Distributed leadership

Let LEAD help you build distributed leadership in your organization.

Distributed leadership is the practice of involving employees in performing specific organizational tasks or functions.

These employees are often referred to as resource people and include professional luminaries, team coordinators, project managers, schedulers and other employees who act in a "hybrid role" where they often need to take a leadership role to succeed in their function - but without having formal management rights. 

What are the potentials of spreading distributed leadership as an organizational practice? 
What pitfalls can be associated with operating in a "both-and" role, where resource persons act as equal colleagues a subset of the time, and at other times must act as instructing, guiding or correcting the organization's other employees? 
How can you as a formal leader support your resource people to succeed? 

These are some of the questions you can learn more about during this talk. 

We can offer 1-2 hour lectures or half- and full-day workshops.
