Course Description

Collaborative Leadership

The Programme
Many challenges facing organisations in the public sector today require solutions that go beyond traditional functional and organisational allegiances. However, leading collaboratively is complex. It is difficult to merge the needs of many parties towards common goals, ensure positive relations and work practices, develop a broad competency base and prevent processes getting stuck on individual agendas.
Developing the essential skills and practices means you’ll enhance your versatility to use a collaborative approach for a number of roles, including:
  • Resolving organisational / sectoral challenges.
  • Leading cross-functional and intra-organisational collaborative initiatives.
  • Leading Boards and Executive teams.
  • Managing people and driving forward change.
This two-day collaborative leadership programme will explore the expectations of leadership to work collaboratively to deliver integrated, better, citizen centred service. While discussing the benefits of collaboration to organisations and to the public, we will also uncover the challenges of working in a truly collaborative way.
To address these challenges we will look at case examples, models and frameworks to help participants build the essential approaches and identify necessary skills and practices to be effective in their ‘boundary spanning’ responsibilities.
