Leaders are only as good as the teams that support them. That support comes from collaboration, rather than coercion. Today’s leaders are challenged with creating a collaborative culture to assure alignment, commitment, and support from colleagues, team members, and key stakeholders. Establishing collaboration as a foundation for your leadership style will enhance the creativity, contribution, and productivity of your team.

Through engaging discussions, exercises, and exploration of collaborative leadership, this course will provide the fundamental tools and concepts you need in order to implement collaborative processes that can be used to make critical decisions, manage stakeholders, leverage network connections, and align teams for success. Using your real-life experiences, we will apply role-play scenarios and group exercises to translate the learning, to ensure that clear commitments are made and met, and that goals are aligned, all with a collaborative mindset. We will also address building trust and dealing with conflict, and preventing and resolving people problems that block collaboration. By the end of this course, you will know how to translate these practical tools and techniques to your leadership role.
