Essential Mindset Shifts for Collective Impact. To be effective, collective impact must consider who is engaged, how they work together, and how progress happens.

Essential Mindset Shifts for Collective Impact

(Illustration by Mitch Blunt) Since the initial publication of “Collective Impact” in Stanford Social Innovation Review (Winter 2011), collective impact has gained tremendous momentum as a disciplined, cross-sector approach to solving social and environmental problems on a large scale. The idea of collective impact is not new—many collaborations pre-date the original article and embody the five conditions of collective impact1—but the original article created a framework and language that have resonated deeply with practitioners who were frustrated with existing approaches to change. Since 2011, hundreds of new collaborations have begun implementing the principles of collective impact in a variety of domains around the globe, from the United States and Canada to Australia, Israel, and South Korea.

Collective impact ideas have also started to influence public policy. Notes. Alumni Global Network. CIEE Alumni Global Network members are part of a diverse and dynamic community of over 350,000 people representing nearly every field of industry and country on earth.

This Week At Macquarie University. More than 3000 students participated in the recent student communications survey, providing invaluable information about the channels that are currently considered most effective, their preferred channels, and what they want to see done better or differently.

This Week At Macquarie University

“Following the success of the recent staff communications survey and the improvements that resulted from those findings, we wanted to support recommendations for improvements in student communication methods and channels with some solid quantitative data,” said Internal Communications Manager David Sams. “It was really interesting to see how closely the findings aligned not only with the feedback from some small, qualitative focus groups we did late last year, but with three years of student communications surveys I’d previously conducted at another institution.”

The College Student: A New Kind of Loyal Customer. Student Loyalty Programs. Last week, we looked at ways that college students can benefit from a number of excellent loyalty programs as they make their way back to hallowed university halls for the start of the school year.

Student Loyalty Programs

Furthermore, we highlighted why college students are an ideal demographic for brand marketers. This week, we’re turning our back-to-school thinking around, on the universities themselves. While there’s plenty to be learned at these fine institutions, we believe that colleges could take a lesson from loyalty programs when it comes to engaging their students. The thing is, higher education has been making attempts to better connect with their students over Twitter, Facebook, and other social media outlets.

But according to a recent article from Inside Higher Ed, schools aren’t making progress when it comes to measuring success. Value Propositions That Work - Anthony K. Tjan. By Anthony K.

Value Propositions That Work - Anthony K. Tjan

Tjan | 8:15 AM September 14, 2009 In my last post, I highlighted the fact that most people can’t explain what their company does — its value proposition. The best way to start getting employees and management aligned is to understand the benefit the company is trying to deliver to its customers. Consider that there are only four types of consumer benefits that matter and by extension only four categories of value propositions that work. Welcome to Forbes.

How Plan works with companies — What you can do

Our partners show great commitment to integrating responsible business practice into their core business strategy. Long-term strategic partnerships Sustainable strategic partnerships with Plan can take many different forms. The main aim of all the relationships is to pursue a set of agreed goals or to jointly meet a critical social need. Plan seeks to agree long-term strategic partnerships with companies in order to bring together joint strategic resources such as products, communications channels, project funding, capital equipment, knowledge, expertise, or intellectual property and usually a combination of many of these, so that together we can positively impact the lives of children. Australia boasts high employees engagement levels. Written by Josh Armstrong According to Gallup's 2013 State of the Global Workplace report released today (9 October 2013), Australia and New Zealand boast some of the highest engagement levels among workers in the world – but we can do better.

Much better. With a ratio of 1.5 engaged employees to every 1 disengaged employee, Australasian workplaces are ever-so-slightly behind the United States and Canada (1.6-to-1). However winning the race isn't enough. Despite being among the best regions in the world for engagement, only 24 percent of all workers are engaged in their jobs in Australia. 16 percent of employees are actively disengaged and an overwhelming 60 percent of workers in Australia are not engaged. Myfuture:Tools and resources. Building Resilience in Primary Students. Chief Investigator: Dr Ania Lian This 2-year project focuses on the development of resilience in primary school children. Resilience is defined as students’ capacity to resource the power of broader community intelligence and, in the process, to develop a sense of belonging to that community.

Resilience is identified as a critically important asset for children in the 21st Century where the rate of change in all aspects of life, largely driven by the exponential growth of technology, is greater than ever before. To this end, the project engages with primary teachers in conceptualising, planning and implementing pedagogic strategies which foreground dialogue as a process of building individual and community capacity.

Life Map: Tool to Examine Your Life. To get the most of your life, it is important to see how your life is doing.

As I’ve written in Vision – The First Step of Life Optimization, all of us should have a vision, a life purpose, that will guide our whole life and provide measurement of our productivity. The macro level view will allow us to see how our life is doing to meet that vision.
