At the Wright Leadership Institute here in Chicago, I am being trained in a form of oral communication called "Grounded Leadership." It's a communications method that small-group leaders use to assist participants in the Institute's occasional One Decision workshops, which are a great way to begin the life, business, and leadership coaching and development work offered by the Wright Institute.
For the past few weeks, I have been toying with the concept that grounded leadership communications could be useful in the interactive world of Web 2.0 and social networking. I've started a project to write about this because it's something of a missing link. My thesis is that grounded communication answers some of the biggest objections that leaders and organizations have to the deployment of Web 2.0.
