Exploring the ‘SOCIAL’ dimensions of identity, space, learning, innovation and leading.
My work is profoundly rooted in creating connections and discerning the social context of our ‘being’ and ‘doing’. There’s lots to explore and learn: to apply and integrate. And to practice….this is fundamental to my work as a mentor/coach, consultant, facilitator, community player.
I’m exploring my own understanding and theoretical knowledge of the ‘SOCIAL’ to inform my/our practice[s}. I’m learning in collaboration with others. I’ve begun to explore the body of research and practice that focuses on:
• The social space in which we live, interact and create relationship with other people, societies and surroundings. It includes our families, workplaces, institutions, our communities….the physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual. Our place.
• Our social location, the dynamic social and personal experiences people encounter, assimilate and/or integrate.
• Our social identity, the person’s sense of who they are based on the groups to which they belong.
that are the basis of how we can learn, lead and innovate.
• Social Learning theory provides an explanation of how we learn when we are in social contexts.
• Social Leadership theory suggests that leadership is shared through the interactions or social exchanges of the leader, followers, and the situation
• Social Innovation -novel solutions to a social problem that is more effective, efficient, sustainable, or just than current solutions. The value created accrues primarily to society rather than to private individuals.
