IIBA® Ottawa-Outaouais in collaboration with Chapter sponsor Algonquin College Corporate Training is pleased to host a full-day workshop on "Co-creative Leadership" as part of the Chapter’s growing Skills™ Workshops and Masterclasses - a professional development series designed specifically for BAs by BAs.

Facilitated by Steffan Surdek

Overview and Purpose:

Co-creative leadership proposes the type of leadership required to create a working environment that results in increased collaboration, better communication, collective ownership and a focus on high quality results.
Co-creative leaders:
  • Identify, awaken and empower the dormant leaders in their organization
  • Are a voice among many when collaborating with their teams
  • Inspire and foster engagement rather than compliance
  • Embody and model the values they believe in both at home and at work
  • Are aware and take ownership of their personal impact on the people around them
  • Encourage teams to learn from their mistakes and through experimentation

The five key skills of a co-creative leader are:

  • Being a voice among many in the conversation
  • Unleashing the leaders around them
  • Dancing with the system around them
  • Build capacity on their teams
  • Encourage experimentation and learning by doing

This hands-on workshop will explore the five key skills of a co-creative leader and will allow you to experience them through simple games.

Goals of this workshop:  

  • Learn, practice and experiment each of the five key skills of a co-creative leader
  • Expand the perspectives of participants on leadership in the workplace
