Annotation

These self-study modules introduce and explore the Leading by Convening habits of interaction that can help state leaders engage stakeholders as allies to reach shared goals.

Each module provides several short, easy-to-access lessons that can be applied to state work. Modules currently available are:

• Module 1: Authentic Engagement

This module provides an overview of the IDEA Partnership blueprint on Leading by Convening. It outlines the essential habits that leaders need to cultivate to build allied relationship across groups. The tools and learning activities help groups identify their values and shared interests, and work together to improve practice.

• Module 2: Coalescing Around Issues

This module helps us understand and develop a habit of practice in which diverse groups of people come together around shared issues or problems of practice that they want to resolve. This habit is called Coalescing Around Issues. Individuals with differing backgrounds and experiences share, learn, and act together to achieve their common goal.

• Module 5: Reviewing and Reflecting on Engagement Over Time

This module helps us understand and develop a habit of practice in which diverse groups of people come together around shared issues or problems of practice that they want to resolve. This habit is called Coalescing Around Issues. Individuals with differing backgrounds and experiences share, learn, and act together to achieve their common goal.

A book published in 2014 that explores the concept of leading by convening is also available for download at no cost.
