Leadership Development

Many challenges facing organisations in the public sector today require solutions that go beyond organisational boundaries. The issues require broad engagement to identify strategic, holistic and relevant solutions.

Effective collaboration is much more than sitting together in a room, cooperating, sharing information and discussing the needs of each party. Effective collaboration across functions and organisations requires a greater reliance on a broader range of people and process skills than functional and organisational expertise and allegiance. As a result, leaders and managers need to develop a different array of skills and practices to be effective in their ‘boundary spanning’ responsibilities.

Collaborative Leadership is about managing complexity – merging the needs of many parties towards a common goal, ensuring holistic thinking in decision making, building new, unified approaches to delivering solutions and collectively agreeing behaviours and practices, rather than relying on existing or tried and tested means.

This one-day course, Cross Agency Collaborative Leadership, will explore the expectations of leadership to work collaboratively to deliver better, citizen centred and effective services while also uncover the challenges of working in a truly collaborative way. Addressing these challenges with the support of case examples, models and frameworks will help participants build essential practices and behaviours to ensure greater success in cross and intra-organisational collaboration.
