This paper discusses mindsets, competencies and attitudes of community leadership. Metaphors such as playing jazz are used to normalise the complexity of community sector work and starfish to emphasise the power of decentralised leadership. Key messages include looking beyond organisational boundaries, using research to inform strategy,and creating collective learning spaces.
