8:30 am - 11:30 am
Leadership is an essential element of effective collaboration. Collaborative leaders help other stakeholders develop a shared understanding of what change is possible and establish the processes and capacity needed to achieve mutually-beneficial, shared goals.
Exercising leadership within a collaborative environment is distinct from leading within an organization. Within an organization who leads is often determined by authority. In contrast, anyone within a collaboration can exercise leadership with limited authority. The most effective collaborative leaders recognize their lack of authority and build collaborations that catalyze enduring, positive change using three critical skills:
- Inquiry – Asking compelling questions and listening deeply to challenge assumptions, explore possibilities and make necessary changes to achieve shared goals.
- Understanding Context – Engaging with others to understand motivations, priorities and how to best create conditions for effective collaboration.
- Building Trust – Understanding that trust must be built every day through actions that reinforce trustworthiness.
