Partnering with the Collective Leadership Institute for Impact
Empowering people to address complex challenges in collaboration



Dear Madam or Sir,

Fostering economic development, addressing climate change, ensuring food security, meeting health challenges, enhancing good governance, ensuring responsible supply chains and improving natural resource management – all these challenges can only be effectively addressed through robust collaboration and collective leadership.

Navigating such complex challenges depends on the capacity of a collective to catalyse and implement change for the common good.

What started small is now growing. Leading Collectively for societal and global change – which we have promoted over the past decade – is an idea whose time has come. This approach is gaining momentum and is described with rich case studies in Petra Kuenkel's new book
'The Art of Leading Collectively - Co-Creating a Sustainable, Socially Just Future'.
