Praxis


Praxis works with people inside the organisation to prepare for and drive sustainable change

Praxis shifts the focus from the external to internal. The role of the leader is to connect, persuade and encourage people to mobilise a movement of change. In this respect, there is a need to listen to new voices from within the organization, to pay attention to new quarters. The work of the Praxis phase is more organic.  It involves convening, facilitating, connecting and challenging people within the organisation to use their energy and talents in new ways.  It involves at times bringing the outside in and taking the inside out.  This approach draws on the experience of starting and sustaining movements. Movements are non-hierarchical, they work largely with a shared vision, effectively deploy local knowledge and their members understand how to mobilise groups. The Praxis phase works with the grain, using the energy and commitment of the people within the organisation to sign up and move in the new direction.
