How to Use HPT to Navigate the Gray Space for Positive Change with Deb Page and Judith Hale
This session is about how to use 12 steps to influence decisions and collaborate with stakeholders for positive change. Driving positive change and innovating solutions doesn’t require sitting atop an organization chart or even working inside an organization that owns the outcomes that impact a cause you seek to serve. Working in the gray spaces of your organization, between the boxes, matrices, silos, and power flows, you can become a catalyst of change and a valued problem-solver. Gray Space Organizations are created and work in the gap between organizations that are the authorized “owners” of social and public issues to drive positive change. Gradually, these gray space navigators influence the actions and decisions of owners and stakeholders, convert the “owners” to clients, or leverage their strengths and weaknesses to make needed changes happen. Gray Space organizations use social entrepreneurial approaches to work for the greater good. Social entrepreneurs are willing to assume personal and organizational risk to make needed changes happen. They embrace risk and reward, and are compelled to solve the problems which impact their world.
