    Cultivating energy for systems change | Episode 11

    This week we’re joined by Chris Block, who is currently the Chronic Homelessness Initiative Director at Tipping Point Foundation. Previously he was the CEO of American Leadership Forum, Silicon Valley, as well as a number of other roles all really in the thick of it, as a systems leader working on systems change. I think you’ll find he has a fascinating background, with lots of insights to share, so let’s dive in.

    This week we are joined by Gene Bellinger. Gene is one of the most prolific systems thinkers, an early founder of Systems Thinking World, and one of the earliest and most influential evangelists of Kumu (there are a number of features that you should be thanking Gene for).

    Everyone a network weaver | Episode 8

    Everyone a network weaver | Episode 8

    This week we're joined by June Holley, who is a longtime network weaver and author of The Network Weaving Handbook. She's spent much of her career working with communities, often times low-income communities, on complex issues, taking both a systems and a network lens informed by complexity principles.

    In this conversation we touch on lots of different topics from the basics of how do you collect really good, compelling information about the people in your network and see how that network changes over time, to the importance of experimentation and aligning funding to support that experimentation, and also to thinking about the really important role of things like diversity in a network, and how much that can be an unlock and truly an early leverage point for so much of the change that we're trying to create in the world.

    In this episode we catch up with Aldo to learn about how his approach has evolved, what he's learning about how to engage communities in shared sensemaking, what it takes to make maps that are meaningful to communities, and how processes like his are essential to increasing collective impact.
