Each week this summer, I’ll be posting a conversation from the interview program I do for the Chronicle of Philanthropy. The show is called “Making Change.” And after a year of hosting the show, I’m happy to add these interviews to the mix here at the blog!
Making Change has some of the best content on social change you can find anywhere. And I don’t feel boastful saying so, because the content all comes from amazing guests, with amazing experience in creating change.
This week’s highlighted interview is with Peter Block – author, consultant, teacher and inspired advocate for the power of communities. You can listen to the interview / conversation via the player below, or you can download it from iTunes here.
(If you are reading this in your email, the player may not appear below. Please click through here and listen at the blog online.)
The thread that runs through all of Peter’s work is the theme of creating communities that work for all of us, whether those communities are workplaces, neighborhoods, or Peter’s own home community of Cincinnati, Ohio. Not surprising to readers here, Peter has found that communities that aim at creating what is possible, rather than fixing what is wrong, are far more likely to create visionary, transformational change.
Enjoy listening – and if you have thoughts as you listen, please note them in the comments!
