C4CW co-founders John Ott and Rose Pinard have developed Living Collective Wisdom through years of original research, and decades of direct experience supporting large-scale change efforts.
A comprehensive framework for large-scale systems and community change, Living Collective Wisdom invites us to embody a different way of engaging—ourselves, each other, our systems and communities—in support of profound results.
Living Collective Wisdom begins with a commitment to master four core competencies: leadership, living systems, community, and results.
We embody these core competencies through four developmental aspects of large-scale change: cohering a movement; building the movement; stabilizing a living system; and sustaining a living system.
Together, these developmental aspects and core competencies help guide groups committed to profound results: they affect every facet of a large-scale change effort.
