Collaborative Leadership unpacks the significant shift that has taken place from traditional leadership practices, towards a collaborative approach. Students discover how the principles of ‘Trust’, ‘Divergent Thinking’ and ‘Finding the best Idea’ are at the core of any effective collaborative mindset. The seminar uses relevant examples to equip students with practical skills by providing an opportunity to apply them in an active learning environment.

Collaborative Leadership equips and empowers students with the following learning goals and outcomes

  • Focusing on how collaborative leadership works in practice
  • Identifying how divergent thinking is key to collaboration
  • Explaining the difference between trusting people instead of tolerating them
  • Applying the above principles in action

As per Personal and Social Capabilities in the Australian National Curriculum, students are invited to evaluate the effectiveness of commonly used strategies and work practices; consider control and justify their emotional responses in expressing their opinions and choices; articulate their personal value system and analyse the effects of actions that limit the expression of diverse views; and critique their ability to devise and enact strategies for working in diverse teams, drawing on the skills and contributions of team members to complete complex tasks.
