COURAGEOUS LEADERSHIP, 
GENUINE RELATIONSHIPS,
LASTING CHANGE

Innovative organisations thrive not because they breed superstars but because they cherish, nurture and support the vast range of talents, personalities and skills that true creativity require.

Meet Collaboration Campfire™

Collaboration Campfire™ transforms leaders with ten months of group coaching and innovative taught content.

We reach the parts that traditional leadership programmes cannot reach. We reach the people that traditional leadership programmes cannot reach.

The world needs your collective breakthroughs. Creating a culture of collaboration with agile leaders is an urgent priority. With vast experience in the field, we see that the greatest barrier to multi-partner, interdisciplinary collaboration is human-to-human relationships.

Let’s face it.  Things are stacked against true collaboration.

We often ask our best and brightest minds to share their intellectual capital and most precious assets in a vacuum of trust. People simply don’t just share freely in the absence of genuine relationships. It’s unrealistic to expect people to “just be collegiate”.

We see how collaborative leaders are often:

Frustrated...

with the time and energy taken by:

  • Chasing people for contributions.
  • Dealing with in-fighting, game-playing, political posturing.
  • Trying to support people on verge of burn-out.

Struggling...

to stay motivated because they:

  • Can’t see how to move things forward in this big, messy, amorphous project.
  • Don’t have the time or headspace to keep perspective.

At a loss...

about how to engage people when:

  • Everyone has loyalties elsewhere.
  • Individuals are unsure what’s in it for them.

Overwhelmed...

with:

  • Anxiety and stress from too many competing pressures.
  • Isolation from not feeling part of a positive group of colleagues.

We see how collaborative projects often…

Get stuck or derailed

Waste intellectual capital, time, energy and funding

End up ‘fudged’ to produce an outcome that is far the original intention

Collaborative leaders need nurturing to:

Discover authentic confidence, their purpose and their voice

Develop their emotional agility and resilience to stress

Cultivate an inclusive culture of collaboration

Work with clear, calm intention and focus

Only BEING differently really leads to DOING differently.

We have been looking deeply at how people are learning now and what really works when it comes to changing the way people work collaboratively.

We have distilled the most impactful content from our development work and added powerful elements that cannot be taught well in a workshop. Elements like emotional agility, mindfulness and intentional productivity practices. Combining these with coaching creates a transformational learning experience.

We’ve created a unique learning journey that supports real-time collaboration so that every part is immediately useful.
