Influence Collaborative Leadership
How to provide a collaborative LEADERSHIP style through consistent influence & direction.
What is collaborative leadership? It is all about how people interact across functional and organizational boundaries.
It requires cognitive diversity as collaborative leadership will not be successful if you are collaborating with a team of individuals that think the same, have similar backgrounds and experience, or even occupy the same hierarchical positions.
Collaborative leadership is a powerful way to inspire creativity and innovation, which requires divergent thinking and conversations.
Trust, reliability, integrity and honesty is so important for collaborative teams as it isn’t just about people working together.
It is important to create a psychological safe space were people feel secure, valued and trusted.
As a leader your role is a connector who has the ability to link people, divergent ideas and resources that wouldn’t normally converge with one another. Connectors are critical to collaboration.
To be a collaborative leader, there are 7 qualities to be prepared for:
- take risks
- be an active listener
- show passion for what you do
- have an optimistic mindset
- simplify for your people
- actively manage tension and strong personalities
- have the confidence to share credit
