This website contains numerous resources that support users in understanding what collaborative leadership is, as well as when and how to implement it.
An excerpt from the Community Toolbox: Collaborative Leadership says:
"Collaborative leadership is really defined by a process, rather than by what leaders do. It has much in common with both servant leadership and transformational leadership. It starts, according to David Chrislip and Carl Larson, in Collaborative Leadership, from the premise that '...if you bring the appropriate people together in constructive ways with good information, they will create authentic visions and strategies for addressing the shared concerns of the organization or community.'"
This website provides practical information about collaborative leadership, as well as a PowerPoint presentation and checklist that can be used as for self-assessment.
