Despite differences in funding, location and issues, we have found remarkable similarities in people’s experience of making change. The Social Power report includes insights and tools to help anyone working for transformative change.
The Social Change Grid
We created the Grid to help us to make sense of the many different routes to change that we encountered. It quickly became our most popular tool. Map your existing activity onto the Grid and spot quadrants where you are weaker. Use it as a learning exercise to map a successful campaign. Map a coalition’s spheres of influence and ask if you need to recruit members in other quadrants.
Regardless of scale or resources, we found that effective change-makers share common ways of behaving. Use these descriptions to challenge yourself, your colleagues, and your organisation. Which habits do you want to develop this year?
We’ve been keeping track of how campaigners and change-makers are using the findings of the Social Power report and the tools. We’d love to know if you’ve used any of the tools or findings in your own work. Please drop us a line.
SOCIAL POWER PODCAST
Our Social Power podcasts feature live recordings from our Change Network events. We bring people together to explore instances of change. How did it feel? What did it look like? What can we learn?
Curious about change? The Change Network is a chance to explore change, expand your understanding, and connect with other change-makers. Meet people working on different issues, in different places, using different approaches.
