Collaborative Leadership

The need for Public Sector and Civil Service managers to rely on effective collaboration within their own organisation and with others in outside bodies has been steadily increasing.  Effective leadership is the first, and one of the most vital, steps towards achieving organisational goals and with so many projects across the Civil Service and Public Sector requiring collaboration between departments and organisations, simply being able to lead within your team is not enough to ensure success.

Collaborative leadership is essential to bring about and sustain such mutually supportive working, but it is only possible if those in leadership positions understand why and how the critical barriers should be broken down. Those who wish to be truly effective in their leadership role must be able to work efficiently with both internal and external partners, who may make very different and challenging demands.

Part of the Leadership & Management series Collaborative Leadership: Success Through Synergy-Maximising Partnership is a half-day in-house training course by Clair Fisher designed to equip participants with the skills and approaches required for leading top teams and building successful partnerships. At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisation, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.

Please note that this course is available to be delivered as In-House Training only.
