Based on more than 10 years experience in successfully navigating challenging contexts with diverse actors, the Collective Leadership Institute offers a modular Accreditation Scheme that equips you with the necessary concepts, methodologies and approaches to implement stakeholder collaboration in the most effective way.

Your key take away

As an accredited Expert in Stakeholder Collaboration you will be able to:

  • Drive effective, high quality stakeholder collaboration processes based on a proven methodology for navigating complex multi-actor settings
  • Become a force for change by capacitating stakeholders with a best practice approach to collaborating in a meaningful and results-oriented way
  • Build functioning collaboration ecosystems that empower teams of people to deliver their shared vision
  • Join an online international practitioner community that strives to continuously improve the effectiveness of stakeholder collaboration

The modular approach

The Accreditation Scheme is composed of 4 on-site modules interspersed with written assignments and on-line learning modules that can be spread over a period of 1-3 years. As a participant, you can enter the scheme with an individual online selfassessment and focus your learning around the practical collaboration challenges you want to address. The Accreditation Scheme is also very well-suited for teams of actors working within a specific system for change. Please see our offers for tailor made trainings that can be combined with open course participation.

The first on-site module is the foundation course The Art of Stakeholder Collaboration 1. After completion of the foundation module, you can continue with a self-steered sequence of the following on-site-modules: The Art of Stakeholder Collaboration 2The Art of Leading Collectively, and The Art of Dialogue.

You will be accredited by the Collective Leadership Institute as a Stakeholder Collaboration Expert after you:

  • have passed through all four on-site modules, engaged in interspersed online modules conducted on our e-learning platform for practitioners from all over the world:
  • have written two case studies (max 4 pages each) showing how you have successfully applied our methodology.

If you have already taken part in any of our open or tailored programmes, including our Young Leaders for Sustainability programme, you have already earned partial credit toward accreditation.
