Course description

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 want to explore a new leadership concept that goes beyond individual leadership and enlivens yourself and the people you work with?

This course module 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 public-, private-, and civil society organisations with a tool for better co-creation. The dimensions of collective leadership can be learned and enhanced – individually and collectively.

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


  • Assess where you are, define what is present and what is missing.
  • Map the path, adjust strategies, and know what to shift, to strengthen, or to focus on.
  • Convince colleagues and partners that leading collectively will ease the management of complex change.
  • Create a six-month action plan for taking the content of the book ‘The Art of Leading Collectively’ into the practice of outcome-oriented and constructive co-creation.


The training schedule for presence days is:

25 June: Explore Aliveness; Recognize your Strengths with the CL Compass
26 June: Leadership Journey; Activate your Strengths for Leading Collectively
27 June: Build Momentum for Collective Leadership; Improve Collaboration
28 June: Building Blocks for Collaborative Success; Driving the Future Together


+++ Important information +++

This training is planned as a hybrid event – both in-person participation in Potsdam, Germany, and online participation at Central European Time (CET) are possible. Please choose your format when you register.

CLI reserves the right to change an in-person participation into an online participation if you do not get your visa on time or other short-term notice reasons prevent you from coming to the course venue. Furthermore, the same applies if new pandemic situations occur that do not allow your participation on-site. Registrations remain valid in any of the cases given. We will come back to you individually in such situations and find the best possible solutions together.
