In order to be collaborative, to build consensus, and to manage conflict, a leader has to spend time and effort developing other employees. You should help people develop their collaborative skills.
In an article by Mary Jo Asmus (@mjasmus), Asmus discusses how critically important it is for you to develop others in your business or organization. In my work, I speak a lot about “Collaborative Relationships”, where employees are able to communicate and work together effectively. The effective results are happening because everybody is asserting their wants and needs and everybody is working hard to fulfill everybody’s wants and needs.
This type of organizational culture filled with “Collaborative Relationships” is hard work. Leaders need to model the behavior and develop that shared attitude amongst their team.
I especially agree with Asmus’s assessment, “(The best leaders) know that when everyone leads, organizational performance increases and innovation, creativity and output improve.” Employees feel valued, they want to work in that environment, and they assume ownership and responsibility for the success of the organization’s mission and vision.
