You may want to check out a new set of articles in the Social Innovations Journal, an online journal for practitioners. In the first five articles of this special issue, Bruce Goldstein examines how netweavers can build and maintain the enabling conditions for productivity, commitment, creativity, and purpose in a time of disruption. These papers emerged from a three-year partnership with some of the world's most highly experienced and effective netweavers. The core of these articles are the words of the netweavers themselves, which Goldstein organized and accompanied with commentary to make them coherent and cohesive. We hope you find these ideas useful as you lead your organizations to adapt to changing conditions and new contexts, scale innovation, and respond to crisis. This work was supported by NSEC.
