Social Leadership

A new style of leadership for the Social Age: reputation based, founded in our communities
Tell us your story

Social Leadership is for your organisation

In the Social Leadership Handbook, Julian Stodd proposes a new model for Leadership, enabling us to unlock creativity, collaborate widely, to act fairly.

Earning Reputation

Social Leadership is based upon our reputation, earned within our communities. If we act humbly, with authenticity, if we are kind and generous, we will earn the reputation we deserve.

Engaged Community

We exist in many communities: some formal, some entirely social. Social Leaders learn to operate in each of these, using their Social Authority. In some they lead, in others they learn, in many they support, setting aside their formal mantle of leadership.

Social Capital

Social Capital is our ability to survive and thrive in the Social Age: Social Leaders have it, and help others gain it. They empower and enable. With high Social Capital, they co-create and collaborate widely. Engaged and connected in communities.
