Eight Key Indicators for Collaborative Leaders [INFOGRAPHIC]

April 3, 2013
As the workplace changes, collaborative leaders are emerging as the faces of the future.

Collaborative leadership, as defined by the Collaborative Lead Training Co., "is a philosophy of leadership where the leader becomes a facilitator instead of an authority figure and allows the team or a group of people to collectively discuss problems, make decisions and innovate solutions." 

Gianluigi Cuccureddu, co-founder of Damarque, a company offering sustainable solutions to improve perforance and innovation, sees collaborative leadership as the way of the future. He urges companies to take this approach rather than one with a "Zeus culture." 

On his blog, Cuccureddu said, "In a time where organizations are more and more perceived as platforms, I believe that leaders need to be platforms as well."
