What Do You Mean When You Use the Term "Leadership"?


To some how The Transition defines leadership might be considered "new". We believe:

  1. It is an action anyone can take, not a position a few hold.
  2. It is about taking radical personal and social responsibility to work with others on common goals.
  3. It is the practice of values that engage diverse individuals and groups to work together effectively.

We know not everyone can lead in every context, but everyone does have the capacity to step up, take responsibility, and work with others to make progress on the issues they care about. It is evident that historically collaboration among citizens has always been core to social change.
