Social Leadership as Change Agent

Social Leaders acts as change agents in their community.  Through they strive deliberately to improve the world, by creating value for others one step at a time.

The changes brought about by Social Leadership are incremental in nature.   A change movement is created through the gradual process of addressing a problem with one small action at a tome.  When you motivate others to take the same small action, it builds on another, changing society for the better.

Social Leadership should be active in all aspects of society.  This includes business, government, academia, media, religion, family, and community.  Social Leaders can be wealthy businessmen, devoted charity workers, or shop assistants. They do however all have one thing in common: they rely on the incremental effect of their actions. They trust in incremental success, where one small and well planned act will lead to a series of regular increases, ultimately changing the face of society.

Ordinary People Becoming Involved in Social Leadership

A Social Leader is born when one ponders such questions as:

  • What is the highest and best use of my talents and passions?
  • What can I do to have the most positive impact on society?
  • How will the world be better because of my life and my contribution?
  • What was I born to become and accomplish?

Through Social Leadership changes are brought about by doing the most good for the most people using everything with which you have been blessed.  The life of a Social Leader is a perpetual cycle of self-improvement.  As you progress in your own self-development, so you are able to assist others to make progress on their journey.
