As organizations consider candidates for collaborative leadership roles, they should ask the following six questions:
- Can this leader achieve results by influencing rather than directing?
- Can this leader share ownership, even if it means sharing credit and rewards?
- Can this leader delegate and let others deliver results?
- Has this leader demonstrated the ability to motivate groups of diverse individuals who may not share her viewpoints or perspectives?
- Has this leader demonstrated the ability to make and implement decisions collaboratively?
- Can this leader get results even when he has no direct control over people or resources?
