What is Community Inc?

Community Inc. is a metaphor for the idea that people can build solidarity in a community. If we all become interested in the business of Community Inc. then we will work collaboratively to ensure we develop strong social leaders. Social leaders however, often fall into the trap of insularism. How do we get unstuck from our past practices and principled experiences? We may talk the talk of shared leadership, but do we really walk the walk?

The founders of the Community Inc. concept are John Thornburn, Reena Clarkson, and Alex Gaio. Together we have a vision that if we can help Board Members, community champions, and citizens who care develop a deeper connection with the power of shared leadership then together, we can all create stronger communities.

To facilitate this communication of our vision, we have developed a Leadership Conference. The conference is a series of four workshops developed by Building Better Practice. Each workshop is part of a cycle based on principles of community based participatory action research.

Be part of our workshop by registering today at www.communityinc.tk  Registration is still only $200 for the full workshop!
