How do we develop commitment? http://Jblea1016.com
First, by establishing a “mutual context” Then, by understanding our roles http://Jblea1016.com
A mutual context is one in which everyone: • • • • Has respect for personalities Participates in decision making Has freedom of expression and availability of information Shares mutuality in responsibility in defining goals, planning, and conducting activities. Source: Knowles, M. (1992). The Adult Learner. Burlington, MA: Elsevier. http://Jblea1016.com
In our roles, we should be: • • • • Situated: People gain a sense of meaning from the role and believe themselves competent within the role. Social: Influential, influence-able, and interdependent. Autonomous: Self determining. Flexible Source: Blea, J. (2008). A Model for Contextual Leadership. Santa Fe, NM: Redtail Press.
What can we do next? • • Share thoughts about whether or not ours is a mutual context Analyze our respective roles per the listed criteria; why or why not? http://Jblea1016.com
