AgilEmpath Season 1 Soft Skills for Leaders; Episode 12- Leadership Skills Pt. 6 Collaborative Leadership


Leadership is becoming more about collaborative agile efforts where executives, managers & staff share information with equal responsibility for the whole. The traditional top-down models where a small group of executives control the flow of information is seen as a dinosaur by millennials. What is emerging is a team that seeks diversity of opinions to build strategies and solve problems. This empowers employees fostering increased engagement with ownership of their work. Employee happiness can only increase with collaborative leadership, where inclusion & belonging are values being lived out from the top down, thus eliminating the culture of top down management. Innovation & creativity flourishes in human beings with positive interactions. To flourish means to live within an optimal range of human functioning, one that connotes goodness, generativity, growth, and resilience. The organic way to foster human functioning in this optimal range is collaborative leadership!
