Governance & Power, Handbook

What is the structure of your network? How is it managed? How are decisions made and who does what?


Devolving power & leadership


How does power shift? Networks and hierarchies: a power struggle? What is a network leader?


How can networks unlock the power of communities?


Questions to think about power, who has it, who doesn’t and what impact is this having?


Power and decision-making


Is non-hierarchy always a good idea? How do we make decisions in networks?


Collective decision-making


Peter Lefort from Eden Project Communities talks to us about collective decision-making, why it’s relevant to networks and the processes and techniques that can empower people.

Seeds for Change offers excellent resources for consensus decision making and also covers group work, running workshops, campaigning and more.


The power of collaboration for leadership


Georgina WiIson attended our Networks & Coffee event. She explains how practising collaborative leadership can help people build supportive peer networks.
