Collaborative Leadership Across Communities

About this course

How can leaders work together to secure wider system value through sharing and collaborating?

This one day seminar explores collaborative leadership from a community perspective:

  • It examines how leaders can better engage people in a genuinely participatory process to improve their communities.
  • It explores how community participation in ‘collaborative incubators’ can unleash their ideas and enterprising energies.
  • Crucially it will help you be a catalyst for both civic leadership and collaborative empowerment across your communities.

How can you as a leader engage, build and support community based collaborative activities and solutions?

If you do so successfully, it will result in two outcomes:

  1. You will have helped create the right conditions to support and sustain community engagement and participation
  2. Your collaborative leadership will foster a more active civic engagement in the co-design and co-delivery of public services
