Open Courses
Building competence in collective leadership and stakeholder collaboration
+++ Important information on Corona Virus +++

While the Corona Virus has caused disruptions in our personal and professional lives, it also invites us to be mutually supportive and innovate our way into a new future.

Therefore, CLI open course policy during the pandemic is as follows:

  1. Courses planned for March and April 2020 were cancelled and postponed. Registrations remain valid.
  2. Trainings announced for May 2020 or later on will start and take place at the mentioned dates. If trainings on-site are still not feasible, they will be done online. Registrations are always possible and remain valid. More information on each training at the course format section below or at CLI’s online learning section.
  3. You might have to organize more online stakeholder dialogues and meetings in the coming weeks and months. CLI is your trusted partner in offering you methodologies and know-how, as well as conceptualizing and supporting such sessions. Feel free to contact us.

Most of our project managers will work home office these days to help containing the virus. However, the office remains open and staffed. So call us or write us an e-mail to germany@collectiveleadership.com should you have any questions. Stay tuned and stay well!

The CLI team.

Open Courses

CLI’s open course format is ideal for individuals and (small) groups who would like to apply collective leadership and stakeholder collaboration in their daily work. We offer three CLI foundation courses “The Art of …”, each with a different focus.

If you wish to participate all three, find more information under certification track. If you wish shorter introduction workshops instead, find them in the short courses section.

You can find more information on each “The Art of …” training below. The following graph helps you to choose the right foundation course to start with:

The Art of Leading Collectively

This course will help you to implement more outcome-oriented and constructive co-creation on a day-to-day basis for yourself, your team, your organisation, and your change initiative with diverse stakeholders. It equips dedicated change makers in the public and private sector, as well as civil society organisations, with a tool for better co-creation. The dimensions of collective leadership can be learned and enhanced – individually and collectively.

Are you starting a complex cooperation project, or are you in the midst of one you want to improve? Do you need to shift the mind-set of stakeholders toward collaboration, or to find new ways to overcome challenges? Do you need to arrive at tangible outcomes in a short time frame?

The tool presented in The Art of Leading Collectively – the Collective Leadership Compass – helps you to keep your collaboration journey on track and to find the necessary course corrections.
