Navigating Complex Change for Collective Action

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 mind-set of stakeholders toward collaboration, or to find new ways to overcome challenges?

Do you want to explore a new leadership concept that goes beyond individual leadership and enlivens yourself and the people you work with?

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 organisation, and your change initiative with diverse stakeholders. It equips dedicated change makers in public-, private-, and civil society organisations with a tool for better co-creation - the Collective Leadership Compass. The dimensions of collective leadership can be learned and enhanced - individually and collectively.

Key take aways

• Assess where you are, define what is present and what is missing.

• Map the path, adjust strategies, and know what to shift, to strengthen, or to focus on.

• Convince colleagues and partners that leading collectively will ease the management of complex change.

• Create a six-month action plan for taking the content of the book ‘The Art of Leading Collectively’ into the practice of outcome-oriented and constructive co-creation.
