People In Aid Leadership Workshop: Collaborative Leadership for Social Impact
Following on from the successful Boundary Spanning Leadership workshop in December 2011, we are pleased to be working with the Center for Creative Leadership as we look at the next stage of the organisational leadership journey at a Workshop open to all in London, UK on 18 October 2012
The workshop aims to explore the development of a a Leadership-driven Ecosystem for International Humanitarian and Development Organisations, by:
Emphasising leadership practice - not theory
Using contemporary cases from around the globe
Showing how leadership works at all levels in any organisation
Featuring guest faculty who are delivering on-site leadership programs in Africa, Asia and the Americas
Moreover, this workshop allows you to experience practical methods that address the unique needs of the international aid and development community at headquarters and (most importantly) field operations level. And this workshop explores just how to do that in your organisation.
The Center for Creative Leadership explain Collaborative Leadership as “building relationships and trust between stakeholders in an ecosystem that brings different – and sometimes adversarial – people, teams and agencies together to collaborate to forge a common direction.”
Participants will have an understanding of how the Collaborative Leadership model can:
Enhance and reinforce capacity building, through greater collaboration inside and outside your workplace
Motivate staff at all levels and across organisational boundaries
Provide organisations with new directions and insights to bolster their leadership abilities and practice effective, lasting Collaborative Leadership.
The workshop will begin with an explanation of what Collaborative Leadership is and how to apply it. This will be followed by a lunch break to continue discussion and then two practical, interactive sessions in the afternoon. These will use case studies and audience involvement to provide an in-depth guide to using Collaborative Leadership as a practical tool in your organisation.
Who Should Attend?
This is not a workshop for only the human resource professional. Managers and specialists can also learn a great deal about how to get the very best out of their people and (most important) how to develop deep collaboration across organisational boundaries. This is the opportunity to discover the very latest thinking - and doing – about organisational leadership.

The Guest Faculty
The guest faculty for October’s workshop brings together two different Center for Creative Leadership professionals. Lyndon Rego has over a decade of experience delivering leadership programs around the globe. He brings insight and experience to this event, especially in his ability to explain the tools and techniques of Collaborative Leadership. Lyndon’s audiences have ranged from the most senior corporate leaders in the Americas, to rural communities in Africa and Asia – his talent lies in the ability to work at both ends of the spectrum.
Aaron White joined the Center for Creative Leadership in 2011 building on a history of international development. Now the Deputy Regional Director, Africa, Aaron has worked in East Africa since 2005. Since joining CCL he has concentrated much of his time bringing leadership development to small communities. His experiences in Tanzania, Rwanda, Somalia and Ethiopia will form a key part of the case study section of the workshop.
Please note: If you are unable to make the event in London in October, the workshop will also to be held In Brussels in February, please check our website for further details shortly or contact us.
