When discussing leadership strategies for the workplace, the term “collaborative leadership” surfaces frequently. It is a methodology that is essential to the success of all businesses regardless of product, service or niche, and has less to do with manager versus employee than employee versus employee engagement.
The goal of collaborative leadership is to eliminate the biggest threat to business productivity; the silo mentality. Businesses are now realizing that the ability to recruit star players to your organization does not ensure success if those players are not encouraged to collaborate as a team. Or if they are not shown how to value inspiration and innovation from all possible sources.
