Collective leadership is an approach to management that utilizes the strengths and contributions of all members of the group to reach a goal. Organizations that use collective leadership engage members to participate in all steps of the decision-making, planning, and implementation stages of a project. Members of leadership recognize that their role in guiding change within a group of people is that of facilitator, rather than authoritarian. At different points within the process, different people have the opportunity to take on leadership roles, depending on their individual strengths and interests.
Adopting elements of collective leadership can build buy-in from the group, distribute responsibility, build teamwork, and instill a culture of collaboration. In this month’s newsletter, we will explore the benefits of collective leadership and ways that it can be used in early learning environments.
