Leadership requires the development of knowledge, skills, and attitudes to effectively work with others. Collaboration encourages increased access to information, the appreciation of different perspectives, and collective responsibility, rather than work silos.

Collaborative leaders assemble diverse teams with different experiences and perspectives. Collaboration can occur within your organization or incorporate partners outside your organization. Collaborative leadership characteristics include open communication, connecting ideas, and unifying efforts toward common goals.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define collaborative leadership and its characteristics.
  2. Develop strategies to enhance collaboration.
  3. Identify potential partners and opportunities for collaboration.
  4. Analyze strategies to overcome potential barriers in collaboration.
  5. Recognize the value of collaboration in fulfilling leadership roles.
