Collective Leadership

Collective Leadership is offered to cross organisational groups who are grappling with a complex issue and are open to learning and doing things differently

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.

Workforce Scotland is now launching a Collective Leadership offer, building on our established Pioneering Collaborative Leadership programme. Collective Leadership is 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
  • Individual and team coaching
  • Opportunities to develop and share learning

In order to further explore the Collective Leadership offer, we will be hosting Taster Sessions during the spring, for individuals and potential participant teams to understand and experience the theory and practice of Collective Leadership, and the commitment it will require in advance of applying to be a participant team:

Please have a look at our offer booklet for further information of the Collective Leadership or contact us to set up an exploratory conversation.
