Recently delivered for Stanford University Continuing Studies... (applicable to leaders at every level)
A leader is only as good as the team that support them. That support comes from collaboration versus coercion.
Today’s leaders are challenged with creating a collaborative culture to assure alignment, commitment, and support from colleagues, team members, and key stakeholders. Establishing collaboration as a foundation for your leadership style will enhance the creativity, contribution, and productivity of the team membership. The common purpose that develops through a win/win mentality provides for higher motivation and responsibility to make and meet commitments to deliver team and organizational goals.
For many teams that are not co-located, the value of leading through collaborative processes helps teams bond more quickly and avoids the need for burdensome bureaucracy or costly infrastructure. Team members will simply worker smarter and better together because of the core principles and values of team work that are established, modeled, and reinforced.
The videos are supported by easy to follow slides that you will want to replay multiple times as you translate your learning to action and results.
