About Collective Leadership Institute. Empowering people to lead collectively towards a sustainable future
CLI empowers people at the individual level by building the competence for collective leadership and stakeholder collaboration.
CLI builds competence at the systemic level (team, organization, collaboration ecosystem) by strengthening the collective capacity of collaborating actors to implement dialogic change and to shift towards more co-creation.
The Art of Leading Collectively
This course will help you to implement more outcome-oriented and constructive co-creation on a day-to-day basis for yourself, your team, your organization, and your change initiative with diverse stakeholders. It equips dedicated change makers in the public and private sector, as well as civil society organizations, with a tool for better co-creation. The dimensions of collective leadership can be learned and enhanced – individually and collectively.
Are you starting a complex cooperation project, or are you in the midst of one you want to improve? Do you need to shift the mindset of stakeholders toward collaboration, or to find new ways to overcome challenges? Do you need to arrive at tangible outcomes in a short time frame?
