Description

Position at Ashoka

The Leadership Role
Ashoka is looking for an extraordinary leader to build such chapters in every major metro area.
  • The leadership required for chapter building involves a very clear understanding of -- and the ability and will to communicate -- the role and importance of chapters in the world’s major movements and the roles Ashoka needs them to play at this moment in history and, more specifically, in the flow of collaborative entrepreneurship jujitsu (CEJ) thrusts.
  • The chapter leader must develop a system that can be easily replicated and managed for finding the right senior leaders in a community and then helping them succeed. This requires almost instant quick successes followed by big successes within six months. This is necessary not only for the leaders but for their energizing and exciting and getting the commitment of others that they and Ashoka need.
  • The leader and their team then must work with the chapters for each to develop the bridges that are going to be most valuable for their community, for the chapter members, and for the global and local “everyone a changemaker” movement.
  • The program’s leadership will also have to develop a carefully-crafted engagement path to help each leadership group and chapter, in very differing circumstances, succeed.
The chapter leader must be one of Ashoka’s most brilliant at envisioning how all the elements of the movement must come together (in ever-changing, synergy-maximizing teams of teams) and then at enabling this to happen in fact in the world’s metro areas - the frontiers of change and now the main stage.
