Spread Collective Leadership

Help us realise the Collective Leadership vision!

Talk about Collective Leadership in your own network, empower people around you, convince your organisation to act for more sustainability in leadership, share your thoughts about Collective Leadership with us, tell us about your own change initiative, let us find ways of building capacity in your country, region, organisation, or company.

Join the dialogue

Regular dialogue events bring people from different sectors and backgrounds together to exchange on Collective Leadership themes or across an array of topical issues.

The CLI Transformative Partnership Award

CLI fills the gap of prizes that still award purely results, rather than the development of quality processes and methods towards sustainable results. Process and system skills for partnerships are a key competence that strengthens resilience, and that shows sustainable solutions to the complex goals of the 2030 Agenda.
Therefore, feel free to learn more and apply for the Transformative Partnership Award.
