Leadership strategies & Institutionalize Design Principles engaged by this support:
Leadership Strategy #1: Convince Participants that Collective Efforts Yield Benefits: If people see that they can gain from cooperation, they are more likely to engage in it.
- Leadership Strategy #2: Build Long-Term Time Horizons into Financial Planning: Local government leaders can encourage people to take a long-term view with multi-year forecasts and financial planning.
A long-term vision gives people a reason to coppoerate over a sustained period of time and accentuates the need to fairly distribute the costs and benefits of government services across different generations of citizens and residents. Leaders must also strike a balance between long-term considerations and responding to immediate needs. For instance, merging long-term forecasting with annual budgeting could help plan for both the short and long-term.
