If you are coming to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you are coming because your liberation is tied up with mine, then let us work together.

Shared Leadership Framework™

Our definition of Shared Leadership

Shared leadership is the practice of bringing out the greatest capacity in everyone by empowering us all to be responsible for and engaged in the vibrancy and high function of the whole. This is a fundamental shift in how we understand and apply power and leadership.

Attitudes of Sharing Leadership

The care to show up, walk our talk, to be embodied.

Love, trust, presence, commitment to practice and BE the change

To be authentic, real and genuine in all that we are and all that we do.

Humility, self-reflection, willingness to be surprised

To be open, with ourselves and with each other.

Radical receptivity, play, curiosity, celebration, gratitude

To be uncomfortable, to hold the tension that leads to breakthrough, transformation & wisdom.

Vulnerability, courage, strength, steadfastness

Four Pillars of Inclusion

Humanity: We recognize each other and meet as equals in the best of our humanity - what exists at the core of us - before relating through roles, status and expertise.

Equality: We relate as equal learning partners in full acknowledgement of what we can contribute and learn from each other.

Wholeness: We are fully ourselves, wherever we are. We are also conscious of the concentric relationship and impact of self to group, group to goal/mission, mission to the world, and the world to all of life.

Collective Wisdom: We know more together than any of us does on our own. We cultivate the collective wisdom of the group by honoring the natural gifts and talents of each and every person.
