Collaborative forum description
‘T’ shaped leaders have two distinct characteristics, a depth of skill that allows them to contribute to the creative process and a disposition towards collaboration.
Effective collaboration has two essential elements.
First, empathy which is important because it allows people to imagine a problem from different perspectives. Second, enthusiasm, which is focused on providing innovative solutions when confronted with ambiguous and complex problems.
Developing T shaped characteristics can enable an organisation to move away from a reliance on narrow, hierarchical, decision making processes to a wider, better informed and often accelerated collaborative approach which fully exploits the talents, knowledge and skills available within the oganisation, to deliver better solutions.
