Effective collaboration calls for a special kind of leadership.
Research conducted by Cisco Systems identified four traits shared by collaborative leaders:
- They are authentic and follow through on their commitments.
- They pursue transparent decision making relentlessly.
- They view resources as instruments of action, not as possessions.
- They codify the relationship between decision rights (e.g. Who gets to make decisions? Are all decisions tied to funding?), accountability and rewards.
