention into reality, and achieving success through the creation of synergistic relationships is foundational to changing individuals and systems. The factors essential to the development of such outcomes are described in a model for organizational and community efficacy. The model is comprised of structural, facilitative, and harmonizing elements. Structural elements include participants, structure, process, experiences, and culture. Facilitative elements are common purpose, communication, change, trust, and ritual. Balance provides the harmonizing elements. A process through which the common good might be identified within a diverse population is summarized. The ultimate responsibility for optimal implementation of the model rests on individual participants. (LMI)
