Business leaders live in an interdependent world and the last decade has seen a dramatic rise in the speed and scale of these interconnections. But while connection may be inevitable, collaboration is optional and those leaders that succeed in this environment have learned to master three critical skills; sharing control, handling conflict and building positive relationships. The professional duo of Archer and Cameron have been working in this field for over 10 years and were amongst the first business authors to define and explain Collaborative Leadership in their 2008 book. Drawing on the new challenges that leaders face such as responding to Eurozone financial contagion, the growth of social networks, and the rise of Asian competitors, this fully updated and re-structured text provides an easily accessible 'how-to guide' for collaborative leadership in the private and public sector. With end of chapter summaries and new chapters added, this new edition gives business leaders, managers and undergraduate and postgraduate students of management studies the techniques and confidence to manage complex collaborative relationships in a sustainable way. It also acts as a guide for other professionals who are responsible for developing leadership capability in their own organizations.
