Closing the Gap: Knowing and Doing

By Hayim Herring

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, January 2010

This article looks at the intersection between leadership and the art of tzimtzum (contraction or letting go) and its value in today's environment. The author highlights the importance of leadership that is used to empower others rather than inhibiting potential and unique abilities. The piece also asserts that in the current web 2.0 environment, leadership described through tzimtzum is possible because of how individuals interact through social networking tools. The piece concludes by asserting that effective leadership will be about mobilizing people to organize and act.
