Communication: The power behind collaborative leadership

As more and more organizations move toward a collaborative culture, a new leadership model is emerging—one that replaces command and control with trust and inclusion.

The leader’s new role is to encourage team members to see themselves as valued contributors, to help them build their knowledge base and expand their personal networks, and to motivate them to offer their ideas and perspectives in service of a common goal. Communicators can help their leaders understand how to create an environment in which people choose to participate and contribute.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How communicators can help their leaders create a collaborative culture.
  • The key elements of collaborative leadership.
  • The communication challenges of collaborating face-to-face and virtually.
  • The foundation of a collaborative culture—the five levels of trust.
