1 Chapter 6 Collaborative Leadership Perry C. Hanavan

2 Collaborative Leadership - is a process or method to guide a diverse group of people to find solutions to complex problems that affect them all

3 Collaborative Leadership It is leadership shown by a group that is acting together to solve agreed upon issues. It uses supportive and inclusive methods to ensure that all people affected by a decision are part of the change process. It requires a new notion of power...the more power we share, the more power we have to use.

4 Social Capital (Chapter 1) - refers to those stocks of social trust, norms and networks that people can draw upon to solve common problems. Networks of civic engagement, such as neighborhood associations, sports clubs, and cooperatives, are an essential form of social capital, and the denser these networks, the more likely that members of a community will cooperate for mutual benefit.

5 Types of Capital "Social capital adheres in the set of relationships among people and those relationships are productive to the extent that they are based on a common set of expectations, a set of shared values, and a sense of trust among people." "Financial capital is based on money," "whereas human capital is the stock of knowledge and skills individuals have, based on what their education or experience has given them.“ President Bush referred to using his “political capital” after winning re-election in which he is pushing for social security reform

6 Social Capital in Schools Various school reform approaches are noteworthy The Algebra Project District 4 in East Harlem develop various strategies for: mobilizing networks of parents and developing their leadership capacities; incorporating parents into multidisciplinary teams; bringing adult education and services into school buildings; developing student internships and service learning in community organizations; organizing oral history and other projects around the stories of community leaders; involving community and local business leaders in mentoringAlgebra Project Schools build on the notion of creating a "conspiracy of the entire community" to educate the child

11 Wants, Needs, Desires Parents, Teachers and Administrators have essentially the same goals –Each has an interest in student success "In the best of all possible worlds, community members would participate to a high degree in all aspects of their community life. Service organizations such as welfare would find many better ways to involve the people they serve in decisionmaking and in the formation of policy. In the worst-case scenario, social service professionals sit in their offices in high-rise buildings in the city and dispense forms."

12 Wehlage on Social Captital "If collaboration is such a good idea, why is it so hard to do?" "The successful programs try to serve youth in general instead of identifying who is at risk and who is not at risk and then only serve those labeled at risk. Why not just serve them all?" "Who wants to go to the clinic if it is only for kids who are pregnant or have something wrong with them? If you create a different environment, everybody wants to come to it."
