Collective Leadership Offer
Collective Leadership was offered to cross organisational groups who are grappling with a complex issue and are open to learning and doing things differently.
“Collective Leadership Scotland is, in my experience, an exemplar for how leaders need to be trained for this time. Working as a community of like-minded and motivated leaders, learning to think systemically, focused on innovation, contribution and service—these are the essential ingredients that leaders need now.”
Meg Wheatley, October 2019
We know that we face a number of complex, wicked issues in Scotland, such as poverty, an aging population, climate change, and we know that no single organisation or agency will be able to tackle these alone. We understand that we must work collaboratively to affect change, and that this work is often complex, messy, unpredictable, and can be difficult to achieve. We know that creating the time and space to work collectively can be challenging. The day to day work can override our best intentions, and we can get stuck in our traditional habits and ways of thinking and doing.
Collective Leadership was offered to cross organisational groups who are grappling with a complex issue and are open to learning and doing things differently. This offer includes:
- Skilled facilitation to work with the group of leaders
- Using action and inquiry
- Opportunities to develop and share learning
