Peer Powered public service and local change
Leadership by the many, not the few.
If you work in public service, local community development, or any social transformation, you will know that the future is networked. Our world is shifting.
From triangles and boxes; to circles and webs.
From top-down; to everyone plays a part.
From mechanistic and planned; to complex and evolving.
Amongst such complexity, there is a natural resource that embraces this shift to a networked way of living and work and can help us navigate it: we call it Peer Power.
In Peer Powered public service and local places people empower each other's strengths and ideas for change.
Coaching Communities are skilled networks that empower people to lead their own change, together.
We partner with local communities and organisations who want to want to tackle significant social issues in your patch pragmatically and powerfully, and know you can’t do it alone.
As a social enterprise, our focus is on enabling those who have traditionally been disadvantaged, disempowered or typically led, to take charge and lead change.
Our simple formula
We foster empowered and collaborative action in organisations and communities by giving people skills and a network. It’s a simple formula!
1) seed leadership skills amongst those who are typically ‘led’
2) grow a network of peers who can empower each other to achieve their goals
3) watch them enact ideas that you would never have thought of and take stewardship of them
We have three incremental development programmes that seed and grow peer coaching skills and networks and support the conditions for collaborative leadership in organisations and local places.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US
Members of previous coaching communities share what changed for them
“I’m always looking for ways to manage my health, how I can work around it, work with it. It really sped up the process.”
Resident & Community Organiser, Bromley by Bow
“The more you talk about it, and the more you look at the project, you gain clarity on why you’re moving forward with it and why you think it’s a good idea.”
Resident and Community Organiser, Bromley by Bow
“In the group, you’re getting multiple perspectives. So it’s a matter of just getting that vision or knowing that you’re not alone in your thoughts”
