Did you know that the Kingston Land Trust staff have been practicing shared leadership for the past year? This means we have been making decisions collectively, that we co-represent our organization, and we each lead the areas of work that we are interested in. Instead of the traditional top-down nonprofit structure, we have found that this democratic approach is much healthier for us, and for serving our community.
We will be deepening our practices over the coming year. Reach out if you would like to know more about our budding model (it was inspired by the 2019 presentation of Alternatives to Hierarchy: Exploring Shared Leadership in the Workplace hosted by Commonwealth Hudson Valley & Good Work Institute)!
