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?

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 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.

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.


  • Know how to prepare for your collaboration journey.
  • 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.
  • Take the content of the book ‘The Art of Leading Collectively’ into the practice of outcome-oriented and constructive co-creation.

Participants’ feedback from CLI’s online open courses conducted since May 2020 have proven a similar satisfaction rate with the course contents and facilitation like our in-person workshops (see satisfaction rates in the online learning section). While the content and individual reflection parts of the training are at the same level in CLI’s online trainings, the knowledge transfer even works better for most participants than in classroom trainings. Only group dynamic processes are less developed in the online formats, due to less socializing possibilities. However, all participants so far felt strongly connected to the training group and appreciated peer learning activities. So feel free to make best use of tried and tested high-quality stakeholder collaboration and collective leadership methodologies in new formats while the world keeps changing.

If you cannot participate because the technology does not work out for you, of course you get your money back or a voucher for the next online course. The best way to ensure a smooth online experience is to request a test session with us in advance. This also gives you the chance to talk in advance on your projects, challenges, skills, etc. that you would like to address with the CLI training.
