The latest Anthology has been released!

Pagan Leadership AnthologyThe Pagan Leadership Anthology edited by Shauna Aura Knight and Taylor Ellwood published by Immanion Press.

This book is filled with essays written by authors from the Pagan community.  Many of them I know and respect both as writers and leaders.

This may seem like a “niche” market book, but I think it has a lot to offer outside the Pagan community as well.

The leadership models in Paganism tend to be more collaborative than hierarchical.  The community as a whole is already “outside the norm” and so its members are practiced at stepping away from systems they don’t like.  We often tease that leading Pagans is like herding cats!

We demand a great deal from our leadership and vote with our feet.  Sure there is hierarchy and there are occasionally cults of personality.  Sometimes personal issues and interpersonal dynamics interfere with the effectiveness of a leader in a larger group.  But these kinds of issues also play out in corporate and other community settings.

I am proud to be a contributor to this anthology.  Although the examples are clearly Pagan, the principles are applicable in any leadership situation.
