A crash course in changing the world.

So what makes a social innovator ?

I think a social innovator is someone who:

  • listens - understands people in their different social context(s);
  • is creative - strive to find innovative ways of doing things;
  • a hard worker - puts effort in what they do;
  • creates value - looks for practical solutions to the problems;
  • an ideal/visionary - whilst having the ability to come up with practical solution,they have a child-like imagination;
  • creates sustainability - empowers others;
  • has the heart to work with people;
  • has social capital - they collaborate with others to find creative solutions,skills,fund etc

I especially like "has the heart to work with people." Working with people can be hard – it can get so messy, chaotic! So many opinions, so many ideas! If you have the heart however it can also be tremendously rewarding. How do you learn how to deal with so many different people all at once?

You sum it up perfectly

I think this is a must-read for people aspiring to be social innovators. Just like Batandwa said, you sum it up perfectly. I'll continue using this as a weighing scale to see whether am still on the right track - because am also an aspiring social innovator. Thanks a lot Rendani

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers.
