The shift is to think yourself as a Leader into Social Change. How can you serve?
If you don’t know what your purpose is yet – Ask yourself “How may I serve?” When you decide to shift yourself into Social Change, you just need to get started. It’s one step at a time. Even when you feel you are not getting anywhere. As an Entrepreneur our visions and dreams go in a zig zag, it never goes in a straight line. If it did we wouldn’t learn our mis-takes or decisions that didn’t work out. By my own experience, I am learning to celebrate them. They are just another opportunity to learn and grow..
What does it mean to lead social change efforts? What does it mean to be a leader in creating social change?
The ability to lead is vital to creating social change. Leadership is a process of which social change is be distributed, promoted, and expressed by leaders to multiple communities and diverse populations. A collective action from a collective group cannot come about if there is no unifying voice, vision, and/or goal. Leaders help to shape and provide a space for people to unite and reach towards their goals. They inspire and motivate others through their actions, behaviors, and words. For social change to occur within institutions, communities, or organizations, individuals would need to know what type of leaders they want to be in the social change process, and how their leadership can have an impact within these arenas.
