Description
Collaborative leaders consistently demonstrate five qualities: the drive to achieve goals through collaboration; the ability to listen carefully to what is being said (and not said) to understand others’ perspectives; the desire to look for win-win solutions; the use of pull techniques, rather than push, to accomplish goals; and the capacity to strategically connect projects to a larger purpose. These techniques can be effective even in hierarchical organizations.
 
This report points to research indicating that the failure to collaborate is a significant contributor to poor performance in senior leadership positions. A growing body of knowledge tells us what makes collaboration work. This report highlights the story of a stagnating industrial town that is finding new life through community collaboration. Then it discusses the characteristics of collaborative leaders and what makes them tick. It concludes with a discussion of challenges to being a collaborative leader.
