Leading by Convening (LbC): A Blueprint for Authentic Engagement is a resource on how to effectively engage and lead through applied essential habits – such as coalescing around issues, ensuring relevant participating and doing work together – to achieve overall goals. Effective leaders faced with urgent challenges understand the need to cultivate habits that widen their area of impact across roles and levels of system to support sustainable change.
A variety of stake holders nationwide worked together to develop a “blueprint for authentic engagement” – a process for stakeholders to work through together to turn participants into partners and to move teams to deeper levels of collaboration. The result is Leading by Convening, a resource of interactive modules with a user guide and tools that can be used for individual professional development or for training of groups.
LbC was developed by the IDEA Partnership, U.S. Dept. of Education/Office of Special Education Programs funding.
