PIONEERING PEOPLE TRANSFORMATION
APPROACH FOR ORGANISATIONS.

Collective Leadership can be defined as an embodied, systemic and agile way of leading together. With our Collective Leadership programmes, we offer a proven methodology to support organisations on their journey to long-term culture change and human innovation since 2010. Through our embodied approach to leadership and understanding systemic principles, we support leaders to collaborate and innovate together more effectively.

We like to see ourselves as ‘facilitators of people transformation’: we know how to transform your organisation and help you create the circumstances for everyone to flourish. As a result, silo behavior transmutes to a powerful sense of ownership for the whole. People at all levels are energised to contribute.

WE USE THE METAPHOR
OF A FLOCK OF GEESE TO
EXPLAIN WHAT IT IS ABOUT...

Geese fly in a V-formation, which protects them from the wind. There is no hierarchy; each takes it in turn to be the leader, to be in the middle, or to take up the rear. They shift and re-pattern their system according to the needs of the moment. The whole flock is connected and stays in formation, even as individual positions change. They sense collectively when to move, change direction or stop, in tune with the wider system around them. They all stay focused and encourage each other by honking. Like them, we need the whole system in order to be at our full potential. We are only as strong as our weakest link!

CORE PROGRAMME

The core programme consists of three 3-day Collective Leadership development retreats, each with a different angle on embodied and systemic leadership, combined with coaching and integration elements. The programme is available for intact teams, as well as individual pioneers and change agents that would like to explore Collective Leadership. We are always focused on making people transformation happen, while at the same time tailoring and customising the content and angle to your specific needs.

WHAT IS PEOPLE TRANSFORMATION?

 

WORK TOGETHER AS ORGANIC AND
SELF-ORGANISING AS A FLOCK OF GEESE

The geese metaphor inspired us to develop our Collective Leadership programmes. Being a collective leader requires us to think and behave with systems awareness, like the geese – that is what makes them so, adaptable and agile. It starts with knowing everyone’s strengths, and how to leverage these together using our whole-body intelligence and the wisdom of the group. When we come together with deep awareness, heart connection and shared purpose, it becomes much easier to connect, contribute and take ownership for the whole, instead of operating in our separate silos.

OUR FORMULA:
WHAT MAKES OUR
PROGRAMMES DIFFERENT?

Our programmes are different than other leadership programmes you have experienced before. We focus on developing your people, creating awareness and raising consciousness through experiential learning in a safe environment. By delivering an experience that always includes our 6 key elements, we guarantee transformation and culture change to happen for your people and organisation.

PAY IT FORWARD.


We strongly believe in the concept of “Pay it forward”. After getting started with your key leaders, we support them to enable large-scale and sustainable people transformation, both within and beyond your organisation.

 

Together we can do much more than we think we can.

In other management trainings you feel like you have to keep up appearances. They never came to my core, not the way the Collective Leadership programme did. The programme is challenging and confronting at times; and it has brought me very valuable insights and knowledge that still have an impact today. 

For instance, being present is something I still work on. Something simple like looking into my colleagues’ eyes and asking what is on their minds before we get started, helps us get present and makes meetings more effective.

We used to be a very hierarchical organisation. As soon as there was a problem, people would bring it to management. Now we’re making sure that everyone takes ownership by giving room for employees to rely on their own knowledge and talent. Other trainings are focused on individual leadership but in Collective Leadership the whole organisation is involved. All together, we can do much more than we think we can.
