Adopting Collaborative Leadership in the Organization

Organizations not only exist to make a profit and be financially sustainable but also to make a difference and have a meaningful legacy using specific business models adopted.

To achieve that outcome organizations must establish effective authority relationships to work together efficiently. This is what entails collaborative relationships and leadership.

Collaborative leadership has had significant developments over the last two decades but, there is still minimal consensus on what constitutes acceptable dimensions of collaborative leadership and how that fits in an organizational context.

These misalignments have resulted in challenges to the full realization of the benefits of collaborative leadership as a result of its skewed implementation and application in an organizational context. The result is a lack of appreciation and belief by business practitioners and organization leaders on the implications of collaborative leadership application on their organization’s financial sustainability.

This effect goes deeper in that organization leaders are not very clear on the impact of their organization’s business model and their role in facilitating successful collaborative leadership.

Check out the below link to a conceptual paper by our CEO Gilbert Ang’ana advising on new developments and perspectives on this topic as he presents a case for the development of a new theoretical model suitable for the expansion of the current understanding of deployment of collaborative leadership in an organizational context.

Hope it will be useful to you as a practitioner and also an academic scholar in a deeper understanding of Collaborative leadership.
